Method

STEP 1

Combine 3/4 cup (180ml) warm water, yeast, sugar and salt in a jug. Whisk with a fork to dissolve. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place for 5 mins or until bubbles appear on the surface.

STEP 2

Sift flour into a bowl. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Mix to form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 mins or until elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Stand in a warm place for 25 to 30 mins or until the dough has doubled in size.

STEP 3

Use your fist to punch down the dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth.

To cook, spread with toppings and bake at 180˚C for 15-20 mins or until the base is cooked through and golden.
