This recipe takes about 30-40 minutes to make. It is as fast as calling the pizza place. I also use the exact same ingredients to make a Foccacia.

Serving : about 4

Preparation: 10 minutes

Baking and waiting : 40 minutes

Ingredients:

-300 g flour (about 0.65 lbs)

-1 tbsp yeast

-3 tbsp olive oil

-1 glass of warm water (about 250 ml)

-salt

Instructions:

Mix the water and the yeast together. Let it sit for 2 minutes on the side. In a large bowl, mix the water+yeast with the flour and salt. Knead the dough until you have a smooth, non-sticky dough (you might end up adding a little bit more flour). Brush the dough with olive oil.

Cover the bowl with a clean and dry dishcloth.

Let the dough rest 30-40 minutes in a warm area or until doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 525˚F

Lightly grease a sheet pan. Spread the dough with your hand.

  • If you are making Foccacia, don’t make it too thin (3/4 of an inch). Optional : Garnish it with sliced tomato, sliced onions or herbs. Sprinkle with olive oil and salt.
  • If you are making pizza, spread the dough thinner (1/4 0f an inch) : Garnish it with tomato sauce, cheese, ham, or whatever is left over in your fridge.

Place the pizza for 5-10 minutes in the oven (it cooks really fast, so the first time you make it, open the oven to make sure it’s not burning).

Enjoy !
