  • 2 cups of all purpose flour,
  • 1 teaspoon active-dry yeast,
  • 3/4 cup of luke warm water,
  • 1 teaspoon salt and

  • Finally knead the dough with a mixer or by the using hand force. Knead it until it forms a smooth and spring like texture. If it so happens that the dough formed is sticky, then add some flour to it. Try to limit excessive use of flour. Now let it rest for an hour.
  • Then roll out the pizza approximately into 14” inch diameter. Take a handsome amount of dough and start rolling it. It may feel difficult to stretch it at first, but relax, take your time and fix it properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Secret to a Good Pizza?

Pizza is one of the world’s most popular foods, and for a good reason. It is easy to make, tastes great, and can be customized to your taste preferences.

What Makes Pizza More Tasty?

Some people believe that a pizza with lots of toppings is more flavorful than one with just a few toppings. Others believe that a pizza with a crispy crust is more flavorful than one with a doughy crust. There’s no right or wrong answer – it all depends on your personal taste!

What Is the Most Important Ingredient in Pizza Dough?

There are a number of ingredients that are essential for making pizza dough, but one of the most important is yeast. Yeast is a sponge-like organism that helps to form the leavening agent in the dough which makes it rise. This fermentation process results in a light and airy crust, as well as flavor contributions from the yeast.

If you’re not able to get your hands on fresh yeast or don’t want to wait for it to ferment, then you can use baking powder instead. However, be aware that these substitutes often result in heavier and chewier pizzas than those made with fresh dough.
