Pizza recipe

Makes 6 pizzas


  • 18 ounces bread flour (preferably Double Zero "00") plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 cup lukewarm water + extra if necessary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ounce fresh baker's yeast cube (or 0.25 ounce dried yeast in sachet)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Make a little mountain of flour on a wooden board (or in a bowl). Mix in the salt. Make a hole in the middle.
  2. Mix the baker's yeast with the water and sugar. Mix until completely melted. Leave it for 10 minutes then pour it in the hole in the middle of the flour little by little.
  3. Use your pointing finger to mix the flour with the liquid. Start from the center going outward in a circular motion. Add the extra-virgin olive oil. Add more water if necessary.
  4. Knead until you have a compact ball of dough.
  5. Put the dough in a big bowl and cover it with a cloth. Let it rise between 2 and 4 hours at room temperature. You can also leave it overnight. If you are in a hurry, put it in the oven at 90 degrees F for one hour.
  6. When the dough has risen, divide it into 6 equal parts. It should be elastic.
  7. Sprinkle the wooden board with flour. Flatten the dough (1 of the 6 you divided). You can also work on each dough with your hands by flattening it with your hands and stretching the sides little by little. Make a rectangular shape.
  8. Transfer the flattened pizza dough on a pizza pan with the help of the rolling pin.
  9. Bake at a preheated oven of 395 degrees F for 12 minutes or until cooked through.
  10. Slice to small pieces to prepare for the sandwiches.
