Ingredients
BASE
500 g Laucke Pizza & Focaccia Mix 1 pkt
4 g Yeast 1⅓ tsp
5 ml Olive Oil 1 tsp
300 ml Water 1⅖ cups
TOPPING
150 g Tomato Passata (Tomato Puree) ½ cup
2 each Tomatoes, fresh 2 each
1 clove Garlic, Fresh and crushed 1 clove
1.5 g Salt ¼ tsp
1 g Sugar ¼ tsp
¼ g Oregano ¼ tsp
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil or Fresh Rocket Leaves

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 240°C or 220°C for Fan Forced.

  2. Use you bread machine or a suitable mixer to mix and knead the dough, or alternatively knead by hand.

  3. Divide the dough to obtain an appropriate size, and rest for 10 minutes. Roll out the dough to the shape and thickness desired. Place on a tray, and cover the dough to prevent skinning. Allow 30 minutes in a warm place for proofing. Pizza dough will only rise slightly.

  4. Spread the proofed dough piece with tomato puree, and top with your favourite toppings. Finish the pizza with grated cheese and perhaps an extra drizzle of olive oil.

  5. Bake at 240°C at the top of a Conventional oven or 220°C for Fan Forced, until baked to your requirement. This dough will make two large medium thickness pizza bases.

Helpful Hints

  • If the dough is too sticky or if having difficulty rolling out the dough, rest in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • For Pizza style bread, without additional toppings dock/prick the base, with a fork to minimise rising.
