Jamie Oliver’s 3-ingredient pizza dough: the prep
- Place the flour in a bowl with a generous pinch of salt and the water. Knead the dough well until it becomes elastic.
- Knead the dough from the bowl next to it and on a floured work surface again vigorously for several minutes. Then shape into a ball.
- Fry the dough in a hot pan. To do this, heat a pan, place the dough in it and gently pull it to the edge with your fingers.
- Cover the pizza base with sauce and desired topping while still in the pan, sprinkle with cheese and bake at medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
Proper flour for pizza dough
Gluten plays an important role for an airy pizza dough. This makes the dough elastic. Italian wheat flour type 00 is therefore particularly suitable for a pizza base. Special pizza flour is already available in well-stocked supermarkets. The conventional wheat flour type 405 can also be used for the preparation.
