Pizza Base Dough

Pizza Base Dough

Most people I know love pizza, so this is why I share my pizza base dough recipe with you. Pizza once again makes me think about the Italians, maybe for me because of the red tomato base sauce which reminds me of the Italians! Pizza is a popular family feast meal, informal, no fuss and where you see pizza, you see happy people! This is my recipe from chef school, full of stains and marks on the original recipe, but very precious. Most people these days buy the ready-made pizza bases, but making fresh ones from scratch is not that difficult. It is wonderful to feel that elastic soft dough in your hands. If you make the pizza base dough soft enough, it will also roll out a lot easier. It is a fast food form and you can use out all leftover toppings and transform it into a lovely meal. Why not impress your guests with a new skill by blowing their breath away by serving your own homemade pizza. With weddings being so expensive these days, brides to be can also think of a cost-saving alternative and have pizza, salad and wine as the reception food booked at a lovely pizza restaurant or have it delivered to the reception. Pizza has stayed over all these years and I am sure there will many more years to come with pizzas. And pizza dough will never go out of fashion! So spoil your family with your own home-made pizzas! Add a lovely bowl of salad with the Honey Mustard Salad Dressing too.
