Ingredients for 2 x 400 g pizzas
500 g plain flour
275 g water at room temperature
12 g brewer's yeast
12 g salt
25 g extra virgin olive oil
Total weight: 800 g
For the topping:
200 g mozzarella for pizza
100 g tomato sauce for pizza
Salt as required
Fresh basil as required
Extra virgin olive oil as required
Place the flour in a mound, make a well in the centre and add the water with the dissolved brewer's yeast and the sugar, begin working to a dough and half way through, add the oil and salt.
Leave the dough to rest for around 30 minutes, then divide it into two identical sized balls and knead them both until smooth.
Place the two balls of dough in the two trays supplied with the oven, brush the dough with a little oil and cover with cling film, so it does not dry out.
Select the dough resting programme and place in the oven to rise for around 2 hours.
After that, flatten the dough out into a circle as they do in pizzerias and return it to the tray, lined with baking paper. Top with tomato sauce seasoned with oil, salt, oregano and basil.
Add the mozzarella and other ingredients of your choice, with exaggerating with the topping.
Select the "thin-crust pizza" automatic recipe from the oven menu, place in the oven and switch on.
There is no need to preheat the oven.
Chef's top tips
If you have a planetary mixer, mix all the ingredients together except for the salt and oil, which should only be added when the dough is almost ready, so that the salt does not prevent the yeast from working and the pizza will rise properly.
Do not exaggerate with the topping, otherwise the pizza will struggle to cook properly.
