  • The delicious pizza bottom should be handmade. Although it sounds very difficult, to be honest, the pizza skin is better than bread; Things like that are much simpler. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water, the water temperature is about 30-40 ℃. Due to the different water content of flour, you can first subtract some water, and then increase it according to the dough humidity.

  • Dig a hole in the middle of the flour, pour in the yeast solution, add salt and olive oil, knead it into a shaped dough, knead it by hand for about 20 minutes and cook the machine for about 5 minutes. This is a moist and viscous dough. It doesn't matter. It won't stick after fermentation.

  • Pour a small amount of olive oil into a large basin and stick oil on the bottom and around. Put the kneaded dough into the basin, roll the dough in the basin, make the dough surrounded by oil, cover it with fresh-keeping film, and ferment at room temperature (28 ℃) for 0.5-1 hour until the dough becomes twice as large.
