How to Make an Italian Pizza: The Simple, Step-by-Step Guide

How to Make an Italian Pizza: The Simple, Step-by-Step Guide | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

Want to know how to make a real Italian pizza? The most important part is getting the Italian pizza dough right! More than just the base of the pizza, the dough is what gives the pizza its texture, holds together the flavors, and—if done right—can make you feel like you’ve been transported right back to Italy.

Ingredients (makes dough for 4 pizzas, each one about 12 inches in diameter):

  • 600 mL of warm water
  • 7 cups (1kg) flour, type “00″*
  • 2.25 teaspoons (25 grams) yeast
  • 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

*A note on the flour: In Italy, “00″, or “doppio zero,” flour is the most highly-refined and finest-ground flour available. Not available where you are (or too expensive?). An all-purpose flour should work just as well!
