About Tempting Pizza

This is a quick recipe. Dissolve yeast in slightly warm water. Keep it aside for 5 minutes and stir it time to time. Combine flour, salt, sugar and oil in a bowl and knead it but add water/yeast mixture as well. Start kneading the pizza dough carefully to bring flour into the center of bowl. Kneading should be continuous so that the dough remains smooth. If dough looks dry, add a little more water to give moisture. Similarly, if it is sticky, then add more flour. Knead until it is smooth and elastic.

Roll it into a ball and cover with a damp cloth to avoid moisture escape. Let it rest for about 20 minutes at some warm place, with an appropriate distance from the stove. Beat dough with your palm to expand it and to remove gas bubbles which are formed while fermenting. Roll dough gain into a ball and place it in a greased bowl.
