31⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp sea salt
2½ tbsp olive oil (plus some more to drizzle)
1½ cup water, lukewarm
1/2 tsp maple syrup
1½ tbsp dry active yeast
First of all, preheat the oven to 445°F
Add flour and salt to a bowl
Drizzle olive oil on dry ingredients
In a separate bowl mix water, maple syrup and yeast, set aside
If water yeast mixture is foamy transfer to the other ingredients
With your hands knead until all ingredients are homogeneously combined (about 5 minutes)
The dough texture should be soft, smooth and sticky
In case it is too sticky, add a little more flour until you get the right texture
Cover bowl with a clean kitchen towel
Place the bowl at a warm place and let it grow for 30-45 minutes
Drizzle some olive oil on your hands before you shape the dough
Depending on the crust’s thickness and the toppings the pizza bakes between 20 and 30 minutes or until desired crispness
I drizzle some extra olive on the baking sheet on which I am baking the dough. This step is important being able to handle the dough plus it makes the crust super crispy. Also make sure to put some extra olive oil on top of the unbaked crust. I always continue to add a self seasoned marinara sauce but you can also add a white base instead as you can see on the picture below. Be creative! The most important part about not failing is the olive oil and that your oven has a very high temperature. That’s it! Make the recipe and share your feedback! BONUS: Place the dough in a container which is big enough and allows the dough to grow. Let ferment in the fridge overnight. It will get even more intense flavor. ENJOY!
