    I've found a pizza recipe that is working really well for me which I got from a pizza chef in a restaurant -

    500g "00" flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon brown sugar
    1 teaspoon yeast powder
    large glug of olive oil
    320ml warm water (EDIT!)
    (This is enough dough to make 3 large pizza bases)

    I mix it up with the dough hook attachment to my hand mixer for about 5 mins until thoroughly combined (although was told to do it by hand)

    Leave somewhere warm to rise for an hour or more, knock it back down and then leave in the fridge (as it's much easier to work with once it's cold)

    More water then flour? I've not had loads of success making dough I can handle and mine has loads less water!

    I'm not sure you can use set measures for flour and water.
    Its too changeable.

    I've found that a year of trial and error is the only way to get a feel for it.

    That's less water than flour, 320 ml weighs 320 grams.

    Ah, I see the poster you quoted had made a mistake :D

    my rule of thumb: one glass of water (250ml) mixed with enough flour to give it the right pizza-dough-consistency gives just about enough dough for two baking trays for 2 thin(ish) based pizzas.

    Do you bake them first? My last attempt they were pretty uncooked, despite the toppings starting to burn. This was as thin as I could get them as well.

    Ah. Maybe I need a stone. The oven was stupidly hot.

    How hot is stupidly hot? My oven goes up to gas mark 9 which is about 250 degrees celcius. Commercial pizza ovens cook at around 450 degrees. A stone or steel will help a lot with getting the crust cooked through.

    Read a review and decided against it.

    Apparently they tend to turn up a bit cold. Wetherspoons food is often a bit luke warm :hmm:

    My oven thermometer claims 250, so pretty warm. Just need to keep playing I guess.

    Tbf I didn't know that you could microwave or fry pizza, which I think is how they do everything else.

    Glasgow chip shops do deep fried pizza. Can even be battered. Half pizza supper is common. Supper means comes with chips.

    Maggot MES missing message

    I bought one today. It was ok, but could have done with better quality ingredients tbh.

    Also they don't do a veggie one, so I bought the pepperoni one and took the meat off.
