HFG tip

  • Keep it warm. Make sure the kitchen and utensils are warm before you start making dough. Your dough will rise more quickly – about 30 minutes for one quantity of our basic recipe.
  • Lukewarm water added to flour activates yeast, which enables the dough to rise. Be careful – hot water ‘kills’ yeast. ‘Hand-hot’ water is ideal.
  • Invest in a pizza pan if you’re a pizza fan. Forming a standard round pizza will be easier and if you buy one with a perforated disc, air can circulate easily for a crisp crust.
  • Plastic wrap is ideal for covering dough once it’s kneaded. Spray plastic lightly with oil to prevent any sticking to the dough.
  • Always preheat the oven before cooking pizza.
