DIRECTIONS

  • Sprinkle the yeast and sugar into 1/2 a cup of warm water.
  • Pour the flour onto the work surface, and make a crater in the flour.
  • Sprinkle the salt onto the flour.
  • Add the yeast mixture, water and beer into the crater.
  • Mix the flour and liquids with a fork, and then slowly start kneading the dough with your hands until it is smooth and soft.
  • Let it rise for one hour.
  • Knead the dough again. If it is sticky, add a bit more flour.
  • Make approximately 7 balls for 7 pizzas (this depends on the size of your pan).
  • Let it rise for another 45 minutes.
  • While it is rising, pre-heat the oven to 230°C Place the pizza stone inside the oven as well, so that it heats up too.
  • After 45 minutes, roll the dough out into a circle. Tip: use baking paper to transfer it easily to the hot pizza stone.
  • Add sauce and cheese, and bake for 5-7 minutes.
