2 tsp oil
2 tsp fresh yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
lukewarm milk or hot water to knead the dough
Mix together yeast, sugar and warm water. Keep aside for 5 – 10 minutes in a warm place till it froths. Sieve maida. Make a depression in the centre and pour the ready yeast. Knead a soft dough with it using warm milk and water.
Cover the dough and keep it in a warm place for about 1 – 2 hours or till it doubles in size. To knock back the risen dough, turn it onto a board and knead it with your knuckles. This knocks out the air bubbles producing a more even texture.The dough must be firm, elastic and smooth.
When ready to use, make balls out of the dough. Roll into 1/4 inch thickness for pizza base. Place on a tray and cover with a wet muslin cloth. Allow it to rise for some time. Pick each base and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degree centigrade for 10 – 12 mins.
