Ingredients to make Pizza Dough:
All purpose flour/Maida – 1 cup
Active dry yeast – 1 tsp
Castor Sugar – 1/2 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Cooking oil – 1 tbsp ( I used Oilve oil )
Water – 1/3 cup
1) Combine the water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until foamy.
2) Take a bowl and add flour, salt and mix it well.
3) make a well and add oil and foamy water and slowly start mixing to make a dough.
4) Close the dough with a soft muslin cloth or cling wrap and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
5) The dough will double in size. Now punch the dough to remove the air and knead it well.
6) Flatten it to a round shape ( I just greased my hands and flattened it ). Do not use a rolling pin to flatten the dough.
Grease the baking tray and place the flattened dough on it and follow the given below steps to add toppings and seasoning.

Tips: You can add seasoning of your choice. If you feel dough is very hard add little more warm water but do not make it too sticky or too hard. It needs to be soft and firm dough.
