Best Basic Pizza Dough

Make Delicious Home Made Crispy Pizzas

David's Great Pizzas It costs so little to make this basic pizza dough.
One recipe will make four 12"/30cm. light and crispy Pizzas or two hearty deep pan Pizzas.
Choose any toppings you like for a tasty treat. We've invented one that we really love - specially made in a wood burning oven.
The toppings include: chorizo, mushrooms, our own homemade tomato sauce, capers, buffalo mozzarella and flaked chillis. We call it the "Cutting Edge".

Experiment with your own ingredients until you get the Perfect Pizza.
