Press Pizza

Jolene cox
This is my simple Pizza dough made with the contents of the kitchen press. 
It’s such an easy workable dough that once you make it you will never order another pizza again. This is a fantastic recipe to get the kids stuck in with too. 
 You can use an everyday flat baking tray  or the bottom of a 9-inch cake tin, just make sure you line it with greaseproof paper so it doesn’t stick to the tray/ tin 
It’s important to preheat the oven to the 240c gas mark 8  and turn it down to180c, gas mark 4 just before the pizza goes in, that way the dough will cook really well (think how hot a pizza oven is)  
This dough will make Two 9 inch tin pizzas or one large baking tray
