Hi, my name is Chef Mike Nylan. I'm a Tucson Personal Chef, and today I'm going to show you how to make a pizza base using self-rising flour. The ingredients are two ounces of olive oil, two ounces of salt, four ounces of sugar, you need less yeas than other type of pizza doughs because of the self-rising flour, so it's only one ounce of yeast, one cup of water and three cups of flour. We're going to add our water first, then our olive oil, then the salt and sugar, then your flour, then your yeast 'cause you don't want to put your yeast in with the salt because it will kill it. And you want to use lukewarm water 'cause hot water will kill the yeast. And if you use cold water, the dough won't rise at all. We're going to let this mix for three to four minutes until it pulls away from the bottom of the bowl. Now, that it's been mixing for three to four minutes, it's pulling away from the bottom of the bowl very nicely, we're going to turn the machine off, take the dough out and you slip it working with your hands a little bit, get it to the right consistency. Doing this gets the air bubbles out of it when you're baking the pizza and gets any sags out of the bottom of the dough and seams which will make holes when you go to roll your dough out. You keep working it, taking all the seams out. And that's how you make a self-rising pizza dough.
