TIPS FOR THE PERFECT PIZZA DOUGH:
1)The dough which you make should be very soft and slightly sticky before the first rise, once it is risen then add more more and knead to a soft dough. This ensures that the pizza base turn crispy and chewy.
2)You can refrigerate the dough for a week. And use whenever you need. But make sure you use a big bowl or container, because they do rise in the fridge.
3)You can use other oil or butter in the dough. But in my opinion olive oil gives the real flavour.
