Pizza Dough

Pizza dough is a type of leavened bread dough that is stretched or rolled out and topped with tomato sauce and cheese and other ingredients such as meats, vegetables, and seasonings.

The word “pizza” is believed to have originated in Italy and come from the Latin word “pizza” which means “pie”.

The main ingredients in pizza dough are flour, water, yeast, and salt.

Pizza dough is made from a combination of dry ingredients that are mixed with water. The water and the dry ingredients are then kneaded together in a bowl until the dough comes together in a ball.

In addition to the main ingredients, pizza dough can be flavored with garlic, basil, oregano, or other herbs and spices.

The dough is then placed on a flat surface and rolled out to form a flat circle. The round dough is then transferred to a pizza pan and topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and any other desired toppings.
