- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Leave sitting for roughly five minutes.
- Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the oil.
- Using dough mixer or hands, gently mix dough until smooth. Place pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place mixture in and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise until the dough doubles in size.
- Pour dough mix out onto a clean, floured surface. Now hand knead gently for another five minutes.
- Divide dough mixture into equal sized balls. Hand stretch or roll out the bases to the expected size.
- Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.

Preparing Double Pepperoni Pizza
Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.
You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.
Then start adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.

The Italian word for Pepperoni is Peperone, which translates to Bell Pepper. The first use of this word can be traced back to the early 20th Century when it was used to refer to a Sausage. In the early 1900s, Italian immigrants started combining their European superior flavors with American ingredients.
In 1919, the first mention of Pepperoni occurred in New York City. It gained popularity and was used as toppings for most Italian pizzerias and delicacies. Pepperoni is widely accepted as an Italian-American food.
When making Double Pepperoni Pizza, I suggest you just use what you have available, without spending any money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
Salami is a cured Sausage made of air dried, fermented meat, usually pork. The word Salami, however, has been around for centuries and derives from the Italian word “salume”, which means all types of salted meat.
Historically, Salami was popular among peasants in Europe, because it could be stored for up to 45 days at room temperature once cut, which helped during difficult times of getting fresh meat.
These are all true, believe me!
Pizza in latin
The first recorded use of the word ‘pizza’ has been found in a 997 AD Latin text from Gaeta, Italy.
Print that pizza
Using NASA funding, a group of scientists developed a 3D pizza printer in 2013. It can cook a pizza in under 70 seconds, complete with the sprayed flavor, aroma and micronutrients.
Record for most pizzas sliced
The most pizzas sliced in three minutes was achieved by Rory Coughlan-Allen (UK) from Wales, UK, sliced 17 pizzas in three minutes on 1 March 2022.

Protein is an essential component of good health, and you should ensure that every meal has a protein source. The average pizza slice has 12 grams of protein, making it a good source for that day.
