- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let the mixture stand for approx. five minutes.
- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and 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.

Leftovers need to go somewhere, and I hate using lots of plastic wrap or alfoil. I prefer good air tight clear containers for my fridge.
Black Tiger Prawns
Black tiger prawns are an excellent topping for pizzas, providing a unique and delicious seafood flavor. These large, succulent prawns have a mild taste that is enhanced by bold seasonings like garlic and oregano.
Not only do black tiger prawns provide great flavor and texture to pizzas, but also they are very healthy. They contain high levels of proteins and minerals such as selenium, phosphorous, zinc, magnesium and iron; making them an ideal choice for health-conscious eaters.
