mmmm... love to make pizza. make a simple one with tomatoes, mozzerela, olive oil and basil or add the left overs from your fridge. or.......go out to a nice pizza restaurant where they make them on the traditional way; in a wood oven! photos: mikkel vang

basic recipe pizza dough
make 4 medium pizzas

500 gr. strong white bread flour, preferable 00
1/2 tbsp salt
7 gr. dried yeast
1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
325 ml lukewarm water

combine yeast, olive oil, water and sugar, whisk with a fork to resolve and set aside for a few minutes.
sift  the flour with the salt, make a well in the middle and pour the yeast-mixture in the well.
stir the flour with a fork from the inner edge of the well with a circular movement into the the water-yeast mixture. continue to mix, bringing in all the flour until the dough comes together and becomes to hard to mix with a fork. 
flour your hands and knead the dough on a floured surface for at least 10 minutes until a smooth and soft dough. place the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover with a moist kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour, until doubled in volume.

preheat the oven to 250Âșc 
put the dough on a floured surface and knead for 30 seconds, then divide into 4 balls.
roll each ball out into a circle, about 0,5 cm thick. 
add the topping of your choice, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes until golden and crispy.
