BBQ Pizzas

Yesterday we had our friends over for lunch. We had BBQ pizza. I made a basic pizza dough then let everyone make their own pizzas. The kids had a lot of fun trying out new combinations. We then put the pizzas onto a hot pizza stone in the BBQ and cooked for 7 minutes each with the lid of the BBQ down. All of the pizzas tasted great and we had such a lovely day sitting outside in the warm sunshine.

Garlic and Parmesan cheese for starters.

Basic Pizza Dough
1 tablespoon dry yeast
1 teaspoon caster sugar 
1 cup (250ml) lukewarm water
21/2 cups (375g) 00 flour or bread and pizza flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Place the yeast, sugar and water in a bowl and mix, set aside for 5 minutes in a warm place or until bubble appear on the surface.
Place flour, salt and olive oil in a bowl, make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and mix all together. 
Kneed dough on a lightly floured surface for 3-5 minutes .
 Divide the dough into equal parts.
Place on a lightly floured tray under a clean damp cloth for 30 minutes till they have doubled in size.
Press balls into rounds and roll out on a lightly floured surface.
