CLASSIC WHITE BREAD LOAF

INGREDIENTS

500g Allinson strong white bread flour

7g Allinson easy-bake yeast sachet

1 ½ tsp caster sugar

1 ½ tsp salt

1 tbsp soft butter

300ml/½ pint hand-warm water

#

MIX

Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Using your fingertips rub in the butter until only fine ‘crumbs’ are left. Mix in the water with a cutlery knife.

KNEAD

Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer).

RISE

Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size – about 1 hour depending on how warm your kitchen is.

SHAPE

Knock back the dough by gently kneading just 5 times to get the air out. Mould into a smooth oval and lift into a lightly oiled 900g/2lb loaf tin.

PROVE

Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200C : 180C fan : gas mark 6.

BAKE

Lift the tin onto the middle oven shelf and bake for 30-35 minutes, until you can lift the bread loaf from the tin and when you tap the base it sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack.


PIZZA DOUGH

INGREDIENTS

500g Allinson strong white bread flour

7g Allinson easy-bake yeast sachet

1 teaspoon caster sugar

2 teaspoons salt

300ml/½ pint hand-warm water

50ml olive oil

PLUS

Sauce for spreading over

Your favourite pizza toppings

MIX

Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Mix the water and oil together, then stir in with a cutlery knife.

KNEAD

Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer).

RISE

Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in  size – about 1 hour depending on how warm your kitchen is. Preheat your oven to 240C : 220C fan : gas mark 8.

SHAPE

Divide the dough into 4 pieces – keep others under the tea towel to stop them drying out. Roll a piece of dough to as thin as you can get it on a lightly floured surface. Lift carefully onto a floured baking sheet or pizza stone and finish with your favourite toppings.

BAKE

Bake for 10-15 minutes, until crisp and golden on top.


Too much dough?
This batch of dough is enough for 4 medium-large thin pizzas. It’s easy to halve, or roll out remaining dough and freeze between sheets of baking parchment for an instant supper another time.
