Base before baking
  1. Mix water, sugar, salt and dry yeast very well and keep aside for 10-15 minutes. After 15 minutes you can see some bubbles on top of that. It means yeast is activated and it is ready to use.
  2. Mix wheat flour, all purpose flour and baking powder together. Now slowly add yeast mixture and make a soft dough. Cover the dough and keep aside until the dough rises to almost double.
  3. Once dough is risen to double, need it for 4-5 seconds. If you want family size pizza, divide the dough in 3 parts. Otherwise divide the dough in 5 parts. 
  4. Roll each part of dough with the help of rolling pin in circle shape. Its your choice to make it thin crust or not. Then, with the help of knife or fork make some marks on it so that it will not puff up.
  5. Pre-heat the oven at 400 F/200 C. Bake them for about 5 minutes. You can see some brown marks on both sides. It means they are cooked. If you want to store them for later use do not bake them completely. Just half bake them and refrigerate it covering them in aluminum foil. They are good to be used within 12-15 days.
