FOR THE PIZZA DOUGH
Start by making the pizza dough.
Warm the water in the microwave or kettle. It should not be boiling, just lukewarm. Add in the oil and mix
In a large bowl, sift in the all purpose / cake flour. Add in the instant / fast acting yeast, sugar and salt and stir to combine.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the warm water and oil mixture.
Using a spoon or your hands, just mix together, to form a soft dough. Do not knead the dough, just gather it together until it is well combined and soft.
Leave covered to rest for 10 minutes. During this time, I usually prepare the toppings and sauce for the pizza muffins. You can either use bottled pizza sauce, make your own, or try out my favorite pizza sauce recipe.
Grease the muffin tin with a little butter.
After 10 minutes, roll out your pizza dough to about 5mm thick. Using a 3 ½ inch / 10cm cutter, cut 12 rounds from dough. Line each mold of the greased pan with dough rounds, pushing into pan to come 3/4 up side of each mold.
