Basic Yeast Dough

There was a time when yeast doughs scared the hell our of me and I am sure that there are many of you out there who once were or still are afraid of working with doughs that have yeast.

Well as I have mentioned in one of my very early posts, I realised that many recipes look terrifying because it sounds or seems difficult until you actually give it a try!

This recipe is so versatile. It can be used for so many different things. Everyone’s going to think that you’re a pro!

You could make pizza, mini pizzas, subs, meat buns, pin wheels, etc.

5 cups flour 
1 pkg yeast 
1/2 egg
2 tblsp sugar 
1 tsp salt
Mix: 3/4 cup oil with 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups warm water/milk mixture. Use half water half milk.

Mix rest of ingredients, knead and leave to rise. Then punch down and shape into meat buns, mini pizzas or subs. Bake at 180 degrees for 5 minutes.

Meat buns: take a ball of dough flatten in your palm put filling and close. Leave on tray to rise, brush with egg, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake.

Mini pizzas: make into sizes you want leave on tray to rise then bake. When cold add filling, top with cheese and freeze. If u making a dry filling put sauce on base.

Subs: make mini rolls, leave to rise then bake. When cold slit and fill. Top with cheese and peppers.

Pin wheels: roll out the dough, add your choice of filling and roll like a swissroll. Slice, put onto a baking tray. Leave to rise then bake.

Whatever you make from this you can freeze. When you want to eat it, just heat and eat!
