And let it rise it the bowl by greasing the base. Covering the top and keeping it near some hot place for a couple of hour.

If you are also using active dry yeast so you have to put it in some lukewarm water with some sugar and than dissolve it and leave it for few minutes , let it rise a bit. Active yeast should bubble and foam up once it’s activated, as you can see above.

If you’re using instant yeast, you don’t need to dissolve it or add sugar.

Take your pizza pan grease it with lil oil then pour your dough over it directly , also grease your hands . First make 2 balls of that dough and spread one ball in one pan and other on another pan.

With the help of fork ,Pierce the dough all over . Then it’s time for your favorite toppings.
