@Little polka. Can you tell me how you make your pizza base, especially oven temperature, time, what you put the base on to cook, do you preheat the tray on the stove etc? Are you happy with the results?
Wondering if I should share it. After all it might not be up to standards of some people but anyway that pizza makes me more than happy, my scale shows it the day after hehe

Recipe also comes from that favorite blog of mine.

The author suggest it should be for 3 pizzas but I just make a big thick one or two smaller ones.

For that dough you will need:
1 packet of dried yeast (7g) or 25 g of fresh ones
1.5 cups of warm water (not too warm, you might kill the yeast )
3.5 cups of flour
1 tbs of oil
1.5 tsp oof salt

Mix yeast with water and let it rest for 10-15 mins (if you use fresh ones you need to add some flour too). During that time mix the flour, salt, oil, form a crater and pour yeast into it. Form the dough till it will be elastic and lumps free. Place it in the bowl, cover with kitchen cloth and leave it in a warm place for around 1.5 hours (it needs to double the size more or less). I usually place it in the oven set to around 25-30 degrees.
After your dough has grown, punch it with your fist to remove the air from it and roll it into pizza . Remember to leave the edges a bit thicker.

Heat up your oven to 260 degrees. Bake it 15-20 mins but it can be shorter depending on what you like. For me it is usually 15.

I place my pizza shaped dough either in cake form (the non sticky one you can buy in Migros for example) or simply on the oven tray (not pre-heated). I usually cover it before with baking paper and put a lil bit of flour on it to be able to remove it after baking. Then all the suitable stuff goes in like tomato sauce etc. and then spices, for me it is oregano and basil plus some basic ones. I am adding a little bit of cheese at the beginning and then some more in the end of baking.

ps. If the dough is too sticky, you might add some more flour. It will not change much
