I usually make pizza dough in my bread machine using strong white bread flour.

I only have strong brown bread flour in the cupboard.

Can I use this instead?

Thanks !!!

Can you mix it with normal white flour? Last time I made pizza dough I mixed 2 dl strong brown with 4 dl white self raising and 4 dl strong white..... It worked well.

I often mix wholemeal and white, its actually nicer.

We make it with normal white flour, as find it easier to roll out if it's not too stretchy.

I'll have a go at mixing it

Cornflakegirl- is it still light with only self raising ?

you will still need yeast

The best way to cook is just to give it a go, sometimes things work out for me and sometimes (rarely) grin they don't. Have made some interesting discoveries that way.

We just use plain, not self-raising (although obv still use yeast as Quint says). Then roll really thin like usual, and they're lovely and light and crisp.

Agree Bluesky but DS has a friend coming after school and I promised pizza

Usually my own DC eat what I've, ahem, cooked for them. I'm not quite ready to inflict a 'creation' on another persons child grin

I've done 1/3 bread flour 2/3 flour all the other ingredients as usual

Fingers crossed and I'll see how badly I've cocked it up in about 40 mins

Back to work -MNetting- thanks again smile
