This is such great pizza dough, a little sticky to work with initially, but once you have your spatula and breadmat doing all the work, no problem. Use lots of flour to help the rolling pin/paper/hands/spatula not stick to the dough, but don’t be tempted to add more flour to the actual dough. It will result in wonderful, textured dough with a nice little crunch that will give you a great start to any pizza, savoury or sweet.
