Pizza Dough

Who doesn’t like pizza…. not us, we love it!!.

You can make these bases and freeze them uncooked. Just add toppings prior to cooking. Or you can freeze your pizza once it is cooked. Cut up into slices so you only grab out what you need. Perfect for school lunches.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

Enjoy! Jo and Tracey x

Instructions

Thermal Cooking Method

  1. Place yeast and water into your mixing jug and heat for 1 min/37C/speed 2
  2. Add all other ingredients and knead for 5 mins
  3. Tip out into a lightly floured bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Sit somewhere warm and allow to prove for at least 15-25 mins or until doubled in size
  4. Pre-heat oven to 220°C or turn on your pizza oven
  5. Flatten dough into a round shape and cover with toppings of your choice
  6. Place onto a lined baking tray or into your pizza oven and cook until done. Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of dough and toppings. But as a guide in the oven it will take about 20-30 mins
  7. Tip - You can turn this dough into 6 mini pizza's or 3 medium or leave as one large pizza. This is also a great recipe to double

Traditional Cooking Method

  1. Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl. Stir gently and set aside for a few minutes
  2. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Mix until well combined, this is easiest using a blunt knife. Then use your hands to bring the dough together to form a ball
  3. Knead for at least 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic
  4. Tip out into a lightly floured bowl and cover with a clean tea towel. Sit somewhere warm and allow to prove for at least 15-25 mins or until doubled in size
  5. Pre-heat oven to 220C or turn on your pizza oven
  6. Flatten dough into a round shape and cover with toppings of your choice
  7. Place onto a lined baking tray or into your pizza oven and cook until done. Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of dough and toppings. But as a guide in the oven it will take about 20-30 mins

    Love this pizza dough, much better to know what is in/on your pizza than buying from a chain store.

    Is there anything you can substitute yeast for which still allows the base to rise nicely?
