Easy Pizza Dough

Make your own pizza bases using this simple recipe


2 Medium Pizza Bases

Preparation Time:

15 minutes

Cooking Time:

30 minutes


  • 400g Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp dried yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil



  1. Place flour, yeast and salt in a bowl and mix.
  2. Gradually add the water and olive oil then knead by hand for 7-10 minutes until the dough is smooth.
  3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap. Set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour until it doubles in volume.
  4. Knead dough gently for a few minutes to remove some air.
  5. Divide dough in two and roll out pizza bases. Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.



For a delicious crunchy base, sprinkle polenta onto the kitchen bench instead of flour, when rolling out the pizza dough.
