One of the best ways to save money with your Thermomix, is to make your own pizza bases. Not only do they taste great, they’re also really cheap to make!
When I make my pizza dough, I like to place it into the Thermoserver to rise. Just remember to lightly grease the sides, bottom and lid of the Thermoserver with cooking spray so that the dough doesn’t stick. I also like to fill the Thermoserver with boiling water while the dough is kneading in the Thermomix. Then I drain the water out, dry it completely and lightly grease it, before popping the dough ball inside. This makes the Thermoserver nice and warm and allows the pizza dough to rise easily.
This is the perfect Thermomix pizza dough for making delicious takeaway style pizzas at home. Actually, it’s WAY better than any takeaway pizza base you could buy!
So save yourself a few dollars and whip up your own pizza bases! Go on… you’ll love it!
