Tips For Making Pizza Dough

  • allow adequate time for the pizza dough to rise (see recipe below)
  • ensure your pizza has a warm draught-free place to rise (in a warm ThermoServer is a great option)
  • check that your yeast is in date
  • use Bakers flour or 00 flour if possible
  • pizza bases can be prepped ahead of time, par-baked and then frozen. Allow to defrost at room temperature before adding your toppings and cooking.

Proving Dough

Allowing enough time (and a warm draught-free environment) for your dough to rise is so important.

  1. Thanks for the feedback Elli, we are going back and checking all of our recipes to make sure the weight measurements are included.

      There are some recipes that don’t use yeast (and they use self raising flour instead), but I really find that yeast is the way to go when it comes to pizza dough. If you store it in the fridge, a little container will last ages! xx

    Hi Vee, that’s very strange – we make this recipe on a weekly basis and it’s always perfect. I’m not sure why yours didn’t turn out right?

  4. I just got on to see if ayone else had this problem. It wouldn’t rise and was almost like crumbs after the first knead too. Obviously a prob at my end … obviuosly will need to make more pizzas to test where I went wrong!

  6. When you say plain flour do you mean just plain flour or breadmaking plain flour – in traditional pizza dough recipes they use the latter which has a higher gluten content I think? ie most bread recipes traditionally use breadmaking flour rather than plain flour. Which is available in supermarkets now.

      Hi Ingrid, bakers flour or bread making flour always gives a better result so if you can use that, then do! But if plain flour is all you’ve got in your cupboard, go with that!

  7. Thank you for sharing. I had the same problem so have now added another 1/4 cup of water and used the dough function for longer like you suggested and it seems to have come together. Will see how it goes from here!

  8. I have been using this pizza dough recipe for over and year and it was always good. But since you’ve made the changes to the quantities it’s a no fail dough. So good!! Always comes out great! We love it! Thank you.

  9. I love all of your recipes and this one sounds great but have you tried the 2 ingredient pizza? 1 1/2cups of self raising flour and 1 cup of Greek yogurt. It is fantastic and easy to make. I havent tried it in Thermie, I’m not adventurous so hopefully someone else is :). My partner and friends think it’s the best. I double ingredients and have a thick base. You can also make savoury and sweet scrolls and other yummy things
