It's very rare for a weekend to go by where we don't make our own pizzas. They're so simple and delicious... especially when using our fool-proof Thermomix pizza dough recipe!
What You Need
Making your own homemade pizzas will save you an absolute fortune on takeaway! Here's what you need to make our pizza bases:
- olive oil
- warm water
- raw sugar
- dried instant yeast
- bakers flour or plain flour
- pinch of salt
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.
Allowing enough time (and a warm draught-free environment) for your dough to rise is so important.
