Easy Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

Who loves pizza?!

Making your own pizza at home is the best.  Don’t get me wrong, we love eating out, but it’s the satisfaction of making your own pizza dough and adding any toppings you fancy and saying …yep, I made that!  And doesn’t it look good.

Freshly made pizza

Here we’ll show you how easy it is to make your own pizza dough.  We taken quite a while to perfect this recipe (probably the past six months I would say) so you can enjoy it at home too.  We’ve tested this recipe out numerous times and have munched our way through many tried and tested pizza bases till we perfected this one.  All you need is literally five ingredients.  For the flour, we use a strong Grade 00 which is usually used for making pasta.

Sifted flour, salt and yeast mixed thoroughly in a mixing bowl

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and then mix thoroughly with the salt. Once done add the yeast and again mix thoroughly (you add the yeast last so the salt doesn’t kill it).  If like us you’re using an electric mixer, then use the dough hook attachment at a low speed, to stir in the oil and cold water.  The dough hook will easily mix all the ingredients in the bowl and work it into a smooth sticky dough. 

It’s a good idea to work the dough for around 7-8 minutes, until everything is mixed thoroughly with no lumpy bits and looks nice and sticky. You know it’s ready when the dough clears the sides of the bowl but is sticky on the bottom.

Tip:  If the dough is still sticking to the sides of the bowl, then add a bit more flour at a time until the dough comes away from the side of the bowl.

Dough has come away from the sides of the bowl but the base is still sticky

You can do everything in a mixing bowl by hand (we used to but buying a kitchen aid has made it so much easier). In the hand mixing bowl be sure that the dough is nice and sticky when you finish.  With one hand move the dough in a clockwise motion to make sure all the ingredients are incorporated.

Tip:  Have a bowl of water nearby to wet your hand when working with the dough.

You should have a sticky, stretchy looking dough ready for it to be cut. Sprinkle some flour onto your work surface and place the dough onto it.  Shape the dough into one long piece (like a sausage shape) ready for it to be cut.

Pizza dough rolled out into a sausage shape

Now with this recipe we make 6 portions for a super thin pizza base to fit a 14 inch pizza stone (judge accordingly for your size and thickness when cutting or increase the quantities). To cut the dough into 6 equal pieces, use a stainless steel dough scraper – you should get a nice clean cut each time.  If the dough sticks to the dough scraper, then dip the scraper into a bowl of water.

Pizza dough rolled into a ball and can be placed in the freezer

Take each dough piece and roll them into a ball and leave on the work top to rest.   What’s great about this recipe is that you can save the pizza dough for another time.  Just put some olive oil on your hands roll the dough balls until covered then pop into separate freezer bags and put into the freezer.  Remember to squeeze all the air out of the bag before sealing it.  You can freeze the dough for up to 3 months.  Now the dough is ready to be shaped for your pizza base.

If you’re using the pizza dough at a later date, take the frozen pizza dough ball out of the freezer the night before and place in the fridge to thaw out. Take the dough ball out of the fridge about one hour before creating your own pizza

      Definitely agree… We’ll be posting how to use the dough with our own pizza recipe in an upcoming post – so stay tunes!

    That looks simple to do. Think I need a dough scraper though. Not come across one of those before.

      You really only need a dough scraper if you make your dough by hand… I use to but now use it just for cutting the dough but you could just use a knife instead…

    This looks so easy! I have a K mix with a similar attachment, I’ll have to try it now I know it’s so easy to make 🙂

      As long as you use a dough hook with your machine you’ll be fine. Hope you enjoy.

    I never knew making pizza dough was so easy, I’m so inspired to try it now! I should make use of that kitchenaid mixer I have anyways… Also that pizza photo you have looks amazing, I think I’ll need a recipe of that pizza, specially, with those same toppings, haha. Yummy!

      It is definitely so much easier using a kitchen aid instead of kneading the dough by hand… I’ll be posting details of our homemade pizza later on so keep your eye out for it 😉

    You make it look so easy!

      The kitchen aid makes it super easy compared to me doing by hand as I used to.. But only having 5 ingredients makes it really simple. Thanks for the comment…
