Quick & Easy Pizza Dough
Homemade pizza needn’t be difficult! Spend a mere 10 minutes making the dough and then load it with your favourite toppings. It easily beats any pre-made base you can buy in the shops! This recipe is for a large, deep-pan style pizza. If you’d prefer a thin base, either half the required ingredients or split the dough into two and make two pizzas!

  1. Set the oven to 220-230°C.
  2. Add the sugar, yeast and warm water into a bowl and stir well. Let sit for 3-4 minutes or until the mixture looks creamy.
  3. Add the flour, salt, oil and yeast/sugar mixture into another bowl and mix together. Add more water if it’s too dry. Likewise, add more flour if it becomes too wet.
  4. Form into a dough ball and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  5. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  6. On a large oven tray lined with baking paper dusted with cornmeal (optional), transfer the base before topping with your favourite ingredients.
  7. Bake on the top shelf for 15-20 minutes or until crisp and golden.
