Ultimate pizza dough
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6 small pizzas, 4 large ones
  • 1kg strong white bread flour
  • 700g water
  • 15g salt
  • 2g yeast
  1. Throw all ingredients into a bowl and knead well for around 10 minutes. Use a dough scraper to knead it if you have one. Turn and knead briefly for a couple of minutes every 10 minutes for an hour.
  2. After an hour, stretch dough out with your hands and return back to the bowl. Leave to rise for at least 4-6 hours.
  3. Divide dough into 6 balls to make individual medium base pizzas, or 4 balls to make larger pizzas. Leave shaped balls for another hour to rise.
  4. Wrap any dough balls you aren't using up in oiled clingfilm and freeze. Heat up pizza stone or baking tray for at least 15 minutes in your oven, at the hottest temperature (mine will go to about 220•c).
  5. If you have a pizza peel, dust well with flour and stretch the dough out with your hands to form a rough base. Try to get the dough under 1.5cm thick for a medium base pizza. Top pizza and use peel to slide onto preheated pizza stone. Cook until golden and puffed up, usually about 8 minutes.
