Homemade Pizza Dough

Prep Time: 2 hours                  Yields: 4 20cm pizza’s

Once prepared the dough will need to sit for +-1 hour.

We like to throw in a splash of flaxseed powder for extra firbre and omega-3. This recipe is still perfect if you prefer to leave it out.



  • Combine the water and yeast in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes or until foamy.
  • Combine the flour and salt in a larger mixing bowl and add the water and yeast.
  • Using a round-bladed knife or butter knife, mix together using cutting motions. Once the mixture has combined, add olive oil and use your hands to knead the dough together in the bowl.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  • Lightly brush a bowl with oil and place dough inside. Cover the bowl with a clean wet cloth and set aside in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.
  • Dust work surface with flour and knead dough. Form into a long cylinder and divide into 4 equal pieces.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll each piece into 20cm discs.

*Tip: For perfectly round bases use a round plate as a stencil to cut out the bases.
