Makes 2 medium pizza bases

For dough:

  • 2 cups strong white bread flour (or 1.5 cups self raising flour & half cup plain flour)
  • quarter teaspoon of yeast
  • quarter teaspoon of salt
  • 3/4 of a cup of water
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil

For pizza sauce:

  • 200g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • quarter teaspoon dried oregano
  • quarter teaspoon dried thyme
  • quarter teaspoon dried basil
  • pinch garlic granules
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Starting with the dough, mix flour, yeast and salt together in a bowl. Add water and begin mixing. Add oil, one tablespoon at a time and mixing through until dough is at the right consistency (should come together and not be too sticky).
  2. Place dough in a warm area, cover with cloth or plastic and leave to rise for about 1 hour. Once risen, knead on floured surface for a couple of minutes, and separate into two balls. Leave to rise for another hour.
  3. When ready, flatten dough out into desired shape and place onto flat trays. Set aside to rest for approximately 20 minutes while preparing sauce and toppings.
  4. For the sauce, put all ingredients together into blender or use a stick blender to combine until smooth. When ready, spread sauce over pizza dough base and top with desired toppings.
