Basic Pizza Dough.


This recipe I’ve had as a  staple in my pocket for many years.

It also makes some delicious sweet chilli and cheese or pesto and cheese scrolls! 

just saying!! 

What you will need:

2 1/2 – 3 cups All purpose flour

1 Tbsp sugar

1 (1/4 oz) Sachet of yeast – 21g  the rapid rise or active kind.

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 cup warm water (Luke warm!)

2 Tbsp olive oil

In a large bowl combine the 1 cup of flour sugar, yeast and  salt.

Blend well.

Add warm water and oil

Blend and stir for few mins

add enough flour to form a dough remove from the bowl and knead by hand or in your fancy pants kitchen aid mixer for 8-10 mins.

Cover loosely and let prove for 30 mins.

After 30 mins roll out your pizza base to your desired size, and top with your favourite toppings.

If you want to make the scrolls roll the dough out into rectangle size, spread over your basil pesto or sweet chilli sauce, sprinkle with cheese roll up like you would a swiss roll, slice into 2cm wide pieces and place on a greased baking tray.

Bake in a preheated oven to 200’c for 15mins until golden and delicious!


Any questions please reach out, as I’m still figuring out this recipe writing thing! 

love always
