  • Makes 6 - 8 bases (depending on size and thickness)
  • Easy
  • 1 hour


  • 2 x 10 g packets yeast
  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 T sugar
  • 840 g flour
  • 2 t salt

Cooking Instructions

Mix the yeast with lukewarm water and sugar. Set aside for a few minutes.

Place flour and salt in a large bowl or on a clean surface. Make a well in the middle and pour in the yeast mixture. Using a fork or blunt knife, slowly stir the liquid into the flour to make a dough. As it comes together, knead for 10 minutes, or until smooth and springy.

Cover and set aside until doubled in size. Tear off balls, arrange on a tray and allow to rise again until ready to bake.

This dough can be used as a thick, foccacia-style base or for thin pizza bases.

For thick bases, pull out the dough balls to make rough oval shapes, or roll out to make a thin pizza base.

Add the toppings of your choice (browse pizza topping ideas here).

Place on a lightly floured baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes, or until light golden.
