Quick pizza dough recipe

Read more posts tagged with: Pizza Dough (6)

Sometimes the need for a pizza just comes out of nowhere and you need to whip up a dough at short notice. All is not lost, the dough will not have such a complex flavour as one that has rested overnight, but you can still make a perfectly serviceable dough and go from mixing it to baking it in an hour.

Ingredients (makes 2 pizzas)

  • 300gm White flour (1.5 cups)
  • 200ml Water (4/5 of a cup)
  • 6g Sea salt (1 heaped tsp)
  • 8g Instant dried yeast (2 heaped tsp)
  • 8g Sugar (2 tsp)
  • 15ml Olive oil (1 tbsp)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir all of the dry ingredients together.
  2. Add the water and stir briefly.
  3. Add the oil and continue to stir until the ingredients are well mixed.
  4. Cover the bowl and allow to rest for 10 minutes
  5. Turn out the dough onto a floured work surface. Knead the dough for around 5 minutes. As you knead, you will notice the dough losing its stickiness and becoming smooth and supple.
  6. Separate the dough into two equal parts and shape into dough balls. Sprinkle with flour and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for one hour.
  7. The dough is now ready to be used. Shape each ball into a pizza base, place on a floured peel, add toppings according to your favourite recipe and cook your pizza on a preheated pizza stone!

NOTE: Because the dough has not had much time to relax since being kneaded, these bases might spring back a bit when being shaped. If this happens, shape the base half way, then let it rest for 5 minutes before finishing.
