How we like our homemade pizza

For best results, we typically leave the pizza dough in a warm location overnight. For really tasty dough, give it 48 hours.

Recipe steps

Homemade pizza – how to do it
  • Preparing the base:
    • Combine warm water, sugar, yeast into a bowl
    • Stir with fork for 30 seconds
    • Wait for the yeast to foam
    • Add olive oil, salt, flour to bowl
    • Mix with wooden spoon until mixture is consistent
    • Add a small amount of olive oil to a large glass bowl and cover its inner surface.
    • Add the dough to the bowl, moving it around so the dough’s surface is covered in a thin layer of oil
    • Cover bowl with cling film
    • Leave for at least one hour, in a warm part of your home, to rise. Ideally overnight
  • Preparing the sauce:
    • De root and peel garlic
    • Combine all sauce ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth
  • Making the pizza
    • Preheat oven to as hot as it’ll go for an hour. Make sure the tray/stone is in the oven
    • Knead the dough until its elastic. It should take 5 mins
    • Split the dough into 4
    • Roll until its as thin as you can get it
    • Spread a pinch of corn flour over the pizza base
    • Carefully remove the tray from the oven and place the base corn flour side down. Place the base corn flour side down on to your pizza peel if you’re using a stone.
    • Put 4 tablespoons of sauce on top. Spread with the back of the spoon
    • Apply a generous layer of Parmesan cheese
    • Dry the mozzarella with a kitchen roll or a tea-towel. Push down gently to remove as much moisture as possible
    • Pull mozzarella apart and place lumps across pizza
    • Sprinkle a pinch of oregano on top
    • Put into oven
    • Take out when cheese starts to brown
