Tasty Tuesday: Easy Pizza Dough Recipe

Easy Pizza Dough Recipe.jpg

Pizza Fridays are a tradition in my house. There’s nothing like the smell of a warm pizza baking in the oven. My family chip in by deciding which toppings to use and really get involved in the making and eating part too. This is perfect to share with loved ones or a special person for date night.

Here’s a simple pizza dough recipe that my Mom would make on pizza night and I hope you enjoy it as well.


500g Flour

½ t Salt

1 T Sugar

½ Packet of instant dry yeast (about 8 ml)

2 T Oil

125 ml lukewarm water


  1. Sift flour and add salt, sugar and yeast.
  2. Add the oil to the dry ingredients.
  3. Slowly add the lukewarm water, adding only as much as you need to make a mixture that isn’t too wet.
  4. Knead the dough for 5 – 10 minutes until it feels elastic.
  5. Gather and ball up the dough and place into an oiled bowl.
  6. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and allow it to rise to double the size in a warm place for about 45 – 60 minutes.
  7. Knock down the dough and roll into shape on a floured surface.

  1. This sounds pretty easy Lindsay. It’s been a while since I’ve made pizzas from scratch, but it’s definitely worthwhile isn’t it. I love a variety of toppings, salami, mushrooms, olives, pesto, spinach, sun dried tomatoes … hmm, think I’ve just created my own pizza! 🙂

  2. Thanks Lindsay, I am definitely going to make this. I used to make my own pizza dough from scratch, but honestly I have become so lazy lately and either just get already made dough and go from there. Thanks for reminding me that this is really ‘the way to go’ for a decent pizza. As for toppings, I am a huge fan of loads of cheese, loads of bacon, and some rainbow peppers 🙂 I know it may sound boring, but I am a cheese and bacon girl 🙂
    Have a beautiful day 🙂
