Pizza Dough

Yes this post is all about Pizza Dough – feel free to pass on by!

Last week I made about 5 pizza’s – They are proving to be quite handy to give to families in need.

A few folks were looking for homemade pizza dough recipes. Here I am listing the 2 I make.

The pizza dough recipe which came with the breadmaker goes like this:

8floz water

2tblsp Olive Oil

1 lb strong white bread flour

1.5 tblsp dried milk powder

1.5 tsp salt

2 tsp sugar

2 tsp Easy Blend Dried Yeast


Place the dough ingredients into the bread pan in the order listed – select programme 10 Pizza Dough!

When finished knock back and roll out unto pizza tray.  Top and cook at 200C for 25-30 minutes.




The basic Pizza Base recipe I used before I inherited the breadmaker is as follows

600gms plain flour

1 x 5 ml baking powder

pinch salt

shake black pepper

shake oregano or mixed herbs

100gms margarine

400-500mls milk


Place all the dry ingredients into a bowl and rub in margarine (this can be done with the dough hook on your mixer).  Mix into an elastic dough with the milk and turn onto a floured board.  Roll into a circle and place on a greased pizza plate or tin.




My pizza topping pre-made recipe goes like this:


1 chopped onion

chopped mushrooms

tin tomatoes

mixed herbs




6 rashers bacon



Melt the butter and fry the chopped bacon and onion, add the mushrooms.  Add the tinned tomatoes, herbs and seasoning.  Cook 3-4 minutes then pour over base, add pineapple and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake in oven at 220C for 30 minutes. 

This pizza filling can be made in advance and frozen, as you can do with both base recipes.

I’ll try and post some pics next time we make this but after making 5 last week that may be a while 😆
