homemade pizza base recipe

00 Flour is in our opinion, the best for making pizza bases with. You could also use strong bread flour too though but 00 flour is far finer. Here’s my recipe I have adapted from a simple BBC recipe as I think the semolina adds a little extra something to it. You can pick up all ingredients in store too!

To make 4 medium sized pizza bases (we all love different toppings in this house):

  • 500g 00 flour (half a bag)
  • Sea Salt
  • 50g Semolina
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 dessert spoon of sugar (I use caster sugar as it’s finer)
  • 7g instant dried yeast (a teaspoon)
  1. Sieve the flour and salt onto a clean work surface, make a well in the middle of your flour mountain
  2. In a jug, mix 300ml of lukewarm water with the sugar and yeast then leave for a few minutes and pour into your flour well
  3. Flour your hands and use your fingers to drag the flour into the middle of the well and start combining with the water/yeast/sugar mix bit by bit until it’s incorporated and then knead until your dough starts to become spongy
  4. Place the dough in a flour dusted bowl and cover with a damp tea towel for an hour in a warm area to let the dough double in size
  5. At this stage, you can keep the dough for cooking at a later date in the fridge or freezer but to make straight away, roll it onto a clean floured surface and start kneading (or punching if you’re stressed) the dough to push the air out of it
  6. Divide the dough into 4 balls or 6 if you prefer smaller pizzas and sprinkle semolina over your dough before rolling into shape and start covering in your marinara and toppings before baking.
  7. Enjoy!
