Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or hand make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below. Some shops even carry premade pizza dough in balls.
- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let mixture stand for five minutes.
- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.

About BBQ Sauce
Barbecue sauce is a sauce used as a topping, marinade, condiment or basting for Beef, Chicken and pork cooked on a barbecue, or in BBQ style cooking. Most BBQ sauces are vegan, and made with Vinegar, onion powder, Tomato Paste, liquid smoke, mustard and Black Pepper.
It is understood BBQ sauce was invented in the 17th century at a Dominican missionary where they used Pepper and lime Juice to flavor meat on the barbeque.
When making BBQ Beef Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
Glass Measuring Jug
I hate taking chances with portions, so having a quality glass jug with clear to read measurements a vital kitchen tool for me.
OK, not really pizza related, but a good chef apron makes me feel the part when I am making my pizzas. I’d probably wear a chef hat if I got one too!
A pastry brush is vital if you need to ever coat your dough in water, oil, eggs or more. They are cheap to have and very handy to use.
Lime Juice is ideal for seafood, pizza, curries, marinating and drinks. It can be easily made at home, or purchased as a bottle.
Lime Juice is very similar to Lemon Juice, nutritionally, and they also share many of the same potential health benefits. Both Lime and Lemon Juices are acidic and sour, however lemons tend to be sweeter, while limes have a more bitter flavor.

Pizza making FAQ

How much sodium is in a slice of pizza?
Pizza has a significant amount of sodium. A typical slice of pizza can have anywhere from 600 to 1500 mg of sodium per slice. This makes it easy to hit the daily 2,300mg limit that they recommend.
Can I use a mixer to make the dough?
Sure thing! I regularly do. Always use a mixer with a dough hook attachment to make your pizza dough. First, add the dry ingredients and form a well to add the liquid, then always start on the lowest speed first, before increasing the speed and mixing for 5-6 minutes. If your mixer starts sounding like it’s straining, turn it to a slower speed for a longer time.
