Pizza Dough Method
Purchase a premade pizza base at your local store, or if you have time, make your own homemade dough following the simple steps below. Some shops even carry pizza dough 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.

Preparing Guacamole Veg Pizza
Start by heating your oven to at least 450 degrees.
Spread out your dough on a well floured surface.
If you have a pizza peel, flour the peel and create your pizza on it.
Start by spreading the sauce all over the base. This pizza uses Guacamole Base. Spread the Guacamole Base Thinly yet evenly, leaving a margin for the crust.
Add the largest toppings first – typically meat or seafood, then the smaller toppings.
Add cheese last, and sprinkle it all over to help keep the toppings in place when it melts.
This pizza has the following toppings:
- Crumbled Feta
- Roast Pumpkin

Whilst this pizza is tasty on its own, or why not try it with other pizza types?
Put the Guacamole Veg pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.

Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
About Black Pepper
Ground, dried, and cooked Peppercorns have been used for hundreds of years, both as traditional medicine and for flavour. Black Pepper is the world’s most traded spice, and is one of the most common Spices added to cuisines around the world.
Peppercorns and the ground Pepper derived from them may be described simply as Pepper, or more precisely as Black Pepper (cooked and dried unripe fruit), Green Pepper (dried unripe fruit), or white Pepper (ripe fruit Seeds).
When making Guacamole Veg Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s what items I always recommend…
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.
Roast pumpkin is an excellent topping choice for any pizza – it is sweet, savoury and wonderfully comforting.
When using roast pumpkin as a topping for your pizza, why not try other toppings such as spinach, feta cheese or mushrooms.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some helpful answers to the most frequently asked questions.
How long do I bake my pizza?
The pizza baking times depend on the oven you are using. An average kitchen oven set to 500F should cook a pizza well in 12 to 15 minutes. A wood-fired oven hotter than 750F will cook a pizza in 2-3 minutes.
Can I use brown sugar when making pizza dough?
Yes, however I personally prefer white sugar. I feel it helps feed the yeast better, however all of pizza dough making is constant experimentation, so try it out with brown sugar and you may be surprised with the results!
How to defrost pizza dough?
You should defrost frozen pizza dough by leaving it in a warm place for at least a few hours. You can also then use the defrost mode on your microwave to speed up the process a little.
