Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or craft your own homemade pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Stand for around five minutes.
- Add flour and salt in a large bowl. Create a well in the centre of the flour. Pour in the liquid yeast mixture and the 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.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.

Put the Kebab pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and check the pizza.
This pizza should take approximately 15 minutes, however allow it to cook to personal taste.
The word Döner is Turkish for “rotate”, and Kebab broadly refers to meat cooked on skewers over a fire. A Doner kebab is a Turkish name for meat cooked on a vertical spit or rotisserie.
Doner are often a healthier fast food choice, because doner meat isn’t deeply fried, unlike other street foods.
When making Kebab Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have already, and avoid spending a ton of money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
Sometimes called a paddle or shovel, a pizza peel is a vital tool for those who make pizza regularly.
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
The pizza topping that comes to mind when you think of pizza is most likely pepperoni. But have you ever thought of trying green pepperoni? Green pepperoni may sound strange, but it offers a unique flavor to your favorite pizzas and is quickly becoming popular.
The taste of green pepperoni brings in a mild heat which compliments traditional toppings like cheese and mushrooms perfectly. Plus, the bright green color can make pizzas look more vibrant and appetizing!

Pizza making FAQ
Planning to make fantastic pizzas at home? Here are some expert answers to some of the most common pizza making questions.
Can I use Baking Powder instead of yeast?
I don’t recommend using baking powder as a replacement at all. Baking powder is a chemical leavener. It isn’t the same as yeast at all. Yeast is an organism that enables pizza dough to develop richer flavors and texture. Types of bread that are made with chemical leaveners are a totally different texture than pizza.
Can I use durum wheat flour for pizza dough?
It depends; if it’s fine enough, yes. Durum wheat is a variety that is usually ground down to make semolina, which is used to make pasta. If it is ground into a finer flour, it can be used to make pizza dough and breads.
Should I double every ingredient when making pizza dough?
Not typically, no. If a pizza recipe states that, it may be inferring that to get twice the dough you need twice the ingredients. See our baker’s percentage guide on why we should use baker’s percent rather than fixed ingredient amounts. It makes a lot of sense!
