Pizza Dough Method
You can purchase a premade pizza base at your local shop or make your own dough following the simple steps below.
- 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.

Ham is one of the oldest meats used by humans, and can be found in cuisines in almost every country in the world. Ham is pork from a leg cut that has been preserved by dry or wet curing, with or without smoking.
Smoked hams will lose about 25 per cent of their weight during the smoking process. Weird fact: Dwight Kalb, an artist from Chicago, once made a statue of Madonna using 180 pounds of ham.
When making Mimosa Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
A pizza stone is a great way to up your pizza game at home. Read more about cooking with a Pizza Stone.
Leftovers need to go somewhere, and I hate using lots of plastic wrap or alfoil. I prefer good air tight clear containers for my fridge.
Dough storage containers must be of high quality and airtight.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to make great pizza at home? Here are some expert answers to some of the most Frequently asked questions.
Can I use ciabatta bread for making pizza?
Yes! Breads are great to make pizza on, as it is quicker than making your own dough from scratch. Try my favourite, which is flat bread. It gets very crispy though, so don’t cook it for long. Otherwise, ciabatta or italian breads are also good alternatives if you are short on time.
Can I freeze pizza dough?
You sure can! Make a batch of homemade pizza dough, make it into balls, then put each ball into a zip-top freezer bag or vacuum seal bag. Write the date on the bag, and then you can freeze your pizza dough for up to 3 months.
How do I use a pizza peel?
As soon as your dough is topped, immediately slide it onto your freshly floured pizza peel on a 15-30 degree angle, then open your oven and shimmy it onto the super-hot stone or wood fired oven base, using quick back and forth motions.
