- Using your hands or a mixer, mix the dough until smooth. Pour dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
- Place dough into lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Sit in a warm place for roughly 30 minutes to an hour, to rise until it doubles in size.
- Fold the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently by hand for around five minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough roughly into equal amounts. Roll out pizza bases for the desired size.
- Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.

When making Romeu e Julieta Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
Dough Proofing Box
If you make a lot of dough through the year, you’ll find owning a pizza dough proofing box very useful.
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!
If you’re looking for a topping that will add an extra bit of sweetness to your pizza, why not try guava marmalade? This tropical fruit is used in various dishes throughout the world, and it adds just enough tartness and sweetness to make any pizza special.
Guavas are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins A & C, as well as dietary fiber which can help keep you feeling full longer. The marmalade itself is made by boiling down the juice of guavas until it thickens into a spreadable consistency.
