- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Leave sitting for roughly 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 dough mixer or hands, gently mix dough until smooth. Place pizza dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place mixture in and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise until the dough doubles in size.
- Pour dough mix out onto a clean, floured surface. Now hand knead gently for another five minutes.
- Divide dough mixture into equal sized balls. Hand stretch or roll out the bases to the expected size.
- Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.

Perfect White Pizza Sauce Method
You can make this delicious pizza sauce following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a pizza sauce at your local store.
- Using a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once melted, whisk in the flour. Continue whisking for 1-2 minutes.
- Add milk slowly, whisking constantly until smooth, thickened, and bubbly.
- Add the garlic, salt and pepper whilst whisking.
- Add parmesan, then whisk for another 30 sec. Remove from heat and continue whisking until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Set aside to cool.
- Do not boil after adding cheese. Once cool, cover and refrigerate. Can be used for up to 5 days.
If your sauce is too thick and not spreading easily, a splash of olive oil or water can help to get the right consistency.
Preparing Salmon Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for White Sauce. Spread the White Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Lime Juice
Whilst this pizza is awesome as is, or you could pair it with another pizza as well?
Put the Salmon pizza in the middle of your oven (on a stone if you have one) and set timer for 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
About Lime Juice
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.
When making Salmon 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…
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.
One of the most popular types of fish in the world, Salmon is extremely versatile and used in just about every kind of dish that fish is found in. Salmon is a popular fish with high levels of protein, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids in particular make Salmon one of the healthiest seafoods.
The word “Salmon” comes from the Latin salmo, which in turn might have originated from salire, meaning “to leap”.
