Pizza Dough Method
You purchase a premade pizza base at your local store, or if you have time, make your own homemade dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Stand for around five minutes.
- Add the salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow centre in the flour. Slowly pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using your hands or spatula, gently combine the flour mixture until smooth. Then turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and hand knead for roughly five minutes.
- Place the dough mixture in to an oiled bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place until the dough has at least risen to double in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Hand knead gently for five minutes until reasonably smooth.
- Sprinkle some flour on work surface before rolling out dough to prevent any sticking.
- Divide dough mix into equal amounts, now roll out the bases to the desired size.

- Your sauce is now ready to use or keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Preparing Sausage Pizza
Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.
You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.
Then start 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.
Toppings to put on this pizza are;
- Smoked Sausage

Ancient Egyptians saw onions as a symbol of eternal life because of the circular layers. Farmed and eaten for at least 5,000 years, Onions have been used as medicine, food and even helped in Egyptian mummification.
The three most common onion colors are white, red and yellow. Onions are easy to grow, store and are cheap and full of flavour, making them very popular across the world. China consumes nearly 25% of the world’s onions every year.

Pizza making FAQ
Below we’ve compiled the most common pizza making questions and provided expert answers. Are you looking for how to make awesome pizza at home? Please read on!
What temperature should I use for baking pizza?
If you’re using a baking pan or pizza pan, preheat your oven pretty much as high as it can go. I’m talking about 500°F (260°C) or higher. If you’re using a pizza stone, don’t forget to preheat that as well. Always let it heat up for at least 30 minutes, before adding your first pizzas.
How long does it take to digest pizza?
It typically takes around 6-8 hours for pizza to digest in your stomach. The higher the fat content, the longer food takes to digest. Pizza has carbs in the sauce, crust and vegetable toppings, plus high fat and protein in any meat and cheese.
Why pineapple belongs on pizza?
Pineapple belongs on pizza, in my personal opinion. It’s a weird debate which has envoloped the world. Each person has their own opinion. If you like it, eat it, if not, then don’t. Easy!
