Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or hand make your own pizza dough following the simple steps below. Some shops even carry premade pizza dough in balls.
- 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.

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;
- English Sausage
This pizza is very good by itself, yet why not pair it with another pizza as well?
Put the Sausage pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 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.
Originating from the English village of Cheddar, Cheddar cheese is a natural off-white cheese made from Cow’s milk, that is fairly firm in texture. Young cheddar has a milder taste, which becomes sharper the longer it cures before consumption.
Cheddar is probably the most widely popular cheese on the planet, especially in Anglo-Saxon countries. The technique to make Cheddar is known as cheddaring, which is the cheesemaking style that results in a dense, layered texture.
When making Sausage Pizza, I suggest you just use what you have available, without spending any money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
Very similar to a pizza stone, a pizza steel is made of, you guessed it, steel. It’s a great modern method to heat pizza well in a normal oven.
A quality rubber spatula really helps when it comes to scraping bowls and plates, etc.
Having a good dough mixer can make all the difference. You don’t want to be manually kneading forever, do you?
Traditionally, sausages were made from ground beef or pork, with salt, spices and other flavourings. However, now there are chicken and vegetarian and even vegan sausages.
In different countries, Sausages are called different things, such as bratwurst, rolliche, banger, liverwurst, frankfurter, wienerwurst or kielbasa.
Have leftover pizza? Here’s what to do.
Warm in the center of a 450 degree F oven for approximately 6 minutes, on a pizza stone if possible, until heated through. See our article on reheating pizza for more.
You can store leftover pizza in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen as directed above until heated through.

How can I keep bread from becoming soggy when making pizza bread?
If you find that the dough you are producing for pizza bread is too soggy, try reducing the liquid ingredients, or add slightly more flour. You can always save most dough by rolling them out on a well floured bench, and kneading them with new flour being slowly added.
