- 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 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.

- Fold the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently by hand for around five minutes or until smooth.
- Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.
- Divide the dough roughly into equal amounts. Roll out pizza bases for the desired size.

Use a ladle or back of a serving spoon to spread the sauce onto your freshly made dough, ensuring you don’t damage the dough.
Preparing Sushi 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 Mayonnaise. Spread the Mayonnaise 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;
- Sliced Salmon
- Sliced Avocado
Whilst this pizza is excellent on its own, or why not with another style of pizza?
Put the Sushi pizza in oven, and set alarm for ten minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and see how cooked pizza is.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
Tuna are eight different species varying in colour and size. A remarkable and impressive fish, Tuna is a nomadic species, which is found throughout the world’s oceans.
Tuna can be eaten fresh or canned. Tuna loin is commonly eaten raw or seared and lightly seasoned, while canned tuna is precooked for a long time and often prepared heavily dressed.
When making Sushi Pizza, I always recommend that you use what you have available, without spending lots of money. My basic pizza tool list is…
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
Mayonnaise (aka Mayo) typically contains Oil, eggs, and an acid, such as Vinegar or lemon Juice. There are a few healthy elements to Mayo, such as vitamin E, for heart health, and vitamin K, for blood clotting. It can also be made with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Whilst not a typical ingredient, Mayonnaise goes really well with any Pizza that has savory toppings and Tomato sauce base. It’s great on a meatlovers, Pepperoni pizza or four cheese pizza.
These facts will interest you.
We love maths

Pizza making FAQ
Below we’ve compiled the most common pizza making questions and provided expert answers. Are you looking for how to make delicious pizza at home? Please read on!
How to keep pizza from sticking to stone?
The best way to avoid pizza sticking to a pizza stone is to ensure the base has plenty of flour or polenta between the pizza and the stone.
How to preheat oven for pizza?
To preheat an oven before pizza, put it on the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes prior to adding your pizzas.
When making a fruit pizza what can I put on the fruit so it will not turn brown?
You can add lemon juice as an acid on top of fruits to prevent them browning, however I often find the question should be more about when to put the fruit on. A lot of times, you can cook the pizza with all the other toppings, and then add the fruit as soon as you remove it from the oven. This way, the fruit heats quickly from the pizza, but doesn’t get a chance to burn in the oven.
