Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or craft your own homemade pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk yeast and lukewarm water in a jug. Stand for around 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 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.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.

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”.
When making Sushi Pizza, I always recommend that you use whatever kitchen items you have. My basic pizza tools are…
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.
