- 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.

Preparing Tom Yum 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 Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato 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;
- Oyster Mushrooms
Whilst this pizza is perfect as is, or you could make some homemade garlic bread as well?
Put the Tom Yum pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, open the door and check the pizza.
This pizza should take approximately 15 minutes, however allow it to cook to personal taste.
Shrimp are widespread and abundant. There are thousands of species adapted to a wide range of habitats. They can be found feeding near the seafloor on most coasts and estuaries, as well as in lakes and rivers.
Shrimp and prawn are two different types of seafood, belonging to different suborders of Decapoda, although they look quite similar.
When making Tom Yum Pizza, it’s always handy to have the right pizza making tools. Here’s the basic pizza tools that I always suggest…
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.
There are thousands of varieties of Mushrooms, with different colors, shapes, and sizes. All of the edible ones are low in calories and fat, and contain modest amounts of fiber and various nutrients.
Mushrooms have been eaten and used as medicine for thousands of years. Button, Oyster, Portobello, Shiitake and Enoki are among the most popular Mushrooms to eat raw or cooked.
Leftovers after the meal? Here are some tips.
Chill in the fridge
You can keep pizza in plastic wrap or a container for up to 3 days in the fridge.

You can freeze pizza for up to three months, however I’d suggest consuming it within the first few weeks, ideally.

Pizza making FAQ
Want to know how to make fantastic pizza at home? Here are some helpful answers to the most frequently asked questions.
How to defrost pizza dough?
You should defrost frozen pizza dough by leaving it in a warm place for at least a few hours. You can also then use the defrost mode on your microwave to speed up the process a little.
Can I make pizza without making pizza dough?
Absolutely! Just buy a premade base at your shopping centre, or even ask your local pizza store if they will sell you some bases or dough. It’s amazing how many people will willingly do this, to encourage you to start your homemade pizza hobby.
Can I use Baking Powder instead of yeast?
I don’t recommend using baking powder as a replacement at all. Baking powder is a chemical leavener. It isn’t the same as yeast at all. Yeast is an organism that enables pizza dough to develop richer flavors and texture. Types of bread that are made with chemical leaveners are a totally different texture than pizza.
