The best homemade pizza dough

15th August 2014


A few nights ago we made our own pizzas. By “we” I of course mean “Tyrone”. He does most of the cooking in our flat because he’s a lot better at it than me.

The dough is based on a Jamie Oliver recipe. I can honestly say that it makes the most delicious pizza bases. It really does rival the likes of Domino’s (and that’s saying something!).

The recipe makes enough dough for 6-8 pizzas. Tyrone rolled out the extra dough into bases and froze these, ready for more pizzas in the future.

The sauce (according to Tyrone) is a tin of chopped tomatoes with added garlic and herbs. It’s not really a recipe as such. Just add what you like and hope for the best. Fortunately, it always turns out well.

We used two types of cheese on our pizzas: mozzarella and cheddar. I also added some cooked sandwich chicken to mine. However, my usual choice of topping would be ham and mushroom. That’s why I always order a New Yorker from Domino’s.


Why the square pizza? Because we only have one round baking tray, haha!

What’s your favourite pizza topping?

Enjoyed this post? Why not share it...

  1. Mmm, these look great. I am always keen to try good pizza dough so I might give it a try.

    For the sauce I usually just use pasta sauce.

      I’ve never though about using pasta sauce before. What a great and simple idea! Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

    Ooh, that looks really good! And sounds simple enough – I’ll have to try it sometime πŸ˜€

    My favorite pizza topping is mushroom and spinach. I’m actually not a big fan of meats on pizza :0

      My boyfriend is a vegetarian so obviously he opts for meat free pizza too. But I’m the opposite. I love a meat feast pizza!

    that. looks. real. good. i’ve always wanted to try making homemade pizza and i’ve been telling my mother to try making it but my persuasion never succeeded. i’ve been persuading her since i was a child but it never worked lol… she said it’s too much work and complicated.

    i’m drooling over your pizza *o* good thing you didn’t put pineapple there lol

      Making pizza can be messy but it’s not too difficult at all. Plus it tastes better than shop bought. πŸ˜€

  4. Mushrooms by far. Man, that looks so delicious! Pizza, pizza, and more pizza! *drools*
