Easy homemade pizza
Make an easy base and use your imagination!

Base for 4 small pizzas:

500g strong white flour

325ml lukewarm water

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 sachet dried yeast - 7g

For the topping:

200g passata

2 fresh mozzarella

1/2 tsp oregano

Drizzle of olive oil


Fresh basil

Red onions




Parma ham



Mix the yeast with the water and let sit for about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, combine flour with salt. Add the water to the flour and start mixing with a spoon. When the dough comes together, turn onto a floured surface and knead for 6 to 8 minutes. Place in a bowl covered with a damp cloth and let rise for about 2 to 3 hours. 

Cut into 3 or 4 equal-sized balls of dough and let rise for another 30 minutes.

Heat the oven to 250°C or as hot as it can go. Place a baking tray upside down in the middle of your oven. Flatten the dough, place on baking paper and give it a round shape. Spread the passata, chunks of mozzarella and other desired toppings. Season with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Transfer the baking paper onto the hot baking tray in the oven and cook for 10 minutes. 

Enjoy immediately!
