This pizza dough recipe can be used in both wood and gas-fired pizza ovens.
Pizza DOUGH

Soft-grain flour will give your pizza dough the stretch you need for pizza.  The 00 mill is very fine and perfect for pizza dough.

The standard dough recipe that I use is as follows:

  • 500g Soft-Grain Pizza Flour
  • 300g Water – not cold
  • 9g salt (can be adjusted to your taste)
  • 0.5g to 2g (depends on your climate for the room proof)

This is a 60% hydration pizza dough recipe.

The video above shows in detail how I make the pizza dough but here are the key points:

  • Measure 500g pizza flour and place in your knead bowl.
  • Measure 150g of water and dissolve 9g salt into that water and stir.
  • Add the salty water to the flour.
  • Measure 150g of water and dissolve the yeast into that water and stir.
  • Add the yeast water to the flour.
  • Mix together and knead.

I ADVISE THAT THE SALT AND YEAST BE KEPT SEPARATE UNTIL MIXED TOGETHER BECAUSE THE SALT MAY KILL OFF THE YEAST

I use a Panasonic breadmaker to knead the dough – I prefer to use it over a kitchen mixer with a dough hook.  Mainly because the dough keeps riding up the dough hook which leaves it largely unkneaded.

I change the hydration levels sometimes – I go up to 65% but I’m pretty happy with a 60% hydration level dough.
