Pizza Base recipe

02 Oct

I have found this recipe on the Minimins forum and it was posted by angie.  I haven’t tried it as yet, plan to at some point next week but really wanted to add it to here so I can find it easily 🙂

The inital post can be found here

Syn value: 9.5

Serving size: 2 12″ pizza bases


  • 75ml tepid water
  • 1/2 tsp sugar (1/2 syn)
  • 1 tsp dried yeast (1/2 syn)
  • 100g plain flour – preferably OO flour (18 syns)
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Add the sugar and the yeast to the water. whisk together with a fork and leave to stand somewhere warm for 10 mins til froth forms.
  • Mix the salt and flour in a large bowl. Add the liquid in and mix to incorporate all the liquid.
  • Tip out onto a non stick surface (I use a greaseproof liner) and knead for 5 mins until smooth and silky.
  • Leave to rise in a bowl until at least doubled in size (I went to weigh in!)
    ‘knock back’ (poke and punch the air out again) and form into 2 equally sized balls.
  • On your non stick liner again, roll and stretch this dough to the size you want your pizza. I can get it to about 12″, but it could easily be thicker and smaller. Small holes is not a problem at all – it just goes crispy
  • Frylight a pizza or oven tray, and lay your dough onto it. Leave somewhere warm for about 10 mins while you make your toppings.
