PREP: 5 MINS + (12-24hrs “brewing” time)
COOK: 10 – 20 MINS


  • 4.5 cups of flour (you can use a mixture of plain and wholemeal if you like)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon active dried yeast or 1.5 breadmaker yeast
  • 600ml warmish water


  1. Find a nice big bowl and add all the ingredients. Make sure the water is only just warm so the yeast isn’t damaged by too much heat.
  2. Mix everything together really well, then cover the bowl with a clean, damp tea towel and leave on the kitchen bench for a minimum of 12 hrs and up to around 24.
  3. The dough will rise and do it’s thing with no help from us!
  4. When you are ready to make your pizza, heat your oven to around 220 degrees celcius and get a baking sheet or pizza stone ready.
  5. Tip the dough onto a well floured bench and give it a bit of a prod until it comes together in a ball.
  6. Separate it into 3 or 4 balls and roll these out into pizza bases.
  7. Add all the topping you like – My favourite is tomato paste, mushroom, zucchini, herbs and mozarella.
  8. Pop in the hot oven for 10 – 20 minutes until cooked to perfection.
  9. The dough is amazing and tastes like sourdough. Enjoy!
