Thin Base Pizza Dough Recipe

This thin base pizza dough recipe is enough to make 3 pizza’s with left overs for the kids to make dough animals or men and women.


  • one 7g sachet dried yeast
  • 1 and a 1/2 cups warm water – I use boiled kettle water, must let cool
  • half a teaspoon of caster sugar
  • 4 cups high protein plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  1. boil water in kettle and place 1 and 1/2 cups of water in a bowl, let cool to lukewarm. place half a teaspoon of caster sugar (you can substitute for normal sugar) stir, let settle, empty yeast contents in water and put aside for 5 minutes, or until foamy.
  2. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and the oil. Use a blunt kitchen knife/butter knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture is combined. once combined use your hands to form a large ball.
  3. tip dough onto a lightly floured work station and knead until smooth and stretchy. place into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling wrap and set aside to rise (roughly double in size)
  4. remove dough from bowl, place onto a lightly dusted surface and knead dough for 30 seconds. Break a first size chunk apart and with a rolling pin roll into a half centimeter thick base. place in Pizza tray cut off excess dough and return to remaining dough. set aside a repeat this step for the next two pizza bases.
  5. With left over dough allow kids to make their own little baking figurines or men/women to keep them occupied during preparing dinner time. Or use to make garlic bread.
  6. Add your desired toppings and bake on bottom tray in oven at 250 degrees celsius for 8 – 10 minutes or until cheese is browned. (excess cheese may lead to soggy pizza bases)
