Classic Pizza Dough

Classic Pizza Dough, sugar recipe, brought to you by New Zealand Woman's Weekly


Classic Pizza Dough

  • 1 sachet (8g) instant dry yeast
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 350 ml lukewarm water
  • 500 g plain flour, plus extra for dusting


  1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and salt and mix well, then add the water and set aside for 10 minutes until the mixture is frothy and bubbling.
  2. Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre, add a quarter of the yeast liquid at a time, mixing with your fingers until the mixture is sticky and clumps together. Transfer to a lightly-floured surface and knead the dough with your hands for 5-8 minutes or until the dough is smooth and pliable (you may need to add a little extra flour or water).
  3. Place the dough back into a clean, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp tea towel and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Remove the tea towel and knock back or punch the dough a few times to release the air, then let rise again for 30 minutes before using.
