Easy Pizza Dough Recipe

My mother-in-law gave me this pizza dough recipe. It’s so easy and works brilliantly every time.

easy pizza dough recipe


4 1/2 Cups Plain Flour

2 tsp Baking Powder

2 cups lukewarm water

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tbls dry yeast

1/2 cup grated cheese for crust (optional)


1. In a bowl, mix together dry yeast and lukewarm water and set aside.

2. In a separate (large ) bowl, mix together 2 and 1/2 cups plain flower and baking powder.

3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mix and pour in water mix.  Add oil and mix through into a wet mix.

4. Add the additional 2 cups of flour and form into dough.

5.  Knead in the bowl for a few minutes, then allow rise for 30 minutes.

6.  Punch the dough down and knead for a few minutes.

7. Roll out dough to size and place on a greased pizza or baking tray. I use a large rectangle baking tray.

8. Allow the sides to hang slightly over the tray. Don’t worry if it looks messy or uneven. Place a little cheese along the outer dough of the pizza and fold over. This makes the edges both look and taste good.

9. Top with your choice of sauce and toppings and bake in a 190*C oven for about 10-12 minutes until the dough is slightly golden on the edge and the cheese is melted.

Yummy! That’s a really delicious pizza! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I love to bake, but I never make any pizza, I always bake some breads with my Zojirushi BB-HAC10. I think I’ll try to learn make pizza with your recipe.

You use cups to measure out the flour. Can you tell me the weight in grams please? Love your flatbread recipe, so so quick! Looking forward to trying this:-)

Hi Hayley

4.5 cups of plain flower is 600 grams.
