Overnight Pizza Recipe (Day 1) - The Dough

Updated: Aug 18, 2021

By slowing down the process, we allow the flavours to develop properly - resulting in the tastiest Pizza dough you've ever had and the kids will love it! Get them involved and off the TV ๐Ÿ˜€

Don't worry, you don't need any special equipment or a wood fired oven like mine. Everything can be done at home - with fantastic results.


  1. In a bowl, dissolve the Yeast in the warm water (tepid)

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt together (Italian 'oo', High Grade or whatever you've got .... definitely NOT self-raising though!)

  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together, until all combined


This develops the Gluten structure and allows gas bubbles to get trapped in the dough. I knead my dough by hand - just like the Italian Pizzaiolo's (pizza makers) ... but please feel fee to use your kitchen appliances or whatever suits you best. 10 minutes should be fine.

Rest Overnight:

Put the dough in a bowl and cover - to stop a skin forming on the surface. I use a disposable shower cap - not from the bathrooms of course! You could simply place another bowl on top. Now leave the dough to do it's job overnight - or at least 8 hours

Tomorrow we'll make the tomato sauce and cook the Pizza .....๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽฉ
