As you all know, there are millions of pizza recipes out there. However, I strongly believe the main difference between one another is a good pizza dough. Pizza dough is indeed key for great pizza flavour!

Even though we have all bought frozen pizzas before, we all also know nothing compares to homemade pizza – it’s much more fresh, healthy and delicious.

Dare yo make your own pizza, the difference with bought one is hoge! I promise you will not regret it, and you will prefer to prepare your own before ever calling a pizza delivery again.


The recipe I share below is the base of every pizza dough. Despite this, you should try and mix different types of flours. I invite you to play around with the houndreads of flours in the market. As my mum is celiac, I use gluten free flour quite a lot – either a premade mix, or naturally gluten free flours, for example buckwheat.

Also, you can make a much healthier pizza simply by adding some whole wheat to your pizza dough. I always recommend to mix half whole wheat with at least half (or 2/3) of plain flour. By plain flour I mean white flour – I love to use spelt flour, as it has much more protein than the plain one. I recommend doing so as, if you only use whole wheat, the flavor can be a bit too bitter and affect the ultimate result of the pizza dough.


  • 4 cups and 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 block of dry yeast (25 gr)
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Salt, as needed
  • For the onion topic:
  • One big white onion
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • Oregano, as needed


  1. For the dough: put the flour in a bowl (you can use spelt flour, or mix half plain flour and half whole-grain flour). Play around with different flours and feel free to mix them, so you can make the dough much healthier!.
  2. Mix everything well and knead very well. You will need to mash the dough against the table and kneed it a lot – have fun with it, it’s very therapeutic! Once you are done, put it on a bowl with a cloth on top to keep it warm and leave it to rise for around 3 hours.
  3. Once the dough is ready, stretch it with a rolling pin – with this recipe you can make two pizzas.
  4. Oil two pizza trays and put the dough on each of them. Cook the pizza at 250 degrees. The oven needs to be pre-heated – it is key to wait for it to be very hot before you put the pizzas in! If you are putting tomato to a base, you can put it on before cooking them. If you are adding cheese, make sure you pre-cook the pizza first for around 10 minutes.
  5. For the onion topping: cut a big white onion in slices. Put it in a bowl and cover it with water – microwave for 3 minutes. Drain the water, add salt and olive oil (I add around 4 full spoons). Microwave for another minute.
  6. Cover one pizza with olive oil, the onion preparation and oregano. You can also add some vegan parmesan on top! Cook as explained above for around 12 minutes until golden and ready to eat!
