Make your own pizza with this authentic Italian recipe for a lighter crispier base.


  • For the dough
  • 650g/1lb 5oz strong white flour
  • 7g sachet of instant yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 25ml/1fl oz olive oil
  • 50ml/2fl oz warm milk
  • 325ml/11fl oz warm water


Step 1

Make the dough: mix the flour, yeast and salt together in a large mixing bowl and stir in the olive oil and milk. Gradually add the water, mixing well to form a soft dough. Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface and knead for about five minutes, until smooth and elastic. Transfer to a clean bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise for about 11⁄2 hours, until doubled in size.

Step 2

When the dough has risen, knock it back, then knead again until smooth, roll into a ball and set aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour until risen again.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to its highest setting. Divide the dough into six balls and roll each out onto a lightly floured work surface until 20cm/8in in diameter.

Step 4

Spread a little passata (or homemade tomato sauce) over each pizza base and top with your favourite toppings.

Step 5

Bake the pizzas in the oven until the bases are crisp and golden-brown around the edges and any cheese on the topping has melted or starts to bubble.
