Pizza Dough

I grew up in my families’ Italian restaurants and pizza was always a menu pleaser. I absolutely love pizza, but then again who doesn’t? My favourite kind is a thin crispy base with minimal toppings – I’d choose a Margherta with olives any day.

My pizza dough recipes is as wholefoods based as possible. I prefer to use wholemeal flour. If it’s something you are not used to and want to move towards using wholemeal, mix your white flour and wholemeal to help with the transition. Eventually you’ll enjoy the taste of wholemeal.


There are so many topping options. And for vegans there are loads of cheeses out there to use as an alternative. I even love pizza without cheese. Ever tried hummus as a base rather than sauce and cheese?
