Marty’s Pizza Base Recipe

Since posting on Instagram about Marty’s pizza and how good it is, I’ve had a few friends request the recipe to make the dough. So here it is, from the man himself. Let me know how it turns out or tag #martyspizzabase on your Instagram photos.

Flour mixture:

1.5 cups of plain flour

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp of mixed herbs

To make activated yeast:

1 teaspoon of yeast powder

1 cup of water (lukewarm)

Pinch of sugar

Additional ingredients:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  1. With the powdered yeast, add 1 cup of lukewarm water and a good pinch of sugar.
  2. After 5 minutes, it will froth up then you add the flour mixture.
  3. Once the dough has been mixed and it’s not sticky, put it to a clean bowl then add a swirl of EVOO and cover with a damp cloth in a warm position in the kitchen for around 20 minutes.
  4. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and then place it on a holey pizza tray. Then add your desired toppings. (Pro Tip: Don’t go too heavy on the toppings)
  5. Cook for 8 mins at 190 degrees Celsius in a fan forced oven.
  6. To test if it’s cooked, tap the side of the base, if it’s hard, then it’s done.
