Author Sarah - Flour & Spice



  • 1 sachet active dry yeast (2 ¼ tsp)
  • 1 cup very warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp oregano
  • 2 ½ cup flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Pizza Toppings

  • ¾ cup cooked Turkey chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 2 ½ tbsp Tandoori or Tikka Masala Sauce
  • ½ green pepper, sliced into small strips
  • 325 g mozzarella cheese (half a large bar)
  • ¼ cup sliced red onion
  • ½-3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 thinly sliced green chillies

Fun Extras

  • red chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp melted butter


Pizza Crust

  1. Pour the one cup water in a bowl, add the sugar and then sprinkle the yeast over.

  2. Set aside for a few minutes - it'll look a little foamy. You can skip this step if you're 100% sure your active dry yeast is fresh, but if not then I recommend activating the yeast.

  3. Add the remaining ingredients and knead for a few minutes to combine well. Place in a lightly oiled bowl.

  4. I like to cover it with a cloth and put in a warm space for fifteen minutes to make rolling it out easier.

  5. prep the pan by laying down parchment paper, sprinkling on cornmeal or lightly greasing the pan.

  6. Roll the dough out to desired shape - oblong for a baking sheet, round for a pizza pan, or even 2 9 inch pizzas (adjust quantities for toppings by increasing by 50%)

Pizza Time

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  2. Top the pizza with the sauce, spreading evenly

  3. Scatter half the cheese, all the toppings and the remaining cheese.

  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pizza is golden and bubbly, when it is almost done pull it out and lightly brush the crust with melted butter.

Recipe Notes

  • This crust is fairly thick in a 14 inch pan, but lovely and soft. If you prefer a thinner crust you can easily make 2 smaller round pizzas or roll it out on to an oblong shape on a baking sheet. Just increase toppings by 50%.
