Simple Pizza Bases – Thermomix-made!

Whipping up a batch of pizza dough in your Thermomix could not be easier! Pizza nights for my family are fun for the kids, as they all get to top their own and fun for me, because since the kids all choose their own toppings, they always eat their dinner without complaints!

Just a handful of ingredients and a few minutes time and you’re well on your way to hand-held cheesy delicousness!

All you need for a versatile Pizza Dough!

Just five simple ingredients is all you’ll need to whip up these pizza bases in your Thermomix:

  • Water
  • Dried instant yeast
  • Salt
  • Olive oil
  • Flour – this recipe works perfectly with spelt flour or bakers flour, both will give you great results, so take your pick!

Once the dough is made, it needs to be rested to rise to about double the size. Put it somewhere warm for this and it should be ready to roll in about half an hour.

Pizza dough done in the Thermomix, toppings prepared by you

While the dough proves, use the time to prepare your toppings. Ideas of what you can top your pizzas with is limitless really!

Here are some ideas for you:

  • Pizza Sauce (see below for some suggestions of our favourite pizza sauces)
  • Fresh vegetables – capsicum, mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini strips
  • Marinated/jarred vegetables – artichokes, roasted red peppers, capers, olives
  • Cheeeeeeese! Mozzarella, cheddar, fetta… and if you’re dairy free/vegan, a store-bought plant-based cheese or a home made cashew cheeze (an awesome recipe for this dairy free awesomeness can be found in this book).
  • We don’t usually add meat to pizzas, but I know it’s a popular option for many. Chicken (pre-cooked), pepperoni, bacon, ham, etc. all make good pizza toppings.

Yummy Pizza Sauces

There are so many different sauces you can use for pizzas and we tend to have a couple of different options for our pizza nights.

Here are some of our favourites:

Other ways to use Pizza Dough

Well first and foremost pizzas are the number one way we use this dough, however, I have used it for other things too!

Pull-apart breads (pictured below), scrolls, pizza pockets… And of course not just big pizzas, you can make mini pizzas or Calzones!

Pizza from the Thermomix – Always Ready to go!

Pizza bases can be made in advance and frozen. This means they’re ready when you need a really quick, easy meal. There are a couple of ways you can do these pizza bases in advance. You can freeze the dough in balls, ready to defrost, top and bake.

But the way I do them is like this:

  1. Make the dough and leave to double in size.
  2. Knock down the dough, split into a few pieces.
  3. Roll out the bases.
  4. Spread with a bit of pizza sauce.
  5. Par-bake 5-6 minutes (200C).
  6. Leave to cool, then wrap and freeze!

You can then simply take out of the freezer, add your toppings and bake! This makes a meal in about half an hour – perfect for busy weekdays, or when you need a meal with very minimal effort.

  • 1.5 tsp salt

Instructions
