Good pizza dough demands excellent flour and this easy dough recipe uses Wessex Mill Pizza & Pasta Flour, which you’ll find in stores. Wessex Mill are a small family flour mill based in Wantage, Oxfordshire. The Munsey family have been milling Oxfordshire for over a 100 years and the mill is currently run by fourth generation flour miller Paul, with his daughter Emily studying to become a miller as well. Their flour is milled using only the best wheat from local farms, using a traditional roller milling process.


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing together with your fingers. Bring the dough together with your hands and transfer to a lightly floured work surface. Knead for 8 minutes.
  2. Place the dough in bowl and cover with lightly oiled cling film. Leave to rise for one hour.
  3. Remove the risen dough from the bowl and knock back for 2 minutes. Divide into 6 even pieces, cover loosely with clingfilm and leave to prove again for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to the highest setting. Roll out your first piece of dough and place it onto a floured baking tray. Add any sauces and toppings before baking in the oven for 8 minutes, or until the edges are puffed up and golden.
  5. Repeat with the remaining pizzas and serve immediately.

Chefs tip:

This dough can also be used for flatbread. Simply break off a small piece of dough and roll out to approximately 2mm thick. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the flatbreads for 1 minute on each side. Serve warm with hummus.
