Billy's Dad's pizza dough recipe

This is not one that has been brought up through the generations. Billy's dad did not get the recipe passed down from his father and his father before him.

Rather, as the story goes, Billy's dad was bored one Sunday afternoon and he decided to make a pizza from scratch.

The pizza wasn't immediately good, but the recipe was refined over years until it became a Sunday night staple in Billy's household.

The rest was history. Now it is so good that it demands sharing with the wider world.

Makes one pizza (multiply for extra pizzas).


  • Roughly 1 ½ cups of pizza or ‘00’ flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Supper Supply Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Roughly 1 cup of very warm water


  1. Add flour to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Make a crater in the flour and add dry yeast. Cover yeast with a thin layer of honey.
  3. Add salt to flour mix. Add small amount of water into crater to start yeast reaction.
  4. When the water in the crater starts to bubble, add the olive oil and gradually add the remaining water as you mix with a spatula or hands until it forms a rough dough.
  5. Then take the dough out of the bowl and knead the ball for 5–10 mins until the dough is smooth and consistent.
  6. Clean the bowl, lightly oil (or sprinkle with flour) and place the dough ball back in the bowl, cover with cling wrap or moist tea towel and let stand until the ball doubles in size (1-2 hours). If you feel like really planning ahead, let it stand for 24-48 hours for the very best results.
  7. When ready, punch the dough down and roll into shape ready for your favourite pizza topping.
