How to knead pizza dough?

Knead the dough on low speed with a dough hook for 5 to 7 minutes, or knead by hand on the counter for 6 to 8 minutes. When kneaded, the dough should form a smooth ball, feel smooth to the touch, and spring slowly back when poked.

We love pizza just as much as you, and using Allinson's flour is our way of making sure we achieve a stretchy, doughy base every time. Try our Easy Pizza Dough recipe as a staple for any of your pizza creations. You'll soon be throwing away those takeaway menus.

6 ingredients6 steps


    1. Step 1


      Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Mix the water and oil together, then stir in with a cutlery knife.

    2. Step 2

      KNEAD Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer). 

    3. Step 3


      Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size – about 1 hour depending on how warm your kitchen is.

    4. Step 4


      Divide the dough into 16 small pieces – keep others under the tea towel to stop them drying out. Roll a piece of dough to a small, thin (about the thickness of a £1 coin) round on a lightly floured surface. Lift onto a floured baking sheet. Time to top your pizzas. Try one of these yummy topping combinations:

      • Sliced pear, walnuts, thyme and blue cheese
      • Olives, sundried tomatoes, basil leaves and Parmesan
      • Smoked bacon lardons, red onion, chilli flakes and goat’s cheese

      To stuff the crust, simply sprinkle grated cheese around the edge of the pizza and then fold the edges over the cheese into the pizza

      Preheat your oven to 240°C (fan 220°C, gas mark 8).

    5. Step 5


      Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove for 20 minutes until puffed a little. 

    6. Step 6


      Drizzle with a little more olive oil and bake for 15 minutes, until crisp and golden on top.
