5x 250g dough balls (for 12" pizzas) or 4x 330g dough balls (for 16" pizzas)


17 oz (480 g) warm water

1 tbsp (15 g) active dry yeast

26.5 oz (750 g) bread flour

1 tbsp salt

1 ½ tbsp olive oil

3.5 oz (100 g) rice flour or semolina for dusting


  • 01

    In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of flour into the warm water. Once combined, stir in the yeast until well blended. Allow mixture to bloom in a warm place for about 5 minutes, or once it becomes foamy.

  • 02

    Place half of the remaining flour into a large bowl. Add the yeast mixture and stir well. Add in remaining flour and salt and mix until all ingredients are combined. Sprinkle your work surface with a light dusting of flour and knead the dough for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it is elastic and springs back to the touch.

  • 03

    Grease the bowl with the olive oil and gently roll the dough ball around to cover all sides with oil. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm spot for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the dough is twice its original size.

  • 04

    Divide the pizza dough into 5 x 250 g or 4 x 330 g dough balls. Shape the dough into round balls using the method found here. 

  • 05

    Brush the dough balls with olive oil, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm spot for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the dough is twice its original size.

  • 06

    Preheat your Ooni pizza oven to 500˚C (932˚F). Use the Ooni Infrared Thermometer to check the

    temperature inside the oven. While your dough is rising, prepare your favorite pizza toppings.
