Dominos Style Pizza

Dominos Pizza Recipe

Dominos pizza is one of the most popular in the UK. The deep, dough, tangy sauce and rich cheese is the perfect cure for a pizza craving. Here is my favourite recipe for homemade pizza which is close to Dominos – it is deep and fluffy, with semolina and lots of mozzarella.

How to make Dominos style pizza at home:

1. Mix the water, yeast and honey in a bowl until they begin to foam. The water should be warm to touch.

2. In a stand mixer, add the flour and garlic and onion powder, then add the yeasty waster mixture

3. Mix on high with a dough hook for for 8 minutes, until the dough has come together to form a springy bal

4. Pour oil into the bowl and toss the dough so it is coated in oil (do not knead further). Cover the bowl of dough and leave to rise in warm place for 30 minutes

5. After 30 minutes, flour a work surface using a mixture of plain white flour and course semolina

6. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface and punch down slightly, then cover with a tea towel for 15 minutes whilst you pre-heat the oven to 190C (preferably with a round, pizza tray or stone in it so that is warmed for the pizza too)

7. Once the oven is pre-heated, remove the pre-heated tray/stone and transfer 1/3 of the pizza dough to it

8. Using your fingers, spread the dough on the base of the tray until you have the desired thickness – remember the pizza will rise slightly so do it thinner than you want the end result, if you want dominos style pizza, make sure your crusts are quite defined for dipping

9. Pop the pizza base (un-topped) into the oven for 5 minutes to pre-bake, after which it should look like this:

10.  After 5 minutes, remove base from oven and top with your favorite toppings. Once topped, return to the oven for 20 minutes, or until toppings are browned and cooked

11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before tucking in with some garlic dip

Hi Resham, yes you can – it’ll be slightly different but still yield a lovely pizza base 🙂
