  • Dissolve yeast in a bowl with water.
  • Add oil, salt, and flour (hold back some wheat flour). Mix the dough well.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead thoroughly. Add remaining flour if needed.
  • Roll out the dough into a square shape (about 30 x 35 cm). Place it on a piece of baking paper and let it rise for approx. 30 minutes.
  • Transfer the baking paper with the dough onto a preheated baking tray and partially bake the pizza for around 10 minutes at 225°C (conventional oven).
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a frying pan over high heat without browning it.
  • Add onions, spring onions, oregano, and salt. Sauté over medium heat for about 2 minutes, ensuring that the onions do not brown.
  • Spread 150 ml of sour cream on the partially baked pizza crust. Top with sautéed onions and bake for about 10 minutes at 225°C in the middle of the oven.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and add lamb's lettuce, asparagus, smoked salmon, and remaining sour cream. Garnish with oregano and freshly ground pepper.

Since white pizza does not have a tomato sauce base, it may require a slightly shorter baking time than traditional pizza. Look for a crispy, golden-brown crust and remember that everyone's preferences may vary, so adjust the baking time and temperature to your liking.


Elevate your pizza by using a pizza stone, baking steel, or a preheated baking tray to distribute the heat evenly, resulting in a more rapid cook with a consistent and crispier crust.

Experiment to create the perfect white pizza recipe

There are classic white pizza variations with specific toppings, but you can easily experiment to find the best version for your preferences.

Cheese selection also plays a crucial role in achieving a creamy and melty texture on your pizza. You can experiment with different varieties of regular or lactose-free cheeses to find the perfect combination. If you want something simpler, brushing the dough with olive oil or using herb-infused oils can add a touch of richness and depth.
