Margherita, pepperoni or Hawaiian? Whatever your favourite pizza, create your own with Arla's dough recipe and add on any toppings of your choosing.


Step 1
  • Mix the flour, yeast and salt together in a large mixing bowl and stir in the olive oil and Lactofree Dairy Drink. Gradually add the water, mixing well to form a soft dough.
Step 2
  • Turn the dough out on to a floured work surface and knead for about five minutes, until smooth and elastic. Transfer to a clean bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise for about 1½ hours, until doubled in size.
Step 3
  • When the dough has risen, knock it back, then knead again until smooth, roll into a ball and set aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour until risen again.
Step 4
  • Preheat the oven to its highest setting.
Step 5
  • Divide the dough into six balls and roll each out onto a lightly floured work surface until 20cm/8in in diameter.
Step 6
  • Spread a little passata (or homemade tomato sauce) over each pizza base and top with your favourite toppings.
Step 7
  • Bake the pizzas in the oven until the bases are crisp and golden-brown around the edges and any cheese on the topping has melted.
