  • 1 teaspoon active-dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (be sure it's not hot)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (you may need a bit more)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt


  • Start by mixing the yeast and warm water in a large bowl. Let stand for about 5 mins, it will get a bit foamy
  • Stir in the flour and salt with a spatula until you've started to form a ball. Knead dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes. You can also use your dough hook attachment on your stand mixer. You should be left with a ball that springs back when you press it.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a towel, allow to rise for about an hour.  Roll out on a floured surface and add your favourite toppings. Bake at 450 F until it reaches desired crispiness, or grill on the BBQ!
  • This will make 2 x 10-inch pizzas.

Chef's Tip: For a crispier crust, substitute bread flour for the all-purpose.

@Ross Alisha – I’m not sure what the chicken stock and coconut milk is for as it’s not listed in the ingredients. Case of the multiple browser tabs perhaps? Let us know which recipe you were commenting on – we love to hear different takes on these recipes! – Kay.

I can only guess, since I haven’t made it that way. I would use about 2 cups chicken stock to simmer the ingredients on the stove, then add the coconut milk when the sweet potatoes are tender. Be sure the stock is mostly cooked away before you add the coconut milk.
