With this basic recipe, you will get a delicious, smooth pizza dough in no time at all, which you can spread as you like. With a clever topping, pizza is not a fattening food either. How about an aromatic tomato sauce, mushrooms, gorgonzola and olives? Either way, the pizza dough scores points with a high proportion of whole grains, providing an extra portion of intestine-healthy fibre, unsaturated fatty acids, B vitamins and minerals.

For the yeast to work properly, it needs not only heat, but also something sweet. That's why this also applies to savoury doughs: Always add some honey or sugar.
