Soft, thin crust, cooked in a very hot oven: Most Neapolitan pizzas are baked in a wood fired pizza oven. I make mine at home, it might not have the touches of a very hot oven but with a Pizza stone and the right stretching technique (See the video below) you will be able to achieve the texture at home.

Servings 2 Pizza's


  • Stand Mixer.
  • Pizza Stone


For the Dough

  • 325 ML Warm Water 1 1/3 cup
  • 10 grams yeast 1 Tablespoon
  • 5 grams fine sea salt 1 Teaspoon
  • 500 grams Pivetti Organic Wholemeal bread flour from juthour

For the Pizza

  • Pomi Pizza Sauce from juthour
  • Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
  • Basil Leaves
  • Olive oil for drizzling


For the Dough

  • Pour some of your warm water in a bowl and mix in the yeast. Set aside and allow to proof.
  • In a stand mixer, using the dough hook, mix flour and salt for a minute or two to ensure it's well incorporated.
  • Once the yeast has activated, add it to the flour mixture.
  • Gradually add the water as the dough continues to form.
  • Give your dough sometime if it doesn't come together add one tablespoon of water.
  • Dough will be sticky, that's perfectly fine. Knead by hand on a floured surface and form into a ball. The dough will be soft but non sticky after kneading by hand.
  • Cover and allow to double in size for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, punch down the dough, knead again, and divide into two pieces.
  • Shape into two balls and cover and allow to proof again for 30 minutes.
  • At this point while the dough is at it's second rise, preheat the oven at max and put the pizza stone in.

For the Pizza Topping

  • With the dough ready, punch it down and shape using your hands only begin to shape. I highly recommend you use baking sheets at this point to make transferring the pizza to and from the oven effortless.
  • The shaping of a pizza is basically done by stretching the dough into a thin, round shape by hand. This allows the bubbles to remain intact giving that perfect crunch and finish when it's baked. See video for details.
  • Add the tomato sauce, and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. You can add a pinch of salt at this point.
  • Top with fresh mozzarella cheese slices.
  • Add basil.
  • Bake in the oven for 6 - 8 minutes until the cheese is melted and the dough is set.
