Pizza, Naan Bread, and Dough Balls – all from one recipe

Basic recipe for the dough —


4 mugs of plain flour

1 ½ tablespoon dried yeast

1 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon of salt

1 mug of warm milk and water mixed


  1. Combine the flour, yeast, oil, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add half the milk and water and stir the mixture with a spoon.
  3. Little by little, keep adding the milk and water slowly to the bowl. At this stage use your hands to bring the mixture into a dough.
  4. Use your own discretion regarding when to stop adding milk and water. If the dough becomes too sticky, don’t worry, just add some more flour.
  5. Cover the dough with a tea towel and leave to rise for at least 2 hours.
