Graeme Taute’s Rustic Artisan Pizza Base


  • 770G Bread white flour – 100%

  • 15g (2 ¼ teaspoons) ORYX salt – 2 %

  • 6 g (1 ½ teaspoons) instant yeast – 0.7%

  • 680g ice-cold water – 88%


  1. Make ice-cold water by filling a jug with cold water from the fridge and topping with 8 or so cubes of ice.  Wait for 2 minutes, and measure out 680g into your mixing bowl.

  2. Add dry ingredients, and mix at low speed using a paddle attachment until the ingredients come together.  Leave to rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Continue mixing for 5-6 minutes at high speed.  The dough should begin releasing from the sides of the bowl but still, stick to the bottom.  If it doesn’t release from the sides, gradually add more flour, one teaspoon at a time, until it does.  If the dough seems too stiff and has released from both bottom and sides, dribble in more water.

  4. Once mixed, transfer to a well-oiled bowl, mist the top with spray oil, cover with cling film, and refrigerate overnight.

  5. The next day, remove the dough from the fridge and let it ferment at room temperature for 2-3 hours until doubled in size.

  6. Make pizza base as per demonstration on the Weber Pizza Stone with Handles.
