Original Pizza Dough Recipe by Pro Home Cooks, modified by Peppertux Farms



  • Pizza dough, recipe shown below
  • Peppertux Farms Pistachio Butter or Pistachio Cream. Either option would work for this recipe. Depending on the size of the pizza,
    • 3-4 tbsp Peppertux Farms Original Pistachio Butter
    • 3-4 tbsp Peppertux Farms Vegan Pistachio Cream
  • Strawberries
  • Chopped pistachios, to garnish


  • Spread the pizza dough into a large disc.
  • If using a wood-fire oven: preheat the pizza stone to about 700 degrees fahrenheit. Bake for about 45 seconds to 1 minute on one side, then rotate and bake for another 30 seconds. 
  • If using an oven, preheat and cook according to package instructions. 
  • Once the dough is cooked/baked, spread generous amounts of Peppertux Pistachio Butter or Cream and top with strawberries and chopped pistachios. Enjoy!




  • 200g water
  • 5g honey
  • 5g yeast
  • 200g all purpose flour

Pizza Dough

  • Poolish, as shown above
  • 300g water
  • 300g bread flour
  • 200g all purpose flour
  • 10g salt
  • Zeytin Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to coat the dough while it rests



  • Add water, honey, and yeast in a large container and mix well until fully dissolved.
  • Add flour and mix until well combined. Let it sit for 15 minutes uncovered.
  • Seal and let it sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • Place in the fridge overnight. Note the dough should stay in the fridge  under 24 hours otherwise it will become acidic.

Pizza Dough

  • In a large bowl, add all the poolish and water. Mix well.
  • Add in bread flour, all purpose flour and salt. Gently combine - it is completely fine to have some dry spots that have not yet been combined. You should have a very wet and shaggy dough.
  • Dump out the dough onto a clean surface and gently knead. The dough will still continue to be shaggy but you should not have any dry spots.
  • Coat the dough with a little bit of Zeytin Extra Virgin Olive Oil and let it sit for 15 minutes uncovered.
  • Gently detach the dough from the counter and shape into a tight ball. Cover again with Zeytin Extra Virgin Olive Oil and let it sit for 1 hour under a damp towel.
  • Cut the dough into 4 pieces and gently shape each piece into a ball. Place on a baking tray about 2” apart so they do not touch each other when they grow larger. Cover with a damp towel for 1 hour.
  • You'll now have 4 pizza doughs ready to go!
