Here’s how to make your own Rawnsley Lamb pizza in your own home!

Pizza Base


2 tsps. (7 g sachet) dried yeast

1 cup (250 ml) lukewarm water

2 2/3 cups (400 g) plain flour, plus extra to dust

2 tsps. salt

3 tbsps. (1/4 cup) olive oil


  1. Whisk yeast and water in a heatproof jug. Stand for 5 minutes or until frothy.

  2. Place flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Pour in the yeast mixture and oil. Using your hands, mix the dough until it comes together and is smooth. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead briefly.

  3. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap. Set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour until it doubles in size.

  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth. Divide dough and roll out pizza bases to desired size. Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking. Your dough is now ready for the Rawnsley special ingredients.
