    Pizza Express Garlic Butter Dough Balls

    The recipe makes two portions.


    · 150ml warm water – roughly 27 degrees

    · 1 teaspoon of sugar

    · 15g fresh yeast (or 2 level teaspoons of dry yeast)

    · 225g of plain flour (plus extra for working)

    · 1.5 teaspoons of salt

    · Extra virgin olive oil


    1. Preheat the oven to 230°C / 210°C fan assisted.

    2. Add the sugar and crumble the fresh yeast into the warm water. Allow the mixture to stand for 10–15 minutes in a warm place until froth develops on the surface.

    3. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle and pour the yeast mixture in.

    4. Lightly flour your hands and slowly mix the ingredients together until they bind.

    5. Generously dust your surface with flour, throw down the dough and begin kneading for 10 minutes until smooth, silky and soft. Leave dough to rest until soft to the touch but not too springy.

    6. Roll dough into a 1.2m long tube. Chop into 16 chunks and place in an oven proof pan. Leave the dough balls to rest in the pan for 30 mins.

    7. Make sure the oven has reached temperature and bake for 6 minutes until golden.

    Now, the dough balls would be nothing without their garlic butter sidekick.

    Luckily, Pizza Express appreciates the level of importance we place upon the garlic butter and accompanied its dough ball recipe with the butter recipe, too.
