Breville’s Adele Schober shares a simple recipe for Margherita Pizza using the Breville Smart Oven®.

Ingredients for pizza dough

  • ¾ Cup + 2 tablespoons (210 ml) warm water
  • 1 ¾ Teaspoons (8 ml) Quick Rise Instant Yeast
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 ml) Honey
  • 2 Cups (500 ml) Unbleached all purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons (45 ml) Yellow cornmeal (optional)
  • 1 Teaspoon (5 ml) Kosher salt


  • ½ cup Tomato Sauce
  • ¾ cup torn bocconcini cheese
  • Fresh basil and fresh oregano for garnish.
  • Drizzle with olive oil.


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the honey in water. Sprinkle the yeast on top of the water and let stand for 3 minutes. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal (if using) and salt. Pour the water/yeast mixture into the flour and mix to form a ball. Transfer the contents onto a working surface and knead the dough for approximately 7 to 10 minutes or until you have formed a smooth and elastic dough.
  2. Grease the bottom and sides of a clean medium size bowl with olive oil (approximately 1 teaspoon).
  3. Place the ball inside the bowl; turn it over to grease the underside. Cover the bowl lightly with plastic wrap and set aside. Allow the dough to rise approximately 30 minutes.
  4. When the dough is proofed, divide it in half. Stretch the dough to fit the Breville non-stick pizza pan.
  5. Spread ½ cup Tomato Sauce and ¾ cup torn bocconcini cheese on the top of the dough. Add fresh basil and fresh oregano for garnish. Drizzle with olive oil.
  6. To bake the pizza turn the funtion dial until the indicator on the LCD screen points to PIZZA function.
  7. De-select the FROZEN and CONVECTION settings. Bake the pizza for the default temperature time.

TIP: For a crispier crust, add one more minute.
