We have gone through a lot of different pizza dough recipes here at Gozney, from the classics Neapolitan and New York-Style, to modern doughs like the airy crust Canotto style and the 100% Biga pizza dough.

To help you navigate through the pizza dough universe, we have listed and explained some of our all-time favourite pizza doughs. Try something new next time you fire up your Gozney Pizza Oven!
Let's start with the OG - Neapolitan Pizza, a thin base, puffy and chewy yet crisp crust. If you are new to making pizza dough, this is the one for you! With a few ingredients and simple steps, you'll be balling like a true pizzaiolo.
A 48 hour ferment means this dough takes on the most incredible flavour and the addition of olive oil, coupled with a lower temperature, 5 minute bake time, results in the most incredible thin and crispy sourdough pizza. Definitely worth the wait….
Cooked at a slightly lower temperature than it’s Neapolitan cousin, New York pizza is just as steeped in history and just as tasty!
A blend of flours, the addition of oil, and a longer bake result in a crispier finished pizza that is still so deliciously chewy and pliable that it’ll have you and your friends feeling like extras in Goodfellas!
Here are some of our best New York-Style Pizza Recipes:
Adam Atkins (@peddlingpizzas) shows us how to make this simple 100% Biga pizza dough recipe - perfect for any pizza lover looking to produce crusts which are full of flavour and beautifully puffy (the Biga the better!).
This recipe requires you to make a pre-ferment called a Biga the day prior to making your pizza. It’s referred to as ‘100% Biga’ as 100% of the flour used in this recipe goes into the Biga pre-ferment on day 1.
Canotto (or ‘dinghy’!) style pizza is characterised by it’s large, almost inflated looking airy crust.
Caputo, the Italian flour masters, have barely changed their blue bag, Neapolitan flour since 1889- until now! Their new ‘Nuvola’ flour is designed to create incredibly canotto pizzas and here is our recipe incorporating a poolish preferment to product an airy, incredibly crumbed crust with the most insane flavour profile!
The trend for making sourdough pizza is showing no sign of slowing down- and rightly so! It’s incredibly delicious, good for the gut and genuinely fun to make.
However it can seem a bit daunting when you first dive down the sourdough rabbit hole so we’ve created this (reasonably!) simple entry recipe into sourdough pizza. Don’t have a starter? No problem, check out our guide to building a sourdough starter on our previous recipe.
