Recipe's preparation

    Simple sour dough
  1. Put 200 grams filtered water and 1.5 teaspoons of yeast in TMX bowl. Mix 37 degrees, for 1.30 minutes, speed 2.

    Add 490 grams sour dough starter (starter recipe in tips), and mix 37 degrees, for 30 seconds, speed 2.

    Add 600-650 grams bread flour (depending on how 'wet' your starter is), and knead 5 minutes. Tip dough into an oiled bowl, and cover with cling wrap, and rise until doubled in size.

    Turn dough onto your bench, and divide into 12 portions. Roll into balls, and place with space to grow, onto a lined tray. (6 per tray is what I do). This makes them into the individual rolls pictured.

    Cover with a piece of greased cling wrap in a warm spot until doubled in size.

    Preheat at oven to 230 degrees. Snip tops of buns with sharp scissors. Place in the oven, and spray some water in the oven (helps with a crispy crust), and bake for 10 minutes. Then turn the oven down to 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until sounding hollow when tapped on the base.
  2. Sour dough starter
  3. To start your sour dough starter, mix 1 cup of bread flour with 3/4 Luke warm filtered water in a clean bowl. Don't be scared to give it a good beat-helps put air in there!

    Feed your starter daily with the amount you started it with. Cover with a clean tea towel. The natural yeasts in your house will make it to what it is. You can share your starter, or just throw out half of it when you have it for a week. Otherwise, you can feed it, and put it in the fridge, which essentially puts the yeasts to sleep.


One lot of dough can be made into two - three pizza bases.

When you do the second rise, just divide into two - three portions (depending on size of base you want), and roll on a floured surface. Prick all over with a fork and rise until it's risen a little. You can freeze the bases by popping it straight in the freezer until frozen, and store in large zip lock bags, or use straight away by using as a normal pizza base with toppings of your choice.

Be creative! Turn into pizza bases, rolls or loaves!

    Hi there, these look fabulous but be really careful using so much dough in your Tm31 as it will put a great deal of pressure on your blades, maybe do this amount over 2 batches. Smile
