Easy low-sodium Pizza Dough

Robert Thomas


Pizza dough is easy to come by in the markets these days but sodium level is along the lines of bread, just too much.

This uses 1/4 tsp of sodium, which is equivalent to 500 mg of sodium. Here it is spread out to four pizzas, so each dough portion should be about 125 mg.

The dough is very easy to make. It needs to sit out overnight in order to rise, so it's best to make it before going to bed.
