Definition: Pizza Dough

In the context of a pizza oven, pizza dough refers to the raw, uncooked mixture of flour, water, yeast, salt, and other ingredients used to make the base of a pizza. It is typically shaped into a round or rectangular form and then baked in the pizza oven until it becomes a crisp and golden crust.
