A pizza base is an ingredient used to make pizza. It can be made by using water with a pot of flour, awarding the player with 1 Cooking experience, and requires a Cooking level of 35 to make. It can be used with a tomato and cheese to make an uncooked pizza, which can then be cooked. Once it is cooked you get a plain pizza which can be eaten in two bites, or you can add toppings to it. Pizza bases can also be purchased from Tony's Pizza Bases in the Bandit Camp.

Methods to make Pizza base[edit | edit source]
Using the Cooking Guild[edit | edit source]
The Cooks' Guild provides a cheap but time consuming method of making your own pizza base. You will need to be at least level 32 in cooking and wear a chef's hat to enter. You will be able to produce 27 bases at a time comfortably, because you only need one space for a pot that will hold the ground flour..
You can get 27 grain from the handy patch behind the guild. Once you have your 27 grain, enter the guild, climb to the top floor and collect a pot from the table. You may have to wait for them to spawn if they had recently been taken.
Place 1 grain in the hopper, then operate the hopper controls. Put the next grain in the hopper and operate the controls again. Continue this until all 27 grains have been processed.
Run down to the ground floor of the cooking guild. Use your pot on the mill to fill up a pot of flour. Now use the pot on the pump and drain adjacent to flour bin. You will be given a choice of different dough. Select Pizza dough (pizza base). Then refill your pot from the mill and your jug from the sink and make more dough. Continue this process until you have all 27 pizza bases. If you stand directly between the mill and the sink you will minimise your time.
Starting from the bank desk at the Grand Exchange and running to the field to collect the grain, milling the grain, mixing the dough, and returning to the bank desk to deposit your pizza base. This entire process requires about 9 minutes for 27 pizza bases. A member would have a significantly better output, as there is a members' only bank inside of the cooking guild. However, they must be wearing the Varrock armour 3, which requires completion of the hard Varrock Tasks.
Using the Culinaromancer's Chest[edit | edit source]
The most efficient way, if possible, is to use the Culinaromancer's chest since the player can buy flour there. There is a bucket nearby that respawns if you need an extra, and the chest is also a bank.
The most efficient way for non-members is to purchase 27 pots of flour from Mess Sergeant Ramsey, utilise the sink directly behind Ramsey to turn the flour into pizza bases and store them at the Taverley bank located a short distance south of the shop. For this method to work, the player needs to enable the "Destroy empty containers when cooking" gameplay option from the Miscellaneous Settings section of the Gameplay Settings.
Ramsey's shop also sells tomatoes which are an ingredient in pizza, so if the player's end goal is making pizzas instead of just selling the bases it can be beneficial to also keep buying tomatoes from Ramsey as they become available.
This method requires little experience and is easily accessible to new players since Ramsey's shop is located in Taverley, which is where new players end up after completing the tutorial.
Using Wydin's Food Store[edit | edit source]
This method can be useful especially if the player has exhausted the stock at Mess Sergeant Ramsey's Cooking Supplies Shop. The method consists of purchasing a full inventory of pots of flour from Wydin's Food Store, storing them at bank deposit box located at the northern dock near the Monks of Entrana, and making them into pizza bases using a water source at another location. As running energy is consumed, players can use Home Teleport to save energy moving towards the store, and wear weight-reducing equipment.
Wydin also sells cheese and tomatoes, so if the player's end goal is making pizzas it's a good idea to keep exhausting his stock of those items in addition to purchasing flour.
Using the Sinclair Mansion[edit | edit source]
Another alternative of collecting the Pizza base is in the Sinclair Mansion north of Seers Village. It is recommended to bring 9 buckets, 9 pots, and as many laws as possible. Equip an air staff and Weight-reducing clothing. Run north of Seers' Village bank along the path to the Sinclair Mansion, and go to the northwest room. Fill the pots with flour and buckets with water, then make 9 pizza bases. Once that is done, refill the pots and buckets and use the Camelot Teleport. Run west to the bank, deposit the bases, then use the remaining buckets and pots to make the rest of the bases.
Using a Player Owned House Kitchen[edit | edit source]
Yet another alternative for making the Pizza base is a POH kitchen. Before you can do this you need to build an Oak larder at 33 Construction and a water source. You then simply click on the larder and withdraw a couple buckets of milk, which you empty and fill at the water source. You then also withdraw a pot of flour, then you make 9 pizza bases. Once you've done that you can use your servant to bank (requires a little extra cash) or simply run to the nearest bank and repeat.
