Pizza is a delicious food that is enjoyed by many people around the world. Making your own Pizza Dough can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can also be a bit of a pain if you don’t have the right tools. A pizza dough box can help to make the process much easier, and it can also be a great way to add some extra flavor to your pizza. Making your own pizza dough box is not as difficult as you might think, and it can be a great project for anyone who enjoys working with wood.


-One 1”x12”x8’ pine or poplar board
-One 1”x4”x8’ pine or poplar board
-Wood glue
-1 ¼” wood screws
-¼ pound 2 ½” ring shank nails
-1½ pound 3″ ring shank nails
-Stain or paint (optional)
-Clear finish (optional)


Making a Pizza Dough Box is a great way to keep your pizza dough from drying out.
You’ll need:
-1/2″ Plywood (we used maple)
-a jigsaw
-a drill
-a 1″ hole saw
-2 small hinges
-2 small handles or knobs
First, cut your plywood into a 18″x18″ square. Then, use the jigsaw to cut four 1 1/2″ wide strips that are 18″ long. These will be the sides of your box.
Next, take two of the strips and attach them together with hinges, making sure that the hinge is flush with the top of the strip. Now do the same thing with the other two strips.
Now you should have two hinged panels. To make the bottom of the box, take one of the panels and drill four holes evenly spaced along one long side. These will be for your handles or knobs.
To finish up, attach the bottom panel to one of the side panels with hinges and then add your handles or knobs. Now you’re all done!


Now that you know how to make a DIY wooden pizza dough box, put your new skills to the test and surprise your friends and family with your homemade pizzas. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even decorate your pizza dough box with paint or stencils. Whatever you do, make sure to enjoy the process and the delicious results.
