Homemade Gyoza Wrappers

I love Japanese food, a lot, but I haven’t found a Japanese restaurant here in Berlin that I love yet so when I had a craving for Gyoza, possibly one of my favourite things in the whole wide world, there was only one thing for it. I had to learn to make Homemade Gyoza Wrappers and here is my recipe:


  • 120g of Flour
  • 60ml of warm water
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Extra flour for dusting

  1. Start by adding the salt to your warm water and stirring until it has dissolved
  2. Then sieve the flour into a bowl and gradually add the water whilst combing, at this point the douch will be quite dry and look rough but this is OK, if you think it is too dry you can add a tiny bit more water
  3. Once combined, turn the dough out onto a well floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and has some stretch
  4. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces and roll each into a log shape, wrap in cling film and leave to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes
  5. After the dough has rested, unwrap and divide each log into 8 equal pieces, place onto baking paper and cover with a damp piece of kitchen roll to stop it drying out
  6. Take one piece of dough and roll into a ball in your hands
  7. Then place onto a floured surface and flatten into a disc before using a rolling pin to fully roll out the wrapper
  8. Roll out the wrapper until it is as circular as can be and around 1mm thick
  9. Place on the baking paper under the wet kitchen roll and dust with a little flour to stop it sticking and repeat with each piece of dough

Note: This recipe makes 12 wrappers

The Homemade Gyoza Wrappers are then ready to be filled and wrapped, I will be sharing our recipe for this with you at the weekend, so keep your eyes peeled! I can assure you they work and taste great, we have made them twice now and they taste as good as any you will get in a restaurant but you can easily make them at home!
