Basic Pizza Dough
Pizza Dough is a great recipe to always have on hand. It’s simple and can be used in many ways. The dough can be doubled for parties with different toppings, it’s a simple way to feed your guests and leave them both impressed and with full bellies.
|Prep Time||10 Minutes|
|Cook Time||15 Minutes|
|Passive Time||1 hour rest|
- 3-4 cups flour (Bread flour is the best but AP flour is ok too)
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1 package instant yeast
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
Add yeast and sugar to the warm water in a stand mixer and let sit for a few minutes. Add Olive Oil, salt and 3 cups of flour (1 cup at a time) until the dough forms a ball. If the dough is still sticky, slowly add more flour. If the dough is too dry, add a little water at a time.
Grease a bowl and add the dough, cover with a plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 1 hour. Punch dough down and divide into portions (will make 2 medium to large pizzas). Let rest for 10 more minutes and you are ready to bake!
