  • 3 cups Flour I suggest using 00 flour
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 cup Water Warm
  • 2 tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 tbs Salt
  • 2.25 tsp Dry Yeast 1 Package


  • Gather your ingredients
  • Stir together the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Let sit for 10 minutes while it foams.
  • While slowly mixing, add salt and olive oil.
  • Slowly add the flour. With each addition, wait for it to be mixed before adding a little more. Continue until all flour is added.
  • Add a little water if your dough appears dry (just a little water goes a long way – be careful)
  • After it is well mixed, form a ball with the dough.
  • Stick in a covered container in a warm (not hot) place for it to rise. In this case, it was a beautiful day outside, so I placed it on the deck and gave it an hour.
  • After an hour or two, the dough is ready for your to shape! Be sure you're doing this on a very well floured surface. Parchment paper isn't a bad idea either.
  • Maybe grab a helper…..
  • Or 2 helpers!!!!
  • You want to get this dough stretched thin and smooth
  • You'll know when your crust is ready. 😉 Note how I rolled up the edges on two of these to form an outer crust. I haven't gotten wild enough to stuff that crust with cheese, but the day is coming soon. 😉


  • This recipe makes quite a bit of dough (I made 3 medium pizzas from it).  Adjust quantities as needed.
  • I used an electric mixer here, but you certainly could knead the dough by hand if you wanted.  Wouldn’t be a bad way to burn some calories before you indulge with the goodness you’re creating.  😉
