Best Pizza Dough I’ve Ever Made!

posted in: Recipes 0

A great homemade pizza starts with having a great dough recipe. I like this recipe because it has a good amount of chew, and isn’t powdery. It’s a fairly easy recipe (I even have a trick for when your yeast doesn’t react), all you need is a little  time to let it rise. I hope you enjoy!

  • 5 T Dry Active Yeast About 2 Packets
  • 1 ¼ Cups water heated to 115 degrees
  • 3 ½ Cups Flour
  • 2 ½ TB Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp olive oil


  • Combine yeast and water to a bowl. Wait 5 – 7 minutes to proof (the mixture should foam). If it doesn’t foam after 5 minutes, sprinkle in ½ tsp of sugar to encourage it.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl, half at a time, and mix with a wooden spoon mix until the dough starts to come together.
  • Place the dough onto your work surface and knead for six to seven minutes, being very thorough and firm. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic (but not sticky.)
  • Place dough in a bowl and cover with a teaspoon of olive oil. Turn the ball so it gets coated in the oil completely.
  • Place bowl in a warm area to let proof for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours (it will double in size.) I always proof in my oven at 95 degrees.
  • Now it's good to use for any pizza (or pizza-like recipe!)
