Pizza And Dough Recipe

Prep: 20 mins – Cook: 20 mins – Total: 45 mins

Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 cup warm water (around 110°F)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp active yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2-2½ cups all-purpose flour

For the Pizza

  • Sauce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Pre-cooked meat
  • Veggies

Directions

To Make the Crust

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease a pizza pan or cookie sheet and set to the side.
  • Mix together sugar, yeast and water and let that proof for 5 minutes until it’s nice and bubbly. (If you’re using instant yeast, skip the proofing step and just mix it all together!)
  • Add olive oil to the mix and stir well.
  • Add 2 cups of flour and salt and mix together with a spatula until a ball starts to form. Add more flour as needed, 1 tbsp at a time, until you have a slightly sticky dough ball. (*See notes if you plan to freeze the dough.)
  • Transfer to a floured surface and knead into a smooth dough. You can add up to half a cup of extra flour if needed.
  • Roll dough into desired shape and transfer to your greased pan.
  • Gently use a fork to prick the dough all the way around, being careful not to poke it all the way through the crust.
  • Bake the dough on the lowest rack of oven for 5 minutes, then remove. Poke any air bubbles with a fork.

To Make the Pizza

  • Add pizza sauce, cheese and toppings of your choice. (If you don’t like crispy toppings, add even more cheese on top of your toppings.)
  • Bake on the lower rack of oven for 15-20 minutes or until the crust looks crispy and is slightly brown. (Keep an eye on it, it goes from slightly brown to overdone quickly!)
  • Let sit for 5-10 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
