Pizza Dough

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Quick Acting or Pizza Dough Yeast
  • 3/4 cup Warm water
  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil


  • In a large mixing bowl, add flour. 
  • In a small bowl, add yeast to warm water. Let the yeast activate and bubble for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the yeast/water and the olive oil to the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon or your hands.
  • Once the dough starts to come together, turn it out onto a clean worktop and start kneading with your hands. You may need to add a bit of flour to prevent sticking. Continue kneading for 5-10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and forms a ball.
  • In a large bowl, add 1 TBSP olive oil and place dough inside to rise for at least 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  • When the dough is ready, roll to your desired thickness, shape, and size. Transfer to a baking sheet or pizza stone, add your toppings, and bake in a preheated oven at 450℉ for 12-15 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown on the edges. Slice, then serve.
