Author: Malinda Linnebur
  • cups (380g) all-purpose flour or bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • ¾ cup (180ml) warm water (about 110°F)
  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Attach the dough hook and add in the remaining ingredients. Mix on low until everything is combined.
  2. Once everything is combined mix on low for 10 minutes. When finished your dough should be only slightly tacky. If it is unmanageable add in a small amount of flour at a time until it becomes more manageable.
  3. Coat a large bowl with olive oil and place the dough in the bowl turning once to coat dough. Cover with a towel and set in a warm place to rise until double in size. (I like to turn my oven on briefly to make a nice warm and draft free place for the dough to rise)
  4. Punch your dough down to release the air and shape into a ball. At this point you may freeze or refrigerate your dough. See recipe notes for instructions.

  5. Otherwise, place your dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to 14 inches. Place on a lightly greased pizza pan then pierce the dough numerous times with a fork. I do this to prevent any large air bubbles from forming. Top and bake according to your favorite pizza recipe.

Recipe Notes
  1. Freezer Friendly: To freeze the pizza dough: After the dough has risen punch it down and form into a ball. Lightly coat with olive oil and place in a freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible and freeze for up to 3 months. To thaw frozen pizza dough: Place in the refrigerator for 8-10 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 2-3 hours before you want to serve your pizza. Continue with step 5.
  2. Make-Ahead: Let it rise for about 30ish minutes then place in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. If storing in the refrigerator remove 2-3 hours before you want to serve the pizza.
  3. Nutrition facts: Since different brands of ingredients have different nutritional information, the information shown is just an estimate. The nutrition is calculated for the entire crust. If you would like to know per slice divide by how many slices you make.
