Ingredients

  • ¾ Cup Water warmed to 100-110℉
  • Teaspoons Instant Yeast 1 standard packet
  • Teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ¾ Teaspoons Salt
  • 2-2⅓ Cups All-Purpose Flour

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl to your stand mixer whisk together the yeast and sugar. Slowly whisk in the warm water until all three ingredients are combined. Cover with a towel and let sit for 5 minutes.

  2. Add into the activated yeast the oil, salt, and as much of the flour as you can by using a stand mixer. Beat on low speed for 2 minutes. I'm to get two cups of flour in.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Start kneading the dough for 3-4 minutes. The dough will feel a little soft and when poked with a finger should bounce back. If it doesn't bounce back knead some more.

  4. Grease a large bowl with cooking spray or oil. Add the dough into the bowl and turn once to coat with the cooking spray or oil.

  5. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for 60 minutes. Or until doubled in size.

  6. Turn dough out of the bowl and punch down to remove any air bubbles then shape the pizza. Place on a pizza pan or stone that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Add your favorite topping.

  7. Bake this pizza dough in a 475℉ oven until the desired doneness is achieved.

Recipe Notes

I like to prebake my pizza dough in a 475℉ oven for 10 minutes before adding my toppings. Then bake the assembled pizza in the 475℉ oven for 20-25 minutes. The baking time depends on your idea of doneness. 

The nutritional value may vary depending on the ingredients used.
