The Bestest, Easiest Homemade Pizza Dough…EVER

I love to make things from scratch.

As many things as I can.

And I have been purposing to cut back on take-out dinners to maybe once or twice a month.

(It’s getting easier!)

Pizza is one of our favorite foods.

(Isn’t it everyone’s?)

Here is the bestest, easiest recipe ever.

I usually triple it to feed a crowd.

(Our family is usually a crowd.)


1 teaspoon active dry yeast

2 tablespoons sugar or honey

1 cup very warm tap water

3 cups all-purpose unbleached flour

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in very warm tap water.
  2. Allow mixture to sit for 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  3. In the meantime, mix the flour with olive oil and salt in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle.
  4. Add yeast mixture into flour mixture all at once.
  5. Mix on low for a minute or two, until all flour is absorbed.
  6. Turn mixer on medium and allow to mix/knead until the dough becomes a ball and is smooth in texture. (This usually takes about 5 or 6 minutes.)
  7. Remove dough and lightly knead it as you shape it into a ball. You can do this in your hands or on a board with a little bit of flour.
  8. Place dough ball in a large bowl that has been greased with 1 teaspoon olive oil.
  9. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled in size, approximately 1 1/2 hours. (If the weather is especially cool, turn your oven on 200 degrees and set bowl next to it. The warmth from the oven will encourage the yeast to do it’s job.)
  10. Punch down the dough and use immediately OR place in a ziploc and put it in the refrigerator until you need it. Allow 2 hours for the dough to sit out and warm up before using.

Using your pizza dough:

  • cut the dough into 4 equal pieces
  • roll out on a floured board OR stretch using your hands until dough is at desired thickness
  • place on parchment lined baking sheet and top using your favorite things: marinara sauce, cheese, veggies, meats, etc.
  • bake at 400 degrees for about 7 or 8 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly
