Baking Time






  • 2 ¼ tsp Active Dry or Instant Yeast
  • ¾ C Water warm
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 240 g (2 C) All Purpose Flour, More flour for kneading


Put water into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle in yeast and sugar. Let set for 10 minutes or so til foamy.

Add salt and flour and mix to a ball of dough. Turn out on to er and knead for 2 minutes adding more flour as needed to keep it from sticking.

Grease the bowl, place back in, cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes while you get toppings prepared.

Preheat oven to 450°F

This dough is enough to press out to a 14” circle or 2 9” round circles for individual pizzas or a very thin half sheet pan size. Place onto lightly greased sheet. Arrange toppings.

Bake for about 12 minutes until crust is golden.

Pizza is one of my favorites! I grew up in the Northeast and we have a tendency to be a bit picky about our pizza. I love how easy this dough is and the sky is the limit for toppings. I have done everything from sweet to Brussels Sprouts!
