Who doesn’t love pizza? We have pizza for dinner at least once a week and with a family of 5, we usually will need to order 2 large pizzas when we get takeout (my oldest son is 13 and eats everything in sight!). That can get quite expensive and it is just SO easy to make your own pizza crust with my easy pizza dough recipe!
How To Make Easy Pizza Dough Recipe | Make Your Own Pizza Crust
Pizza dough recipe ingredients:
3 cups Flour
1 tbsp Yeast
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Olive Oil
9 fl oz Warm Water
Place flour in the bowl for your mixer and make a well in the flour
Fill well with the yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil and water
Attach the dough hook to your mixer and turn mixer on low until all ingredients are combined (about 3 minutes)
Turn mixer to medium speed and knead for 5–10 minutes or until a smooth ball forms.
To make it by hand:
Place flour into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center.
Add yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil and water and stir until combined (you may need to use your hands and not a spoon to get everything mixed together)
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5–10 minutes or until a smooth ball forms.
Once you have the dough ball made:
Place dough ball into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean dry cloth.
Place bowl in a warm place away from any drafts until the dough has doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
Turn dough out on a floured surface and punch down the dough to remove excess air.
Divide dough in to 4 pieces.
Roll out each piece (or freeze some for later) and top with pizza sauce and your favorite toppings!
Bake at 400 for about 12 – 15 minutes or until edges are browned and bottom is fully cooked.
And there you have it! An easy pizza dough recipe that you can make for very little money! Have you ever made your own pizza crust?
