Basic Pizza Dough
Yield: 1 13x18in pie
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast (or 1 packet)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbl olive oil
  1. Whisk yeast into warm water and let sit a minute or two.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine salt and flour and make a well in the center. Pour yeast/water into the well and using a spatula (or your hands), mix until you have a shaggy dough.
  3. Add the olive oil and continue to mix until dough forms into a ball - it will probably be easier to use your hands once you have added the olive oil.
  4. Once there is not more dry flour in the bowl and the dough has come together, cover with plastic and let sit until doubled in size and when pressed the dough slowly springs back - this will take about 2 hours at room temp.
