Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

If you’ve ever wondered how to make the perfect pizza dough at home, you’re in for a treat. With just a few simple ingredients and a little bit of patience, you can create a delicious pizza dough that will rival your favorite pizzeria’s crust.


  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (110°F)
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a small bowl, combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, olive oil, and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture and stir until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until it has doubled in size.
  5. Punch down the dough and divide it into two portions. Roll out each portion into your desired pizza crust shape.
  6. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake in a preheated oven at 475°F (245°C) for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
