Here is a recipe that I’ve been using for years now for my own homemade pizza crust from scratch! Don’t be intimidated by making it at home. It’s so easy and is the best crust there is! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup warm water (about 100*F)

  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp active dry yeast

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 2 cups all-purpose or plain flour

  • Additional oil for greasing

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine warm water and sugar and sprinkle yeast on top to re-hydrate. Don't use boil hot of water or you will kill your yeast.

  • After yeast is a bit foamy, add in salt, 1 Tbsp oil and flour.

  • Mix well until it comes together to form a dough.

  • Knead until smooth and all flour is incorporated and dough is no longer sticky, about 3 minutes.

  • Grease a bowl with another tablespoon of oil, coat dough ball with oil and cover with a damp towel.

  • Let rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

  • Preheat oven to 450F degrees.

  • To use, grease a pan with more oil, pat dough out using your finger tips to 14"-16" in diameter.

  • Spread with sauce, top with cheese and toppings and bake for 12-14 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melty.

  • Makes (1) 16" pizza. Enjoy!!

TIPS
