My Favorite Pizza Dough

Written by , Posted in Baking, Pizza

This is my favorite pizza dough, ever. I found it on this website ages ago (it’s since disappeared). I use this dough for any kind of pizza crust (thick, regular, thin, flatbread). I use it for quick cinnamon rolls and quick garlic breads. I often double or triple the recipe then freeze it in individual freezer bags. To defrost I leave the dough in the bag on the counter for a couple of hours, or putting it in a bowl of cold water.

Here it is, with my changes. I hope you try it!

My Favorite Pizza Dough  
Recipe Type: Pizza
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 12 mins
Total time: 22 mins
  • 3 C flour (can do 2 1/2 C All Purpose, 1/2 C Whole Wheat)
  • 1 t honey (heaping)
  • 1 t olive oil (heaping)
  • 1 C hot water (100-110F)
  • 1/2 t sugar
  • 1 T yeast
  • 1/2 t salt
  1. Dissolve yeast in water with sugar.
  2. Mix flour, honey, oil and salt.
  3. Add yeast mixture.
  4. Mix all together.
  5. Knead a bit in the bowl (the original recipe doesn’t say anything about this. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t).
  6. Either let it rise (I don’t, and the original doesn’t say to), or just use it right away.
  7. I like to bake it on a baking stone, but a regular pan works well too. Bake at 475F.
  8. Depending on the type of pizza (usually for a flat bread pizza), sometimes I’ll bake the crust for 6 minutes, top it, then bake for about 5 more (until the cheese is bubbly). Otherwise, on a hot stone: bake for 8 minutes, on a regular pan: bake for 12 minutes.
