Homemade Pizza Crust for Beginners

Homemade Pizza Crust for Beginners

This easy pizza dough recipe is great for beginners and produces a soft homemade pizza crust. Skip the pizza delivery because you only need 6 basic ingredients to begin! This is my go-to pizza dough recipe. It was published on my blog 6 years ago and after making it for the millionth time, I decided it’s time for an update with a video tutorial and clearer recipe instructions. Plus, many of you said you want to conquer your fear of yeast this year! Consider this your starting guide and refer back to it often.

Follow these basic instructions for a thick, crisp, and chewy pizza crust at home. The recipe yields enough pizza dough for two 12-inch pizzas and you can freeze half of the dough for later.

Ingredients:

                   1 and 1/3 cups (320ml) warm water (between 100-110°F, 38-43°C)

                   2 and 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Platinum instant yeast (1 standard packet)*

                   1 Tablespoon (13g) granulated sugar

                   2 Tablespoons (30ml) olive oil

                   3/4 teaspoon salt

                   3 and 1/2 cups (440g) all-purpose flour, plus more for hands and surface

                   sprinkle of cornmeal for dusting the pan

Directions:

1.       Prepare the dough: Whisk the warm water, yeast, and granulated sugar together in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with a dough hook or paddle attachment. Cover and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

2.        Add the olive oil, salt, and flour. Beat on low speed for 2 minutes. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. With lightly floured hands, knead the dough for 3-4 minutes (for a visual, watch me do it in the video above!). The dough can be a little too heavy for a mixer to knead it, but you can certainly use the mixer on low speed instead. After kneading, the dough should still feel a little soft. Poke it with your finger – if it slowly bounces back, your dough is ready to rise. If not, keep kneading.
