Pizza Dough Recipe – Best Ever Homemade Pizza!

Ingredients: Gather 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast, 1 cup of warm water, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Preparation: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Make a well in the center and pour in the warm water and olive oil.

Mixing: Stir the ingredients until a dough forms. If it's too sticky, add more flour gradually. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it's smooth and elastic.

Resting: Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rest in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Preheat: Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C) while the dough is rising. If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to heat up as well.

Rolling: Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into two equal portions. Roll out each portion into your desired thickness on a floured surface. For a thinner crust, roll it out thinner.

Assembly: Transfer the rolled-out dough onto a baking sheet or pizza peel lined with parchment paper. Add your favorite sauce, cheese, and toppings.
