This recipe is enough for 2 large pizzas.


  • 1-1/2 cup warm (105-110 °F) water ( around 30 seconds in the microwave )
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2-1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast ( 1 package )
  • 4 cups app-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil


  1. In a small bowl whisk the water, sugar, and yeast together, Let it sit for about 10 minutes or until it froths up.
  2. In the bowl of the mixer mix together the flour, salt, olive oil, and yeast mixture with the dough hook for about 5 minutes or until the dough is soft and elastic. It is done when it comes clean down from the side.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and put it into an oiled bowl. Also, rub the dough with oil and cover it with a foil wrap or a lid, and refrigerate. You can freeze the dough if you don’t use it the same day.


  • Preheat the oven to the highest temperature it can provide.
  • If we bake on 550 °F, the pizza is done in 8 – 10 minutes.
