An important element of my homemade pizza creations is this amazing Fresh Pizza Dough Recipe. For a long time I would usually buy store bought dough and then just go from there, but once I discovered this super easy recipe from the Pioneer Woman I haven’t looked back. Did I mention that it only requires 5 ingredients and takes an hour to rise? It’s great because I almost always have all the ingredients on hand for those random pizza craving moments.
Last week I shared my recipe for the Ultimate Homemade Pizza Sauce, so if you are looking to go all out for your pizza night at home I suggest whipping some of that up as well. Your pizza will taste so fresh and delicious you won’t want any other pizza again!
Not gonna lie, I make pizza at home almost once a week now. I mean…who doesn’t love pizza? And there are so many different ways you can top them it never gets boring. There are a few of my favorite ways to make them that I’ll be sharing here soon as well, so don’t forget to check back or sign up for my mailing list!
1 Tsp. Active Dry Yeast
¾ Cup Warm Water
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
¾ Tsp. Kosher Salt
3 Tbs. Olive Oil
First, combine the warm water and yeast in a small bowl. You will let this sit for 10 minutes. It will have little bubbles on top when it’s ready.
While you’re waiting for the yeast mixture add the flour to a large bowl. I don’t own an electric mixer ( I know…shocking!), but if you do use the bowl for that. Then sprinkle in the salt. Now slowly start mixing with either a spatula or your mixer’s paddle attachment. While you’re mixing gradually add the olive oil.
Once the 10 minutes is up you can then add the yeast mixture to the rest of the ingredients. You can stop mixing once everything looks evenly combined. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel or plastic wrap. Let the dough rise for one hour before using.
Side Note: If you want to make multiple pizzas just double the recipe!
