Pizza is on my top five list of favorite foods. And likely it’s on your list too. So my Alternative Styles podcast and Super Easy YouTube channel co-host, Jesse Brune is giving me the lowdown on a super easy homemade pizza dough recipe. Once made it’s up to you to add whatever toppings you want. This works for a red sauce base or yummy “white” pizza sans sauce.
Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe
We all know pizza is delicious and there’s something – it’s also a fun activity to do with your partner, friends, and kids. Now that the weather’s getting colder, it’s nice to have a home-cooked recipe that everyone loves.
Folks can get intimidated by the dough, but this #supereasyrecipe will help you get over your fear and get you making something really tasty in no time flat.
Super Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 ounce of active dry yeast
3/4 cup of warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
*Preheat your oven to 500 F
*Pour warm water into a large bowl and sprinkle the yeast on top. Let it sit approximately 5 minutes or until the yeast starts to foam
*Now add your olive oil and sugar to the water and yeast. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, and garlic powder together.
*Slowly mix in the flour, salt, and garlic powder into the wet ingredients. When the dough begins to thicken, use your hands to knead the dough into a ball
*Place your ball of dough into a bowl and lightly coat with olive oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to sit at room temperature for 45 minutes or until the dough doubles in size
*Lightly coat your sheet tray with non-stick baking spray, and lightly dust the surface you are working on with flour.
*Take the dough out of the bowl and place it onto the floured surface.
*Knead your dough before rolling it out to fit the sheet tray. Put the dough on your sheet and spread pizza sauce on the top followed by the cheese. Add toppings of your choosing (pepperoni, black olives, mushrooms, onions etc.)
*Place your pizza in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown
*Remove pizza from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before using a pizza cutter to slice your pizza. *In-joy!*
