  • stand mixer optional


  • ¾ cup warm water 110-130°F
  • 1 teaspoon instant dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour


  • To the bowl of the stand mixer, add the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Stir. Add oil, flour and salt. Mix on speed 2 for 5 minutes. If kneading by hand, add ingredients to a large bowl in the same order. Then mix with a spatula until the dough is crumbly. Lightly flour the counter and knead the dough with your hands for 5-7 minutes.
  • Shape dough into a ball and put in an oiled bowl. Cover with a heavy towel and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • When ready to cook, roll out dough, poke with a fork, and pre-bake at 450°F for 5 minutes. Then add 1 cup of sauce, 1-2 cups of cheese, and toppings. Bake for 10-12 more minutes until cheese is golden brown and bubbly.


To make without a stand mixer, knead on a floured surface for 7 minutes after following the instructions for mixing the ingredients. Then shape into a ball, cover with a towel, and let rise for 30 minutes in a warm place.
