Pizza Crust

Recipe printed from

Recipe from Food Network Magazine



3 ¾ cups flour (white, wheat, or a combination)

1 ½ teaspoons salt

1 1/3 cups warm water

1 tablespoon sugar

1 packet yeast

3 tablespoons olive oil


Whisk flour and salt. Make a well and add the water, sugar, and yeast. When foamy, mix in the olive oil; knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Brush with olive oil, cover in a bowl and let rise until doubled, about and hour and half. Divide into two 1-pound balls. Use one pound per pizza, or more if you like a doughier crust.

Preheat oven to 450°. Stretch and roll dough onto a floured surface. Lay onto parchment paper onto an upside down cookie sheet and top as desired. Bake 8-10 minutes, checking after about 5 minutes to make sure it doesn’t get too brown.
