Simple Pizza Dough

This is a simple pizza dough recipe that can be mixed up in a few minutes by hand or with a stand mixer, tossed within a few hours, and baked in minutes into a delicious pizza.

Number of servings: 
2 10" pizzas

350 grams All-Purpose flour (about 1 ¾ cups)

1 tsp Active-dry yeast

1 tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Kosher salt

1 cup Warm water

  1. In a measuring cup, stir in sugar, yeast, and warm water and let rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Tare out a mixing bowl on a kitchen scale and add 350 grams of All-Purpose flour and a teaspoon of salt.
  3. Mix in yeast and water and knead into a dough ball.  Be sure to add water if dough it too try and flour if dough is too wet/sticky.
  4. Continue kneading for about 20 minutes.  Occasionally, pull off a piece of dough and stretch it as thin as possible without tearing.  If light easily passes through this stretched dough piece, the dough is ready for the rise.
  5. Form a tight, round dough ball. Allow the dough to rise, covered, for 1-3 hours.
    Optionally: allow the dough to rise overnight in the refridgerator and return to room temperature for an hour on the counter.
  6. Punch down the risen dough ball and separate into to small, evenly-sized balls.  Allow the dough balls to rest for 10 minutes before making a pizza.
