I love home made pizza and this recipe for fresh pizza dough makes it very easy to make pizza at home.
I know some people shy away from recipes that have yeast in them, as I did at one point, but I am here to tell you it’s easy to use when making this recipe for pizza dough.
The recipe is made up of water, yeast, salt, sugar, olive oil and flour and it yields enough for 4 pizzas. It keeps in the refrigerator for 12 days, so if you are worried that 4 doughs might be too much, you don’t have to use them all on the day you make the pizza dough. You could also cut the recipe in half and have 2 pizza doughs.
- 2-3/4 cups lukewarm water
- 1-1/2 tablespoon granulated yeast (2 packets)
- 1-1/2 tablespoons salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, or in a large bowl using a wooden spoon, mix the yeast, salt, sugar, and olive oil with the water.
- Mix in the flour in your stand mixer being careful not to over mix. If you are not using a machine, wet your hands in order to incorporate the bit of flour by hand.
- Transfer dough to large bowl and brush with olive oil. Cover the bowl (not airtight) and allow the dough to rest at room temperature until dough rises and collapses or is flat on top. This will take approximately 2 hours. You can use the dough right after the first rise but I find it easier to work with when the dough is cold.
- Refrigerate in a lidded (not airtight) container and use over the next 12 days.
You can easily cut this recipe in half.

Thanks for sharing your recipe. I make my own dough all the time and found a link somewhere through pinterest on freezing the dough – that is what I have been doing lately – you just take it out the morning you want to use it and let it rise all day. This is a real time saver for me and I prefer to make my own pizza over ordering out – my kids might disagree with that though.
Kimberlee, Thanks for the tip. I will definitely be freezing my dough in the future.
