Basic pizza dough


Sometimes we need basic recipes, like basic pizza dough. Here is a simple dough recipe with easy directions and links to some of our favorite pizzas.





In a medium size mixing bowl mix warm water and yeast.

Next add 1 cup of flour and salt then mix.

Add the rest of the flour to the mixture and slowly knead the dough.

Form the dough into a small ball and tightly cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

Put the bowl in a warm area and let it rest for about an hour

Remove the dough and knead for a few minutes.

Put it back in the bowl and let it rest for another 1/2 hour.

Cooking note: Sometimes the dough can stick like crazy to the sides of the bowl. So sometimes I use a little oil to grease the sides.


3 cups of flour (plus a little extra for rolling it out)

1 package dry-yeast

1-cup warm water

2 1/2 -teaspoon kosher salt
