Total Time30 minutes


  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 1/2 - 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Optional
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder, Optional


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, stir the yeast and sugar into the warm water until completely dissolved.  Allow mixture to sit and proof for 10 minutes, until foamy.
  • Add the salt and olive oil to the yeast mixture.  Begin adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time, stirring after each addition.
  • When the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl and is no longer sticky, knead the dough for 3 minutes in the bowl or on a well floured surface.
  • Roll or pat the dough out into a large circle about 1/4 inch thick, and place on oiled pizza pan.
  • Bake crust for 5 minutes.  Remove crust from oven, and top as desired.  Bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Optional: In a small bowl, microwave the butter and garlic. Remove pizza from oven and brush with the garlic butter, place pizza under broiler for 1-2 minutes, until crust is golden brown.


NOTE:  As with most of my recipes, you MUST spoon and level the flour for this recipe.  If you do not, the dry to wet ingredient ratio will be off, resulting in a dry crust.
NOTE:  This dough is able to be frozen for up to three months.  If you make a double batch, divide the dough in half before freezing.  Place each ball of dough into a separate freezer safe bag, and seal, squeezing out all of the air.  Thaw dough in the refrigerator overnight (8-10 hours) before using.
