  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc.)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and olive oil, then knead the dough until smooth and elastic.
  3. Cover the dough and let it rise for about an hour, or until it doubles in size.
  4. Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C) and place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven to heat.
  5. Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness. Transfer it to a pizza peel or another baking sheet dusted with cornmeal.
  6. Spread pizza sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a border for the crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and add your favorite toppings.
  7. Slide the pizza onto the preheated stone or baking sheet in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
  8. Remove the pizza from the oven, let it cool for a minute, then slice and serve hot.
