Quick and easy pizza dough, you’ll need:

  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In large bowl, stir yeast and sugar into the warm water and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it looks creamy.
  3. When yeast is frothy, add flour, salt and oil, and stir until well mixed.It will be loose and kind of messy looking. That’s ok. No need to form a smooth ball or anything.
  4. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and roll or pat into one 12″ crust or 4 individual crusts.
  6. Transfer to a pizza stone or a lightly oiled pan.

Bake at 450 for 15-20 minutes (large pizza) or 10-15 minutes (smaller pizzas).
