All Purpose Pizza Dough


As you can see, we didn't use this dough for pizza this time. We used it for Stromboli, but this is the best recipe I've found for recipes needing a fairly easy, rising dough. We usually use this dough recipe for Pizza, Stromboli, and Scones.

1 C Warm Water
1 Tbsp (or 1 package) Yeast
1 Tbsp Sugar
1.5 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Oil
2 3/4 - 3 1/4 C Flour

1. In a mixer (or bowl) combine your water, yeast, and sugar. Wait five minutes and allow yeast to activate (get foamy).

2. Add remaining ingredients, adding flour a little at a time until you have a moderately-sticky dough.

3. Knead dough (adding flour as needed--no pun intended!) for about 200 turns. I let my KitchenAide run for between 5 - 10 minutes.

4. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

5. Make your pizza!

For Pizza Crust:

1. Preheat oven to 425.

2. On a slightly floured board, roll dough out to fit your pan(s). Place dough in/on your pan(s).

3. Bake for 6 minutes. Prick any big bubbles with a fork.

4. Bake 6 minutes more. Add pizza toppings and bake until the cheese is melted and toppings are hot.

This is enough dough for 1 big 15 x 11 pan, or two 12" pans.
