If you have a large mixer, this is so easy and the mixer even does the kneading for you. Our family makes homemade pizza almost once a week, its so easy!

Directions

  1. Put water in mixer bowl and sprinkle yeast over water to dissolve.
  2. Mix water and yeast with whisk attachment until foamy.
  3. Add Olive Oil, Salt, Oregano and Honey and whisk together until well blended.
  4. Add 1 Cup of Flour and mix together.
  5. Remove whisk attachment scraping dough mixture into bowl and attach bread hook to mixer.
  6. Add another Cup of Flour and mix on low speed until well incorporated and dough is not "sticky". If dough is too sticky, add the additonal 1/4 cup (or more) of flour until it resembles bread dough.
  7. Mix dough on medium speed for 5-7 minutes until it is elastic and smooth.
  8. Remove dough ball from mixer and place in an oiled bowl large enough for the dough to double in size.Cover bowl with a damp cloth and allow dough to rise in a warm place, away from drafts.
  9. When dough is doubled in size (15-20 minutes), remove from bowl and punch down dough, roll out to desired thickness and shape.
  10. Drizzle Olive Oil on rolled out dough, sprinkle with additonal Dried Oregano and Kosher Salt, and top as desired.
  11. Bake on a perforated pizza pan in a very hot (500 degree) oven. Start pizza on bottom rack for 5 minutes. Using a pizza peal, slide the peal underneath the pan and move the pizza to the oven's top rack. Continue baking until crust is browned, and toppings are heated (5-7 minutes more).
  12. Using the pizza peal, remove the pizza pan from the oven carefully. Place pan on a heat proof surface, then use the pizza peal to remove the pizza from the pan. Allow pizza to cool for 2 minutes on the peal, then slice as desired using a pizza cutter.

Flavor was good, rather easy. I would suggest that if your cooking on a non perforated pan you should pre bake the crust a bit. Was hard to get crisp before toppings singed at 500 deg in 10 min.

This dough worked out very well. It turned out crispy and the oregano gave it a nice flavor without being too overpowering. Next time, I'm going to add a little parmesan cheese to try to enhance the flavor a little more. All in all an easy and flavorful pizza dough recipe.

Nice pizza dough. I made it as written and didn't have any problems. I didn't follow the pizza making directions as I used my own recipe. It turned out fine. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2013.
