I absolutely love this pizza dough recipe--I would make this one again (something I don't usually do). This makes enough for 3 pizzas. Recipe courtesy of www.cheapcooking.com. Serving size is estimated.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine water and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the sugar, salt, and oil.
  3. Add half the flour and mix.
  4. Add remaining flour and knead until smooth.
  5. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and put in a warm spot to rise for about half an hour.
  6. On cold days, briefly warm your oven, then turn it off and put the bowl in there. Leave the lightbulb on to provide a bit of warming.
  7. Punch the dough down and split into 2 to 3 pieces depending on how big you want your pizzas and how thick you like your crusts.
  8. Press onto a greased cookie sheet or pizza pan until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick for thin crusts.
  9. Spread your favorite sauce, sprinkle on grated mozzarella, add toppings, and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.
