READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 2 Pizzas




  • Put water in mixer bowl and sprinkle yeast over water to dissolve.
  • Mix water and yeast with whisk attachment until foamy.
  • Add Olive Oil, Salt, Oregano and Honey and whisk together until well blended.
  • Add 1 Cup of Flour and mix together.
  • Remove whisk attachment scraping dough mixture into bowl and attach bread hook to mixer.
  • 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.
  • Mix dough on medium speed for 5-7 minutes until it is elastic and smooth.
  • 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.
  • When dough is doubled in size (15-20 minutes), remove from bowl and punch down dough, roll out to desired thickness and shape.
  • Drizzle Olive Oil on rolled out dough, sprinkle with additonal Dried Oregano and Kosher Salt, and top as desired.
  • 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).
  • 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.
