Cuisine Italian
Servings 1 pound


  • ¾ c. lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp. instant yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour plus more for kneading
  • 1 tsp. salt


  • Pour the water into a medium bowl. Sprinkle the yeast and sugar over the water and let stand until the yeast is dissolved and foamy, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the flour and salt. Mix with a stiff spatula or wooden spoon until floury, shaggy dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a work surface and knead until it forms a smooth, slightly tacky ball that springs back when you poke it, 5 to 8 minutes. If the dough sticks to your hands like bubblegum, add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it’s easier to work with; avoid adding too much flour if possible.
  • Cover the dough with the upside-down bowl or a clean kitchen towel and let sit while you prepare the pizza toppings, about 10 minutes.

      Hi Grammy Wanda,
      Thank you for watching and checking out this recipe! You will want to heat your oven as high as you can, and bake the pizza for about 10 minutes or until it has the desired look you are going for – golden and bubbly! Please let me know if you have any more questions and also how this recipe works for you! Thank you for being awesome!!!!!
