Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 pkg. active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups sifted flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar


Sprinkle yeast over warm water; stir to dissolve. Add 2 cups flour, salt and sugar. Beat thoroughly, then stir in remaining flour. Turn onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth elastic, about 10 minutes, adding more flour as needed to keep dough from sticking. Place in greased bowl and turn dough over to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Punch down, turn onto board and knead just long enough to force out bubbles. Divide in half. Roll each half; pat and stretch over an oiled 12-inch round pizza pan. Add your favorite pizza toppings and cheese.

Bake pizza in 450° oven about 15 minutes or until cheese topping has melted and crust edges have browned.

So easy, So good, Member Terri_Lumpkin

I made this recipe using 2 cups of whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour. I used my kitchenaid mixer paddle for the first part and my dough hook to knead it. It came out perfect! I baked my pizza on a pizza stone that was heated to 550F for 10 minutes. It made 2 large sized thin crust pizzas with a thin crispy chewy crust. That fed my husband, my self, our 17yr old son and 3 of his friends! I recommend trying this one if you have never made dough before. It was so easy and so....good! Plus I made 2 for less then the price of our usual large vegetarian and I added Italian sausage on one for the boys!
