Pizza Dough - Recipe

I have given my favorite Pizza Sauce Recipe and now I will give a Pizza Dough Recipe.  There are tons of recipes out there for Pizza Dough.  Normally we just use the Wal-Mart brand packet of pizza dough flour and make that from scratch.  However, I have about 3 recipes left from the Pioneer Woman's Cookbook with her dough being one of the three.  Made the dough Monday night and it was super easy, fun, and a hit.  I will make it again because I got heavy handed with the Olive Oil and made the dough kind of gummy.  Best part with the recipe you can make two pizza or freeze half of the dough for another night.

Pizza Dough Recipe - Pioneer Woman

1 teaspoon Active Dry Or Instant Yeast
4 cups All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
⅓ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil

To Make The Crust (enough to make 2 pizzas):

-Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water and set aside.
-In a mixer, combine flour and salt.
-With the mixer running on low speed (with paddle attachment), drizzle in 
  olive oil until combined with flour.
-Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.
-Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball.
-Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then cover the bowl with a moist kitchen towel and set in a warm place to rise for 1-2 hrs, OR cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Create Pizza:

-Preheat oven to 500 degrees per PW.
-When ready to create pizza, drizzle pan with olive oil and spread dough out to the size you want/need.
-Then this is where the fun beings.  Can check out the Pioneer Woman for all her different pizza toppings,, or use my favorite Pizza Sauce.  Here is a picture of our Monday Night Pizza....traditional but oh so good! 

*Okay scratch the picture part.  Don't have one from our pizza.  However click HERE for better pictures of how to make, create, and top your pizza.  Pesto-Mozzarella Pizza is my favorite but my boys are through and through meat lovers.  Enjoy!!*


  1. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. We have been searching for a good one and have literally FAILED. They have turned out so GROSS!

  2. Bekkielynn - you are more than welcome! It is all thanks to PW :) We have tried several to and just were yuck. I think next time we will add some seasoning to the dough because we like seasoned pizze crust. Other wise this is a good tasting and easy to make Pizza Dough.
