Pizza Dough and Pepperoni Pizza Recipe
This basic Pizza dough recipe can be used for all of your pizza recipes, including your flatbreads and foccaccia breads. Here’s the easy recipe:
- 4 cups flour (more as needed)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 package dry yeast (1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 tsp)
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of warm water
Place flour, sugar and dry yeast into mixer. Mix ingredients together. Slowly add water and olive oil. Knead for around 1 minute and add salt.
Continue kneading dough until a soft dough/ball forms. Add additional 1 tbsp of flour at a time if dough is too wet/sticky.
In large bowl, add 1-2 tsp of olive oil and a dusting of flour. Add dough and slightly knead by hand and form a round ball.

When dough has doubled in size, divide in half and place onto pizza pans that have been dusted with a little flour and cornmeal.
