  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (105 F to 110 F)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (vegan-friendly)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more as needed)
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast, warm water, and sugar, mixing gently until combined. Let the mixture rest for about 5 minutes or until bubbly.
  2. Add the olive oil, flour, and salt, adding more flour as necessary until it forms a soft dough. The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl and feel just a little sticky.
  3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 to 7 minutes or until elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let sit in a warm place for about 1 hour or until​ the dough has doubled in bulk.
  5. Once the dough has doubled in bulk, punch down the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for several minutes until smooth and elastic.
  6. Use the dough immediately or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze until ready.

Tips for Perfect Dough

  • If your yeast does not bubble when combined with water and sugar, you may have “dead” yeast. Or the water is too hot.
  • For a healthier option, substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour.

I've been making pizza since I was a child when I would watch my mother and grandfather make pizzas in our family restaurant. I would help them by making pizza boxes, stretching the dough and adding toppings, which became one of my favorite activities.
