Pizza is a well-known and beloved food from people around the world. It has a long history, originating from Italy. Over time, it has developed into a dish with countless topping and taste options, making it a top selected meal for any event or gathering.
Making a pizza is not actually that difficult. One of the keys to a delicious pizza is a perfectly made crust, even though pre-made crusts can be a convenient option that you can find in any store or supermarket. But there's no comparison to the taste and texture of a crust made from scratch.
Here's a simple and easy recipe for delicious homemade pizza dough
Pizza Dough Recipe
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup warm water
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in warm water. Let sit for 10 minutes or until the mixture becomes foamy.
- Add the flour, salt, and olive oil to the yeast mixture and stir until a dough forms.
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours.
- After the dough has risen, turn it out onto a floured surface and divide it into two equal parts. Roll each part into a ball and let it rest for 10 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C) and roll out the dough to your desired thickness.
- Add your favorite toppings and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. (Topping idea: Seafood Pizza)
