Cuisine Italian


  • 1 .25 ounce active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in flour, salt, and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal.
  • Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
  • The dough will keep in the refrigerator for a few days - but is best when baked after preparing.
