Growing up, it was pizza night every Friday night at my house. Living in the NJ/NY area, I grew up eating delicious slices of pizza. When I went to Rhode Island for college, I was in for a rude awakening. Sorry, RI – your pizza just does not compare. I even tried deep-dish pizza a few months ago when I was in Chicago for FNCE. It was good, but still, NJ/NY pizza wins overall. (well.. according to me)

I’ve bought the pre-made pizza dough in the refrigerated section of the grocery when I wanted to make pizza at home, but it always becomes tough when rolled out leaving a thin, dense crust.

I enjoy baking, but I admit not the best baker, mainly because I don’t like measuring precisely and also I’m not patient. Like waiting for the dough to rise, I was tempted to keep sneaking a look to check the progress. Plus, baking with yeast can be tricky.

I recently made two batches and my family came over and we all made our own personal pizzas. It’s a fun meal to get everyone involved.

What is your favorite pizza topping?

Homemade Pizza Dough

  • Author: Julie @ RDelicious Kitchen
  • Yield: 2 pounds dough (for 1 large pizza) 1x



  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 (1/4 ounce) packets active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt


  1. Pour warm water into a large bowl; sprinkle with yeast and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk sugar, oil, and salt into yeast mixture. Add flour and stir until a sticky dough forms. Start with a whisk, when you will need to need to stir with a spatula once dough starts to come together.
  3. Transfer dough to another bowl, coated with cooking spray. Cover bowl with a warm damp towel and set aside in a warm place until dough has doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, punch dough down, and gently knead 1 or 2 times before using.
  5. Roll out and top with your favorite toppings.

For best pizza results, bake in the oven at 500 degrees F on a baking stone.
