Materials

  • 1 cup water at 110 Degrees
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil plus a little extra
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Mix water, honey, and olive oil in a bowl. Make sure the liquid is between 105℉ and 110℉ before lightly sprinkling the yeast on top.
  • Wait 5 minutes until the yeast has bloomed and is frothy.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups flour as well as the salt to the yeast mixture. Mix thoroughly. Keep adding flour in 1/4 cup increments until dough is smooth but still a little tacky.
  • Knead for 3-5 minutes.
  • Form the dough into a ball, coat with a light layer of olive oil, and set into a large bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and seal with a rubber band.
  • Let the pizza dough rise until it has doubled in size (about 1 1/2 hours).
  • Right before you're ready to use it, knead it 1 or 2 more times and then it's ready to be stretched and used in your favorite recipes.
