Easy Pizza Dough


1 C. warm water (110 degrees F.)
2 1/4 t. Active Dry Yeast (1 packet)
1 t. granulated sugar
2 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 t. kosher salt
1/4 t. garlic powder


  1. Place warm water, yeast and sugar into bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attachment attached.
  2. Mix gently then let sit until doubled in size, about 5 minutes. 
  3. With mixer on low, add flour, olive oil, salt and garlic salt. 
  4. Scrape sides of bowl and let mixer knead dough for 5 minutes. 
  5. Dough should clean the sides of the bowl. Add sprinkles of flour or water if needed to get the bowl cleaned while kneading. 
  6. After 5 minutes of kneading, remove dough from mixing bowl with floured hands, and transfer to a floured countertop. 
  7. Fold dough over itself a couple times then form into a round ball.
  8. When ready, place dough onto a pizza pan, pressing or rolling to a 12 inch round, or larger for a more thin crust. 
  9. Spoon pizza sauce of your choice over dough leaving a 1 inch border around edges. 
  10. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and toppings of your choice. 
  11. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. for 15 minutes, until crust is cooked through. 
  12. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
