Updated: Jan 6, 2023

A lot of people don't know how to make homemade pizza dough or even how easy it is to make. Honestly, this recipe almost makes going out and buying pre-made dough look even more like the lazy option because of how quick and simple it is.

With six simple ingredients, you will be on your way to eating delicious pizza in no time! Here is how to make homemade pizza dough.

How to Make Homemade Pizza Dough

Ingredients Needed

• 1 package yeast

• 1 cup of warm water

• 1 teaspoon sugar

• 1 teaspoon salt

• 2 tablespoons oil

• 2 1/2 cups flour


Dissolve yeast in water.

Once the yeast is dissolved, stir in the remaining ingredients. Beat vigorously, about 20 strokes.

Allow dough to rest for five minutes.

While the dough is resting, preheat the oven to 425°.

After resting, divide the dough in half.

On lightly greased baking sheets, pat out dough. Add sauce, meat, veggies, cheese, etc. Bake 20-25 minutes.

Makes 2 pizzas.


This pizza dough makes a perfect crust for my Breakfast Pizza recipe!

If you don't have time to try this recipe now and you have a Trader Joe's near you, I highly recommend their premade pizza dough.
