01 Information
  • Grade easy
  • Serving 2 servings
  • Prep Time 125 Mins
  • Cook Time 15 Mins
  • Total Time 140 Mins
02 Ingredients
    • 3 tbsp. cornmeal, for dusting
    • 2 tbsp. olive oil
    • 1 tsp. salt
    • 1 tbsp. honey
    • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/4 cups warm water
    • 1 packet active yeast
03 Method
  • Step 1
    In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, combine the yeast, sugar, and water, stir for just a second. Let sit for 5-10 minutes or until the yeast is dissolves and foams.
  • Step 2
    Add the 3 1/2 cups of flour, salt, and olive oil to the mixer. On the ‘stir’ setting or the lowest setting on your mixer, allow the mixture to combine for 1 minute.
  • Step 3
    When ingredients are mixed, knead dough for 8-9 minutes on the low-medium speed. If the dough is wet, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time (up to 4 tablespoons) until it comes together. The dough should be smooth when it’s done.
  • Step 4
    When touched with a finger the dough shouldn’t be sticky. Shape the dough into a ball and place in a large oiled mixing bowl. Swirl the dough ball around so all sides are coated with the oil. Cover with plastic wrap.
  • Step 5
    Heat the dryer on the low heat setting for 5-7 minutes. Turn the dryer off, place the mixing bowl in the dryer, close the door. Do not turn the dryer back on.
  • Step 6
    Allow the dough to rise. Depending on the type of yeast used, your dough will take 1-2 hours to rise.
  • Step 7
    When the dough has risen, punch the air out of the dough. Divide into two even dough balls. Roll into a ball and allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes. If you do not plan to use the dough right away, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate till needed.
  • Step 8
    Remove the dough from the fridge 30 minutes prior to using. You can also freeze the dough balls to use at a later time. See notes for instructions.
  • Step 9
    Position two racks near the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 475ºF. Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, flatten dough to a 12-inch circle.
  • Step 10
    Create a lip or rim by thickening the dough around the crust portion. This keeps the sauce in instead of running over the sides. Let dough rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Step 11
    Top with pizza sauce and desired toppings. Bake pizza for 10-15 minutes. You can also turn the broiler on for the last minute of cooking if you’d like your edges and cheese to be all bubbly.
  • Step 12
    Enjoy the pizza while it’s hot. Leftovers can be covered and stored in the refrigerator.
