Here’s a step-by-step guide to making homemade pizza crust, along with the ingredient list:

Easy Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe Ingredients:

2 ½ cups warm water

¼ cup sugar

3 teaspoons instant yeast

¼ cup vegetable oil

6 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons salt


Activate the Yeast:

In a small bowl, dissolve 3 teaspoons of instant yeast in 2 ½ cups of warm water.

Add ¼ cup of sugar to the yeast mixture and stir. Let it sit for a few minutes until it becomes bubbly and frothy on top.

Mix the Dough:

In a large mixing bowl, combine 6 cups of all-purpose flour, ¼ cup of vegetable oil, and 2 teaspoons of salt.

Pour in the activated yeast mixture and stir with a firm spatula until the dough comes together.

Rest the Dough:

Allow the dough to rest on the counter for about 5 minutes. This helps the gluten relax, making the dough easier to stretch and shape.

Prepare Your Surface:

Rub your work surface (and your hands) with a few tablespoons of olive oil and a little bit of flour. This prevents sticking and ensures a crispy texture.

Shape the Dough:

You have a few options:

Stretch it in the air.

Use a rolling pin.

Pat it with your hands.

Make sure not to overwork the dough.

Bake Your Pizza:

Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).

Add your favorite toppings to the shaped pizza crust.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
