  • 12 ounces water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Heat water to 110-115 degrees.
  • Add yeast and sugar to water and stir to mix. Set aside and allow yeast to activate.
  • Place flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Add yeast mixture to the flour.
  • Using a dough hook, mix the flour and yeast on medium speed for 5-6 minutes until a smooth, elastic dough forms.
  • If the dough is too sticky, add additional flour a tablespoon at a time.
  • Place the dough in a bowl and cover with a towel.
  • Allow the dough to double in size.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • After dough has doubled, place it on a well-floured surface. Knead it 4-5 times and divide in half.
  • Take one piece and begin stretching it by hand starting in the middle and pushing the dough outward.
  • Once the dough is 6-7 inches in diameter, place on a greased pizza pan and continue stretching until the dough covers the pan.
  • Add your favorite toppings.
  • Place the pan in preheated oven and bake until the crust is golden brown.
