Here is a recipe that I’ve been using for years now for my own homemade pizza crust from scratch! Don’t be intimidated by making it at home. It’s so easy and is the best crust there is! This is the same crust used in my pepperoni pizza video from a few years back. Enjoy!

What you’ll need:
3/4 cup warm water (about 100*F)
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 cups all-purpose or plain flour
additional oil for greasing

In a large bowl, combine water and sugar and sprinkle yeast on top to re-hydrate. Don’t use too hot of water or you will kill your yeast. After yeast is a bit foamy, add in salt, 1 Tbsp oil and flour. Mix well until it comes together to form a dough. Knead until smooth and all flour is incorporated and dough is no longer sticky, about 3 minutes. Grease a bowl with another tablespoon of oil, coat dough ball with oil and cover with a damp towel. Let rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

To use, grease a pan with more oil, pat dough out using your finger tips to 14″-16″ in diameter. Spread with sauce, top with cheese and toppings and bake in a preheated 450*F oven for 12-14 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melty. Makes (1) 16″ pizza. Enjoy!!

  1. By far the best at home pizza crust recipe I have ever used.It turned out just the way I expected. Can't say that has happened when I have made pizza dough crust before. Love this, it's genius!

  2. I made cheese pizza using your pizza crust recipe, today. It was simple & fast and came out perfectly! Thanks so much! ( I did use a little over 2 cups for the AP flour but I was kneading a tad bit slow & the dough did become sticky. My bad.).

  3. I've search a lot on YouTube to look for a relatively easy pizza dough as I've never made any before. This was my first and I'm glad that it turn out really well. My Brother who was a chef was a bit sceptical abt how easy this was and he concluded that it does taste good. I've made mistake in the water ratio but it's not something that can't be fixed with a bit more flour. Also, we like thinner crust, so we cut it into 2 and made 2 pizza from this dough. All in all, this recipe is a keeper. Thank u very much for sharing!

  4. I tried this recipe, everything went well, my mom loved it, she is 99 , I didn't like it as much, I like the yeasty flavor of Dominoes, straw hat, Shakeys from the old days, But your recipe is ok with me. Thanks bro, I am making it again!

  5. Here's the cups and temperatures in non-american measurements:
    180 ml warm water (about 37.7 °C)
    240 g all-purpose or plain flour (could be up to 300g if the cups are crammed, also I'm not entirely sure about the density of the flour used. @Crouton Crackerjacks, would you mind weighing the cups of flour for me to shed some light on this?^^)

    Oven temperature would be at 232.2 °C.
