- Mix flour, water, yeast, olive oil, salt, and sugar in a bowl; knead together.
- Let dough sit for just a few minutes (it might turn out better if you actually let it rise; but I don’t and it still turns out fine!), then roll it out to whatever shape you want and place on a pizza stone or cookie sheet.
- If desired, brush extra olive oil around the edges of the crust, then sprinkle with garlic (or herbs) for a flavored crust!
- Spread pizza sauce over the crust dough, then sprinkle on cheese and desired toppings.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
**Update: I've been continuing to make this recipe for a couple of years now, almost on a weekly basis. I do usually let the dough rise for about an hour now, as it does turn out much better that way. For a quicker option, I've been turning to the Thin Crust recipe I found. And, as another alternative (which I need to make more often because it's yummy), try these Delicious Calzones.
Hi there! My name is Dana and I live in West Michigan with my husband, Tom and our dog Happy Gilmore. I created this space as a place to share the things I learn along this journey I call life. I work in marketing and I'm a sort of Jane of All Trades, interested in all things nature, gardening, cooking, exploring and learning new things. This blog is a conglomeration of my interests, hobbies, life and life lessons. Thanks for stopping by!
