Fool Proof Pizza Dough

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 1 Large or 2 Medium Pizzas


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 cups flour


  1. In a large bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook, Mix the water, oil, yeast and salt.
  2. Add the flour gradually until a soft dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  3. The exact flour amount will vary so go by the touch and feel of the dough versus the exact cup measurements in the recipe. The dough should be soft and smooth.
  4. Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes (more like 5-6 minutes if kneading by hand or if using whole wheat flour).
  5. Let the dough rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Shape the dough into pizza(s), spread with sauce and toppings, and bake 20 mins or until golden.


This recipe doubles really well. If doubling, use double the amount for all the ingredients. Keep an eye on the flour if increasing the recipe. You want a soft, smooth dough – not too sticky and definitely not dry.

This can be used for appitisers such as filled pockets with cheese & veg, lunchbox fillers or as a main for pizza, calzones, Souflee, Stromboli & many more!

    I have always wanted a pizza dough recipe as I always buy the dough (for $2)ready made from the store and just store it in the fridge and roll it and add my ingredients.
