  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water 110 degrees F
  • 1 tsp rapid rise yeast *see note
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 10 ounces
  • 1.5 tsp salt


  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • Your favorite toppings (nutrition info includes 1/2 lb of sausage)


Preheat oven to 500 degrees

  1. If you have a baking stone (highly recommended), preheat it in the oven now.

Make the dough

  1. Put warm water in a large bowl and add yeast. Stir to dissolve.
  2. Add flour and salt to the bowl and mix to form a shaggy dough.
  3. Move the dough to a clean work surface. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. It gets less sticky as your work with it, and will still feel slightly tacky when done. But if it sticks like bubble gum, add flour 1 tablespoon at a time.
  4. Set dough aside and prep pizza toppings.

Roll dough & make pizzas

  1. Grab 2 pieces of parchment paper. Divide the dough in half. Stretch or roll each half into 8-10" circles, on the parchment paper (I prefer using a rolling pin). If it resists stretching or shrinks back, let it rest for 5 more minutes.
  2. Cover in sauce, add toppings.


  1. Slide pizza onto baking stone while still on the parchment paper.
  2. Rotate pizza after 5 minutes and remove parchment paper* (see note).
  3. Bake for another 3-5 minutes until the crust is browned and the cheese looks perfect.
