1 large crust


  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 2 cups bread flour, plus more for dusting

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl. Let stand until creamy, about 5 minutes.

  2. Combine bread flour, olive oil, sugar, salt, and yeast mixture in a mixing bowl; stir well to combine. Beat until a stiff dough has formed. Cover the bowl; let rise at room temperature until dough doubles in volume, about 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Form dough into a round and roll out into a thin crust. Cover with your favorite sauce and toppings.

  5. Bake pizza in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes.
