This recipe came from my nonna who immigrated from Italy at 40 and members of my family have been making it for years. It is the best! I hope you enjoy it. My fiance said I should sell it! Lol!

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups hot water

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons quick-rise yeast

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed

Directions

  1. Beat water, olive oil, yeast, sugar, and salt together with an electric mixer until evenly combined, about 2 minutes. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon after each addition, until dough almost comes away from the sides of the bowl.

  2. Knead the dough with your hands until soft and smooth. Lightly oil a bowl and place dough in the bowl, flipping to coat all of the dough. Let dough rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Water should be hot-to-the-touch on your wrist before mixing into dough.

I have let the dough rise much longer than 5 to 10 minutes and just punch it down when I am ready to use it.

To bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll dough onto a baking sheet or pizza stone and add your favorite sauce and toppings. Bake pizza until dough is cooked through and cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes.

I like to make pepper, mushroom, and bacon topping. Fry 1 green and 1 red bell pepper in olive oil until soft but still a little firm. Then fry the mushrooms until cooked. Fry bacon as well. Place peppers, alternating the colors, and mushrooms on top; finish with bacon.
