1 24-inch pizza


  • 2 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup rye flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups water, divided

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour for kneading dough, or as needed


  1. Mix 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, rye flour, and salt together in a bowl.

  2. Pour 1/2 cup water into a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir brown sugar into water until dissolved; add yeast and stir. Let mixture stand until bubbling, about 10 minutes.

  3. Pour yeast mixture into flour mixture.

  4. Pour remaining 1 cup water into a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir olive oil into the warm water; pour over flour mixture. Knead flour mixture, adding more all-purpose flour if dough is sticky, until dough is smooth and holds together.

  5. Form dough into a ball and place in a bowl. Cover bowl with a damp towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  6. Punch dough down and transfer to a floured work surface. Roll or shape dough into desired shape.


Cook's Note:

Instead of using a tomato sauce base, try brushing olive oil on the dough before you add your toppings.

Add your favorite pizza toppings and cook in a 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) preheated oven until cheese is browned, about 15 to 18.
