Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe

The Best easy Homemade Pizza Dough recipe is a family favorite for Pizza Fridays.

Pizza Dough Recipe is an easy homemade recipe from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

Have you ever made Homemade Pizza Dough?

Pizza nights are always the best night of the week in our house! 

My husband grew up throwing pizzas in his Aunt and Uncles pizza shop, so he always loves to show off his moves! 

As for me I will stick to a rolling pin with a stretch and shape technique to keep the dough from landing on the ceiling or in my hair! 

This dough's chewy yet crisp around the edges and holds up well to toppings.

Best of all it's so easy to make. 

Most of the time I make the dough the night before and allow it to rest in the fridge for the next day. 

This dough makes 2 large pizzas so if you aren't feeding a football team like our house feel free to divide the dough in half and refrigerate half for calzones or hot pockets for a day or two later.

Just in case you are  wondering about the tasty recipe for the Broccoli Ham And Cheese Pockets pictured above I will be posting that tomorrow!

They are defiantly worth coming back for.


Warm water, yeast and honey to make homemade Pizza Dough Recipe.

In a large mixing bowl fitted with a dough hook add:
  • 1 1/3 cup Warm Water under 110 degrees
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Honey
  • 1 package Active Dry Yeast 
Allow mixture to sit until foamy, about 8-10 minutes.

Flour, Salt and Flour in a mixing bowl for Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe.

Add:
  • 3 3/4 cup All-Purpose Flour or Bread Flour or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt

About 10 minutes.

Place dough in a bowl oiled with olive oil to rise in a cool place for 1 1/2-2 hours or until doubled in size.

Divide dough into 2 large pizzas or 6 individual pizzas or calzones and shape into round balls. 

Cover dough with a cool damp towel or plastic wrap and allow to rest for 30 minutes. (At this point dough can be refrigerated for later use.)

Shape dough to desired size and place in a lightly greased pan, brush dough with olive oil, add desired toppings and bake in a 450 degree oven until brown around the edges 12-15 minutes.

  9. If I want a crispier dough, can it be pre-baked before adding the toppings?

    1. Hi Karla, You can pre bake it or rolling the dough thinner and brushing the edges with a little olive oil can also help crisp it up!
