Pizza Dough

Whenever we make pizza I LOVE, I mean I LOVE, making homemade dough to go along with the pizza. It is so simple, fast, and you really cannot mess it up; at least with my recipe you cannot. The crust is fluffy, and sweet (not over powering but settle). I forgot how lovely, easy, and delicious homemade pizza dough could be; this is because while we were moving we would just buy Whole Food Market pizza since it was 2/$20.00 and made with good quality ingredients. No excuses! Homemade is the way to go! Make my simple homemade dough and follow along with the video to get the BEST crust ever!

You Will Need:

5 Cups Organic All-Purpose Flour
3 tsp Organic Butter, melted
2 tsp Real Salt (real salt brand)
2 Cups of warm water (110-115 degrees)
4 tbsp Organic Honey 
4 1/2 tsp Active Yeast (Bob's Red Mill)

Place warm water, honey and yeast in a bowl

Whisk lightly and allow to bloom for 5 minutes.. It will get nice and bubbly

Place dry ingredients with softened or melted butter into a separate bowl, set aside

Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until dough forms; knead for a couple minutes to pull together (I use my hands not a stand mixer-but you can definitely use a stand mixer)

Grease a bowl, and top of dough- allow to rise 1 hour or until double in size

Here is my finished dough- punch down and knead a couple times, roll out and use the dough for your own personal pizza.

I have been asked how I get my crust so thick and fluffy- watch below!
