Homemade Pizza Dough

Have you ever made homemade pizza?

I mean real homemade pizza right down to the pizza dough?

No, me either until a few nights ago. 

WOW, what a difference fresh dough makes! I will NEVER buy

prepackaged dough again. It’s SUPER easy!!

The hardest part is waiting for the dough to rise. 😉

The recipe I found was a little intimidating at first because it calls for a 

bread machine & of course I don’t own one. Reading through the comments,

I’m not the only one without a bread machine. Luckily for me a couple pioneers tried

making this dough by hand or with their mixer & bread hook.


The bread hook did all the work. No bread machine or kneading involved.

There is enough dough to make 1 really large or 2 medium size pizzas.

I chose 1 really large pizza, the size of my pizza pan & still had a little left over.

Before adding toppings, use a fork to poke little holes around the dough to keep from bubbling.


1 cup water
3 cups bread flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. yeast

Place all ingredients in your kitchen-aid mixer, attach bread hook. 

Turn on low until dough is pliable & elastic, rather than sticky.

Let rise for about 60-70 minutes. Dough should double in size.
