Well, making pizza at home always seems so intimidating. Especially if you’re planning to make your own pizza crust dough. Don’t worry, using this pizza crust recipe, the process is actually easy, quick and fun. One of my favorite pizzas I’ve made is this Antipasto Pizza recipe, or you can use it to make these Pretzel Bites.

This recipe makes literally the perfect pizza dough! There are no hidden tricks nor any tricky steps to be aware of, just combine all ingredients and in 15 minutes you’ll have the dough rolled and ready to add toppings on.

With so many different types of pizza crusts out there, from really thin we used for Tortilla Pizza to the deep pan, thick ones,  it is so difficult to choose a favorite. My favorite pizza crust is soft and pillowy on the edges and a bit thinner in the middle.

This pizza crust recipe delivers the best pizza ever!

How to make the best Pizza Crust?

Start by proofing the yeast – mixing together warm water, sugar and yeast and allow the mixture to sit for about 5 minutes untuil it’s bubbly.

One the yeast is proofed, all you have to do is add olive oil, flour and a pinch of salt and mix to combine.

Transfer the sticky dough mixture to a floured surface and knead for a couple of minutes. I always prefer manually kneading because it only takes a couple of minutes and I don’t have to clean anything else that the surface. No mixer bowls  or anything.

Allow the dough to sit and rise for 10 minutes and you’re ready to roll it and add topping on it.
