Homemade pizza dough is fun to make and delicious! This recipe uses only 5 ingredients and is my familys favorite. Great recipe that comes out perfect every time and creates the perfect pizza crust to add your sauce and favorite toppings!


  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 13 oz water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Combine the flour, salt, and yeast into a large bowl and whisk or stir until thoroughly combined. Add water into the mixture with your hands until no dry flour remains on the bottom of the bowl.
  • On a heavily floured surface, knead the dough for about 10 minutes, pulling the dough away from you and folding it back over itself until it becomes smooth. Form the dough into a ball and place in a bowl coated with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel and refrigerate, allowing the dough to rise overnight. If you are using the dough that night you can let it rise at room temperature for about an hour and the dough will roughly double in size.
  • Once the dough has risen, turn out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into four even dough balls. Allow these to rise for an additional 1-2 hours if you plan on making pizza right away. Otherwise, place in ziplock bags to freeze for your next pizza night.
