  • Stand mixer


  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar
  • ¾ cup warm water


  • Measure the water in a measuring cup then add the yeast and honey. Let is activate for 5 minutes.
  • While the yeast is activating measure out the flour and salt add it to a stand mixer bowl. You can use a regular bowl and a wooden spoon if you don't have a stand mixer. After the 5 minutes are up, add in the yeast water mixture and knead the dough for 5 minutes. The dough will be soft and a little sticky.
  • Transfer the pizza dough to a well oiled bowl, making sure to rub the top of the pizza dough with some oil as well to keep it from forming a crust. Cover the pizza dough with a heavy towel, set it in a warm place and let it rest for 1 hour.
  • Press the dough down, shape it into a ball again. Cover with heavy towels and let it rise again in a warm place for another 2 hours.
  • When the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 450F. Sprinkle some semolina on your baking sheet and spread the pizza dough onto the baking sheet using floured hands. Add your toppings and bake for 15 minutes making sure to rotate the pizza halfway through to ensure even baking. Enjoy!
