Calories: 115Calories


  • 4 cup flour (480g)
  • ½ teaspoon yeast
  • 1 & ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 & ½ cup lukewarm water
  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil to coat the bowl


  • Add the flour, yeast, and salt to a large bowl. Add in the lukewarm water and stir using a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms.
  • This dough will make one large pizza or two medium ones, so depending on what you want to make, either divide the dough between two oiled bowls to make 2 pizzas or keep it in one oiled bowl to make a large pizza.
  • Brush 1 or 2 bowls with olive oil and place you dough back in there. Move the dough ball around gently to coat the top and bottom with the oil then wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for about 8 hours. If you don't have 8 hours, let the dough rise until it doubles.
  • When the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 450F. Sprinkle some semolina on your baking sheet and set aside. On a well floured surface, spread the pizza dough with floured hands. Transfer to the baking sheet or pizza stone, add your toppings and bake for 15 minutes making sure to rotate the pizza halfway through to ensure even baking. Enjoy!


Make sure to flour your work surface before spreading the pizza dough with well floured hands so this wet dough doesn't stick everywhere. The wetness of the dough is what will make it extra chewy and delicious too! 
This pizza dough can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
