Homemade Pizza Crust

This recipe actually delivers a serviceable homemade yeast crust.  I did it in a baking pan and the bottom was a little soft.  I would recommend a wire pizza screen.  The original recipe source also noted that a pizza stone works well.  I would add  that I have had so little success with homemade crust, this recipe is cribbed exactly from the original source.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions:

  1. Stir water, sugar and yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil and the salt.
  2. Stir in the flour until well blended.
  3. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.Pat dough into pan or on to a pizza stone using fingers dipped in olive oil. If desired sprinkle basil, thyme or other seasonings on crust.
  4. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a preheated 425 degree oven.
