How To Make Italian Pizza Dough
Enjoy soft Italian pizza dough made with 5 simple ingredients. Yeast, all-purpose flour, and olive oil are combined for a tasty crust with a nice rise.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast, sugar, salt, water, olive oil, and 5 cups of flour.
Knead on low until dough starts to come together. Continue kneading until the dough forms a nice, soft dough ball and the sides of the bowl are clean, adding more flour as necessary to achieve this texture.
Divide the dough into 4 to 6 equal pieces. Dust with remaining flour and place on a baking sheet or large tray. Cover and let rest 4 to 5 hours.
When ready to bake, roll dough into large circles. Place crust on a pizza pan or cornmeal dusted pizza peel. Top with desired toppings.
Bake pizza in a 550 degrees F oven on the pizza pan, or transfer the pizza from the pizza peel to a pizza stone. Bake until toppings are warm, bubbly, and browning.
Serve and enjoy.
