Pizza Dough

This is Robbie’s pizza dough recipe.  It makes enough dough for 2 ~14″ pizzas.

Ingredients:
1 ¾ cups water
¼ cup honey
½ tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
2 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
4-5 cups flour

In the bowl of an electric mixer add the water and honey.  Mix with the dough hook attachment for 2-3 minutes to dissolve honey.  Mix in salt, yeast and olive oil.  Add flour one cup at a time.  Let the mixer knead the dough for a minute or so in between flour doses.  Mix until the dough forms a ball that is just barely sticky.

Turn the dough out onto a floured counter.  Knead for 2 minutes, then split into two even balls.

Let the dough rise until doubled in size.

To bake:  Preheat oven to as hot as it will go, about 500°F.  Prepare a pizza pan by spraying with non-stick spray and sprinkling with corn meal.  A preheated pizza stone may be used in place of a pizza pan.  Form dough into a circle and top with desired toppings.  We normally put the cheese on last to hold on the other toppings.  Bake until browned and bubbly, about 8 minutes.

  1. I made Robbie’s Pizza Dough tonight with the “official” recipe. I used warm water, added sugar to the honey to equal 1/4 cup (I ran out of honey), and used half whole wheat flour. It was seriously one of the best pizzas I have done in a while!

    1. I’m glad you guys liked it. We used to do half whole wheat flour since it’s healthier, but we like the texture of the crust better with the all purpose flour better. Both are yummy though!
