How to Make Homemade Pizza Dough


  1. In small bowl or cup mix warm water and yeast and let it activate around 5 minutes.
  2. Mix flour and salt and blend in a mixer or mix by hand. pour the melted butter in to the yeast mixture (butter cannot be boiling hot, but just warmed).
  3. While the mixer is on start adding the the liquid to the flour mixture and just let it mix on low until a dough begins to form. Make sure all ingredients are incorporated as much as possible before kneading.
  4. Pour dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 minutes or so. My dough was kinda tough and thick.
  5. Use butter spray (non stick) and spray a bowl then place your smooth dough in to the bowl, give a quick spray on the dough and cover. Let it set for 2 hours to rise and double in size.
  6. Once its has risen then you simply punch it down cut it into either 2 or 3 even sized pieces. This recipe makes 2 or 3 pizza's, depending on the thickness you prefer. we made 2, a round and a square.
  7. After you have fit your dough in to your pan poke it all over with a fork, then top with your choice of toppings.

    We had a Cheese pizza and a pizza with onion, black olives, mushrooms, turkey pepperoni and cheese. After baking I rubbed the stick of butter on the crust, then sprinkled garlic powder and seasoning salt.
