This recipe is easier than it may look, I added lots of pictures to show different steps of the process. So you can see how mine comes out all the way!

You will notice our adult pizza is much browner than the kids pizza, we like it like that. So I would only cook for 15 minutes. We cooked our adult pizza for 20 minutes, kids pizza for 15 in a 475 preheated oven.

  • 1Put yeast, sugar salt in a bowl with warm water stir well and let sit for 3 minutes.
  • 2Add oil (2TBSP), stir well.
  • 3Add flour stir until clumpy dough.
  • 4The dough will not be a ball it will be loose clumps of floury dough.
  • 5Turn the dough out to a flat surface and knead for around 6-8 minutes, dough will feel tough and be a little difficult.
