  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour unbleached
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp active dry yeast
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • 7 oz warm water 110F
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • semolina or all-purpose flour for dusting


  • Add the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt to a medium mixing bowl. Add the water and oil and, using a wooden spoon, stir to combine. Continue to stir until a dough forms. Turn the dough onto a floured work surface and knead for 3 minutes, dusting with more flour as needed, until the dough is tacky but doesn’t stick to the work surface.
  • Lightly grease a large mixing bowl and place the dough inside. Cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap and place in a warm area for 2 hours to proof and rise.
  • Use in your favorite pizza recipe.
