Homemade Pizza Dough

This easy-to-make Homemade Pizza Dough yields a crispy and chewy crust that’s perfect for your favorite toppings. With just a few simple ingredients and a stand mixer, you’ll have delicious pizza in no time.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. In Ventray Stand Mixer, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast.
  2. Gradually add the warm water and olive oil to the flour mixture, and mix on low speed until the dough comes together.
  3. Increase the speed to medium and knead the dough for 5-7 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Remove the dough from the mixer and form it into a ball.
  5. Place the dough ball into a greased bowl and cover it with a damp towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it has doubled in size.
  6. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and knead it for a few minutes to remove any air bubbles.
  7. Divide the dough into 2-3 equal portions and roll each portion out into a round shape.
  8. Place the pizza dough onto a greased baking sheet or pizza stone and add your desired toppings.
  9. Bake the pizza in a preheated oven at 400°F for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Enjoy!
