Ingredients Used to Make this Homemade Pizza Dough

This recipe is one of my favorites as it is easy, quick, and fun to make. All it requires are four ingredients, plus toppings!

Tip: Mix the active dry yeast in warm water (110°F-115°F) and allow the mixture to sit for ten minutes. This will allow the yeast to dissolve properly.

Next, allow the crust to rise for 15-30 minutes for the tastiest, fluffiest crust! It should double in size by the time it’s ready to be rolled out.

Topping Ideas

Be creative with your toppings! Some of my go-to toppings include the following combinations:

Add other spices, herbs or seasonings you enjoy for increased flavor. There is a topping combination to enjoy for everyone!

How to Store the Homemade Pizza Dough

If making the pizza dough beforehand, store it in an airtight container that’s oiled with avocado oil, this will prevent the dough from drying out. Then place the pizza dough in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.

If you need to freeze the dough, you may store it for up to three months in an airtight container.
