Pizza Dough for 8

15 MIN
2 H
8 small, 4 medium or 2 large pizzas



  1. In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, or in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add the water and mix just until the dough starts to form a ball. Knead the dough with your hands for 5 minutes on a lightly floured work surface, or with the dough hook, just until smooth.
  2. Form the dough into a ball and place in a clean, lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat with the oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rest in a warm, humid spot for 2 hours or until doubled in volume.

  1. Can this dough be frozen? If yes when is the best time to freeze before or after it has risen?

  2. Wonderfully light and fluffy. Goes a long way!!! I had extra dough so I fried it and made doughnuts and rolled them in cinnamon sugar!!!! wow I love this recipe!❤️

  3. Love this! When is the best time to freeze extra dough? After it has doubled in size or before?

  4. Perfect!!! Great sweet flavour, chewy dough, good thickness and rises so beautifully. I let it rise for a full two hours and it was worth the wait.

  5. Dough rises to perfect and is so light and crisp when rolled out thin.

  6. why does my dough not double??

  7. Thank you Riccardo for this amazing recipe. I made two pizza's last night for my family and they said it was the best pizza they ever had. They loved the crust so much.

  8. Easy, common sense instructions and ingredients that led to a great family night! The crust was fantastic!!! Thank you!
