Perfect Pizza Dough

It really is the perfect pizza dough. I have given this recipe to many ladies that enjoy a fun dinner, and the raves come back as some of the best pizza dough ever!



  • 1 package or 2 1/4 tsp. Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil -no other oil will do
  • 1 Tbsp. honey, not sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cool or tepid (lukewarm) water


Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water and set aside to proof for about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine honey, olive oil, salt and cool water in a small bowl or measuring cup. Take flour and put on a work surface and make a hole or well in the center and pour honey/water mixture in the center of the flour well. Drag some of the flour over the wet mixture, then add the yeast and slowly mix all ingredients. Then knead until a satiny dough is achieved.

Or: Put all ingredients, except for the salt, in a strong mixer, making sure the flour is on top of wet honey/water mixture. Then put the yeast mixture on top of the flour and turn on your mixer, and let it do the work for you. Let it knead the dough for about 15 minutes on the slowest speed.


This dough makes a really nice small loaf of Pizza Dough Bread and Bread Sticks, too.

Note: remember to never put the salt next to the yeast, as salt kills yeast. lol

Servings: 6
Time:20 -30 Minutes Preparation Time

For Pizzas, 35 minutes; Loaf of Bread: 30 - 35 minutes; Bread Sticks 15 - 20 minutes Minutes Cooking Time

Sounds very good - I'm wondering if this can be done with the bread machine.

Does this dough rise at all, or you just roll it out when the dough is ready?

What temp do you cook it at?

This is an interesting recipe but the yeast probably isn't doing much since you don't feed it with sugar. The honey, which you add later, isn't a sugar that efficiently feeds yeast.
