My favorite easy Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe


One of my families favorite traditions is Friday Night Pizza and Family Movie Night.  I try to make our own pizza most nights.  This change has been SO good!  It saves us a lot of money and tastes SO much better.

I wanted to share with you my favorite pizza crust recipe (because I have just about tried then ALL!!).  I hope your family will love it as much as mine does.

Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe

2 ¼ tsp yeast

1 cup warm water (baby bath temp)

2 TBSP olive oil

1 tsp salt

2 ¼  cups flour

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In mixer lightly mix water and yeast together.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.

Add the oil, salt, sugar and flour to the yeast mixture.  Mix well.  You may need a little less or little more flour.  You want the dough to bounce back if you poke it.  I also usually keep the dough slightly sticky.

Put dough into greased bowl and cover with a dishcloth.  Let rise for 30-60 minutes until doubled.  I will usually put it next to the flour or in the sun to speed up the rising process.

Place dough on lightly floured surface.  Roll out into a pizza shape.  (If you don’t have a pizza pan, just use a cookie sheet.  It works great!)  Place on greased pan.  Poke all over with a fork.  Cover with your favorite toppings.


Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.


Do you have a family pizza and movie night????
