Homemade Pizza Dough

A fluffy, chewy, flavorful pizza dough

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 1 1/3 Cups Warm Water
  • 2 tsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Yeast
  • 3 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the water, sugar and yeast. Let it sit for about 10 minutes until frothy.

  2. Add the flour, cornmeal, salt, garlic powder and onion powder, and olive oil. With the dough hook attachment mix the dough until fully combined. Mix or “knead” for another 10 minutes until soft and elastic and forms into a ball.

  3. Brush with olive oil and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm part of your kitchen and let it rise for an hour and it doubles in size.

  4. Punch it down and turn over onto a floured work surface. Divide in half for 2 pizzas or into smaller portions for 4 individual pizzas.

  5. Roll out into thin circles, about a 1/4 inch thick and top with your favorite toppings.

  6. Bake at 400°F until melty and the crust is golden on a baking sheet or use a pizza stone if you have one available.

  7. Immediately enjoy!
