Basic Pizza Dough


This post may contain affiliate links.

Today, I have another pizza dough recipe for you.  I have a good collection of doughs for pizza, but I wanted try this one because it looked so good.  The ingredients to this basic pizza dough are similar to a dough recipe I have shared before, but the process with this one is different.  I mean, most doughs include these ingredients.

The trick to this recipe is kneading it in your kitchen aid (or other mixer with a dough hook) for 6 minutes. Then giving it an hour or two to rest.  It was delish. The only complaint from my fam was they wanted the crust to be thicker.  My family likes thick crust.  I on the other hand like all kinds – pan, regular, thin, Chicago deep dish etc. I rarely meet a pizza crust that I do not like.

Now, I would say the thickness level with this crust was in between Papa Murphy’s regular and thin crust. It has a nice chewiness to the dough. Next time I make this, to please the fam, I’ll just make a smaller pizza.  I topped my portion with my pizza sauce and some delicious diced Columbus salami and mushrooms.

Basic Pizza Dough


Units Scale


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add yeast, honey, and warm water. Give it a stir and let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until bubbly and mixture foamy.
  2. Then add in the salt, oil and 1 1/2 cups flour. Mix using dough hook.
  3. Once well combined, add additional flour 1/2 cup at a time until slightly tacky, but doesn’t stick to your hands.
  4. Turn on medium to knead for 6 minutes. Then side of the bowl should be clean and the dough should be smooth.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl. Spray the bowl with non-stick spray. Add the dough back to the bowl and turn once to get both sides coated with the non-stick spray.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours.
  7. The dough is ready to use. Divide dough in half. Roll each half out into a 12 inch circle on a piece of parchment paper. Top as desired.
  8. Transfer the dough and parchment to a baking sheet or pizza stone.
  9. Bake at 500 for 9-10 minutes.

Boyfriend declared he will never buy the pre-made dough from the store again and will just have me make it! The solid 6 minutes of kneading made a big difference, thank you for the tip! And if you knead by hand like I do, a good workout too!

Hi! I haven’t ever made pizza dough before, but I just got a Kitchen Aid mixer and would love to try your recipe 🙂 Just a couple questions..do you bake the dough twice (before and after adding the toppings)? Or do you put the toppings on before you bake at 500 for 9-10 minutes. And have you ever tried freezing your pizzas?

I was craving a good homemade pizza just a few days ago. I will have to give this dough a try!
