My husband is the pizza master. He’s ridiculously handy in the kitchen no matter what he attempts, but his pizza crust dough is perfection!

Highly recommended serving suggestion: Krab pizza, with alfredo sauce, tomatoes, cream cheese, and fake krab meat!! SO GOOD.

The perfect pizza crust dough

Temp: 375*

Prep time: 20-30 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 c warm water

3/4 TBS yeast

3/4 TBS sugar or honey

1 + 1/3 TBS olive oil

2 1/2+ cups white flour (enough to make the dough come together)

1/2 tsp salt

To prepare:

Preheat the oven to 375*.

Pour the water into a large bowl, and sprinkle the yeast on top. Add the sugar or honey, and let stand for 5(ish) minutes until the yeast starts to froth.

Add in the oil, flour, and salt, and mix to combine.

In the bowl or on the counter, knead the dough, adding a little flour at a time until it isn’t doesn’t stick anymore.

Let rise until doubled in size {we usually try to let it rest for 20-30 minutes, but sometimes we just can’t wait that long!}.

Spread the dough onto a pan in a pizza shape. We use a pizza stone–can’t sing it’s praises enough! At this point, you can do one of two things:

1) Put the dough in the oven for 10 minutes, poking it with a fork for aeration. Then, pull it out, add sauce and toppings, and return to the oven for another 10 minutes (or until golden brown on the edges and bottom). We do it this way!

OR!

2) Add sauce and toppings right on top of the raw dough, and bake the whole pizza together for about 20 minutes. We haven’t done it this way in a long time, so I can’t speak very accurately to the baking time.

Then, enjoy! 🙂
