  • 3 ½ cups pizza/bread flour or all-purpose flour/plain flour
  • 1 ⅓ cups luke warm water
  • 4 teaspoon white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil


  • If you use active dry yeast just like me, you need to dissolve it in water so it blooms (or rises).
  • To warm water add sugar and active dry yeast. Mix to combine.
  • Let yeast rest until it is bloomed (or risen) nicely.
    Note: do not use old/expired yeast. If yeast does not bloom, discard and make a fresh batch.
  • Into food processor add flour and salt.
  • Pulse it few seconds to combine.
  • Pour olive oil in slow streams waiting for flour to mix in oil.
  • With motor on low, pour risen yeast slowly in 10 seconds allowing flour to mix in the liquid.
  • Let processor run on low motor for 30 seconds. Hold on to food processor as it runs and kneads the dough. It will shake.
  • Take the dough out. Shape it into ball.
    Tip: if dough it too wet add one or two tablespoon flour, if flour is too dry sprinkle some warm water. Knead dough in food processor until pizza dough reaches right consistency.
  • Grease a large bowl with olive oil.
  • Place pizza dough in, turn it over to coat in olive oil all sides.
  • Cover with cling film, place bowl in warm place for 1-2 hours.
  • Once dough raises double the size, lightly knead it, divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll into balls. Shape pizza by stretching and pulling method. Use it to make your favorite pizza recipe.



  1. Use fresh active dry yeast. Old stock of yeast will not make dough rise.
  2. If yeast does not rise (bloom) do not use it. Discard and make another fresh batch.
  3. Use warm water. Hot water will kill the yeast, room temperature or cold water will not activate yeast.
  4. Use white flour. Pizza flour or bread flour gives pizza nice chewy, crispy texture. You can use all-purpose flour too.
I made two 10 inch pizzas from the dough.
