 Make your own pizza dough for homemade pizza. homemade pizza recipe

We love to make homemade pizza. I got this pizza dough recipe from my mom years ago. I taught my husband how to make it when we were first married. I really should teach him more recipes. :)  Because when it is time to make pizza he is willing to make the pizza dough. He does a great job and it is nice to have his help in the kitchen.

You don’t need fancy ingredients to make a fabulous homemade pizza!

I like to mix my pizza dough in my Bosch mixer or a Kitchen Aid.
You can certainly mix it by hand, but it is MUCH easier in a mixer.

    Does this recipe make just 1 crust? What size? It looks so yummy. I am totally going to try it!

    • It is good for one crust. I bake it on a 15 inch pan, but you could certainly roll it out to fit a 16 inch if needed.

  2. I take it its 1 1/4 CUPS water? :)

    Do you not need to let the dough rise? You don’t mention letting the dough rise from the yeast.
