  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour


  • Begin by proofing the yeast. Add yeast, brown sugar, and water to a medium size mixing bowl or stand mixer.Allow to stand 10 minutes or until yeast is producing small bubbles in the water.
  • Add salt, olive oil, and flour. Knead by hand, or use a dough hook attachment on medium-low speed, until dough is slightly elastic and no longer sticky.
  • Rub a medium bowl with a drizzle of olive oil to coat. Place pizza dough in the bowl, cover, and allow to rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  • Place pizza stone in oven and preheat to 425°.
  • Remove cover and punch down dough. Form dough into a tight ball and allow it to rest 5 minutes.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into desired shape.
  • Place on preheated pizza stone. Add your toppings and bake 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
