  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Instant Yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Lukewarm Water


  • In a mixing bowl add the flour salt and yeast. Mix the dry ingredients well. Then make a well into the center and add olive oil and water.
  • With your clean hands, mix the content and slowly shape it into a dough. Continue to form for a few more minutes so that it turns into a smooth dough.
  • Sprinkle some flour over the dough and place a cloth over it. Let it rest for minimum 30 minutes or more near a warm place. The longer you can leave it to rest, the better. The dough needs to rise, the yeast in the dough eats the sugars and that creates the airiness in your dough.
  • Sprinkle some flour over your working area and work out your dough again for a little while.
  • Roll out the dough into a round or square shape (depends on your baking pan size) and top with your favorite pizza topping. Bake at 430° Fahrenheit/ 220° Celsius for about 13 minutes.
