  • Oven
  • stand mixer
  • pizza pan


  • 1 cup warm water 110 degrees F.
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast 1 packet
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Garlic Salt


  • Place warm water, yeast and sugar into bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attachment attached. Mix gently then let sit until doubled in size, about 5 minutes. With mixer on low, add flour, olive oil, salt and garlic salt. Scrape sides of bowl and let mixer knead dough for 5 minutes. Dough should have the sides of the bowl cleaned. Add sprinkles of flour or water if needed to get the bowl cleaned while kneading. After 5 minutes of kneading, remove dough from mixing bowl with floured hands (put a small amount of flour in your hands and rub together), and transfer to a floured countertop. Fold dough over itself a couple times then form into a round ball.
  • From here, you can use the dough to make pizza and calzones. When ready, place dough onto a pizza pan, pressing to a 12 inch round, or larger for a more thin crust. Spoon pizza sauce of your choice over dough leaving a 1 inch border around edges. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and toppings of your choice. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. for 15 minutes, until crust is cooked through. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
