Martha Stewart’s Quick Basic Dough Recipe is by far the most user-friendly dough recipe I’ve come across. I’ve modified the recipe slightly at the kneading stage. My dough is typically pretty sticky after the first proof, so it’s helpful to add an additional 1 cup to 2 cups of flour!

Basic Pizza Dough

Ingredients

  • 2 envelopes (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast (not rapid-rise)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for bowl and brushing
  • 4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus an additional 1-2 cups for kneading
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt

 

Directions

  1. Pour 1 1/2 cups warm water into a large bowl. Sprinkle with yeast and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk sugar, oil, and salt into yeast mixture. Add flour and stir until a sticky dough forms.
  3. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl and brush top with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap (we prefer to cover with our reusable silicone lid that automatically forms an airtight seal on any bowl) and set aside in a warm, draft-free place until dough has doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead 1 to 2  cups of flour into the dough.
  5. Dough can be stored in an oiled bowl covered with plastic in refrigerator up to 2 hours.
  6. Turn out dough on a floured surface and roll dough.

About me

Hi, my name is Tyler Moore. My wife and I live with our three young daughters in a 700- square-foot apartment in New York City. I began my tidying journey when an early-30’s crisis invited me to reflect upon, challenge, and change my patterns of daily living. I quit my job as a school administrator, returned to teaching, and started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.
