Simple Italian Herb Pizza Dough

Who doesn’t love a good homemade pizza? As they say, it’s all in the Homemade pizza with Italian herb crustcrust. A crust will either make or break a pizza and with so many ways to make an okay one, here is a super simple recipe for an Italian herb pizza dough that will have everyone gathered at your house for pizza night! The dough doesn’t have to rise so it is perfect for those weeknight meals and the crust comes out soft and chewy. It only takes 15 minutes to make this dough and only another 20 to have a hot pizza out of the oven. Not too bad for a 35 minute pizza!

You will need:

1 package (.25 ounces) of active dry yeast

1 teaspoon granulated white sugar

1 cup of warm water

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon dry Italian herb seasoning

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour


In a large bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and water and let it sit for 10 minutes. It will be foamy or creamy on top which lets you know the yeast is working.

First step to pizza crust

Foamy yeast

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix in the bowl until a dough forms. Let it rest for 5 minutes.

Turn your dough out onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes or until the dough comes together to create a smooth, elastic ball. Roll or pat into a large rectangle or circle, depending upon your pizza pan.
