Pizza Crust

This basic pizza crust recipe can be used for regular and thin crust, or for calzones. You can add herbs to the dough if you like.


  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1 t. salt


  1. Dissolve one packet of yeast in 1 1/2 c. warm water.
  2. Stir together 1 1/2 cups of flour and a teaspoon of salt, then stir into the yeast/water mix until smooth. Let the resulting batter sit covered for 30 minutes.
  3. Stir in 2 1/2 more cups of flour and turn out onto a floured cutting board. Knead additional flour into the dough until it’s not sticky any more.
  4. Shape and bake as recipe instructs


For a thin and crispy crust, roll the dough out as thin as you can, and bake on a pizza stone. For calzones, roll into two ten-inch circles.
