Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Proofing 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 2 14" Pizza Crusts


  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour plus more for rolling
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 envelope dry yeast
  • 2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water 110° F
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil plus 2 tsp. for greasing the bowl
  • pizza toppings of your choice (sauce, cheese, etc.)


  • For those without a stand mixer, combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add in a little bit of water and oil at a time, mixing with a wooden spoon until the dough is soft and pliable, forming a ball. With a stand mixer, combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in the bowl. While the mixer is running, add the water and oil and beat until a ball of dough forms.If your dough is too wet, add a little flour and if your dough is too dry, add a little water!
  • Whether you use a stand mixer or not, empty your dough onto a floured surface and knead into a smooth, firm ball.
  • Using 2 tablespoons of olive oil, grease a large bowl and place your dough inside. Plug in your Raisenne and place the bowl on top. Let it double in size, about 30-40 minutes. If you don’t have a Raisenne Dough Riser, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm area for about 1 hour.
  • Take your risen dough out of the bowl and place it on a floured surface. Cut it into 2 equal-sized pieces for 2 pizzas. Let them rest for 10 minutes before rolling into roughly 14” pizza crusts.
  • Top with your favorite sauce, cheese, and toppings! Bake at 475° F for roughly 10-15 minutes until cheese is golden and crust is browned.
  • Let the pizza cool for about 3-5 minutes. Slice and serve!
