Pizza Dough

Well Dough is the most important and basic element of making a good pizza. The taste of pizza depends on the freshness of dough, so I usually make fresh dough and it takes less than an hour to make it. Today, I will be telling you the recipe of thin crust pizza dough.


  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 tbspn sugar
  • 2 tbspns dry yeast
  • 1 cup of warm water


– Mix yeast and sugar in warm water and keep aside for 5 minutes until the yeast is fermented.

– Now add flour and mix well.

-Knead knead and knead. Add extra flour if needed. When smooth, put it in a large deep bowl with a lid and keep it covered for 2 – 4 hours at a warm place. When it is doubled in size, pinch and use. 


-After 30 minutes you will notice that its volume has been doubled. Now knead it once more to remove the extra air inside.

-Divide your dough into two, each will make a 12” pizza.

-Place one part of dough on a pizza pan and use your fingers to make a fine pizza crust.

-Glaze your crust with olive oil before putting any topping.


Your crust is ready to be baked. Be creative in preparing your toppings!


-Add flour while kneading if you feel that dough is sticking to our hands.

-Knead well.
