  • 1 Packet Active Dry Yeast

  • 2 Teaspoons Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 6 Cups Bread/Artisan Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt


  • Pour warm water and sugar into mixing bowl, sprinkle yeast on top of water. Don’t stir, just let it sit on top for approximately 10- 12 minutes. You will start to see it foam on top.
  • Add the olive oil, salt and 2 cups of flour, mix together using a dough hook or by hand.
  • Continue to add the flour 1 cup at a time (leave approximately  ½ cup to the side).

  • Empty dough onto a floured surface and knead approximately 15 times and form into a ball.
  • Place the dough into a greased bowl (using non-stick spray, or few drops of oil).
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put a warm kitchen towel on top.
  • Let it rise for approximately 1 hour, uncover punch down few times and recover for another hour.
  • The dough is now ready, cut in half and stretch to desired thickness
  • Make sure to use non-stick spray on the pan you intend to use
  • Dress pizza up using desired sauce and toppings (We used an Alfredo Sauce) mushrooms, spinach and red bell peppers.
