Simple Pizza Recipe

This is a very fast and easy pizza recipe, I’ve done several times. It’ll take longer to go to the restaurant, and these pizzas taste just as good or better, plus it’s a lot of fun to make. Works really well in the Kitchenaid mixer with dough hook attachment. The recipe will make two sheet pans and a pie pan, enough to feed 5 – 7 people.



  •  6 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1 ounce active dry yeast
  •  4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  •  2 teaspoon salt
  •  2 tablespoon white sugar
  •  2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)




Combine flour, salt, sugar, yeast, oil and warm water in large mixer bowl, attach hook and let mix on low until dough ball forms.

Flour work surface and flatten out dough with rolling pin. Dough is enough for two large sheet pans and a round pie pan.

Lightly coat pans with flour and spread out dough. Trim away dough hanging over rim of pan.

Top first with tomato sauce followed by shredded cheese or pesto and then cheese. Then add more toppings like mushrooms, leaf spinach and whatever you have in the fridge.

Bake at 375 degrees C (190 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and dough is light brown. Depending on oven size you might want to start baking first pan while getting second pan ready and so on.
