Ingredients
  • 2.5 cups flour + more for working the dough
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 cup warm water + more as needed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil + more to oil pizza pans
  • garlic powder, dried herbs, Parmesan cheese or other add-ins optional
Instructions
  1. If baking immediately, preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar (and any dry add-ins, if desired) in a medium sized bowl.

  3. Measure warm water in a liquid measuring cup and add olive oil. Stir.

  4. Dump water and oil into dry ingredients and stir to combine. If mixture is too dry, add more water one tablespoon at a time until dough forms a shaggy ball with no dry spots.

  5. Set dough aside and oil two pizza pans well.

  6. Use the (floured) heels of your hands to push the dough ball down into a cylinder.  Then use fingers to gently spread dough over pan to edges.* Sprinkle with more flour anytime your fingers meet a sticky section.

  7. Sprinkle dough with a bit of flour so it isn't sticky. Divide dough in half. Place a ball of dough in the centre of each pizza pan.

  8. Cover with sauce and your favourite toppings and bake in preheated oven. Mine took 11 minutes, but ovens vary.

  9. Enjoy! :)

Recipe Notes
* This gets easier with practice.  The dough will get springy if you work it too much.  After mixing my dough I prep my toppings, then spread the dough in the pan.  While I finish prepping my toppings I let it rest in the pan for a few minutes, and then come back to it.  It has usually shrunk slightly so I gently press it back to the rim of the pan before adding toppings.
