  • Pizza Pan, Stand Mixer


  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 envelope rapid rise yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cups warm water (120-130 degrees)
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1-2 cups pizza sauce
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 15 pepperoni


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and prepare a pizza pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt. Whisk until fully combined.
  •  Measure and test the temperature of your water. When the temperature is correct, add it to the dry ingredients along with the oil. Mix for one minute or until fully incorporated. 
  • Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. If it is too sticky to handle, add flour 1 Tablespoon at a time until you can handle it. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 4 minutes.
  • Let the dough rise for 10 minutes.
  • Spread the dough evenly to fill greased pizza pan or baking sheet.
  • Top with sauce, cheese and desired toppings.
  • Bake on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the crust starts to brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.


  1. Do not add too much flour to this. Only add enough so you can handle it. 
  2. Be sure to spread the crust completely to the edge of the 12inch baking pan. 
  3. If you are using a pizza stone, you do not need to grease the bottom.
