How to Cook Classic Pizza Dough

  1. Pour the warm water into a bowl and add the dry yeast. Wait for 10 minutes until the yeast starts to bubble.
  2. Add the sugar, salt, and olive oil. Use a fork and mix.
  3. Add the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the middle of it.
  4. Pour around 1/3 of the wet mixture in the well and slowly stir with a spatula in order to absorb the flour.
  5. Pour the remaining mixture and mix until it has fully absorbed the flour.
  6. Grease a large bowl with olive oil. Add the dough and cover the bowl with plastic foil.
  7. Let it rise for the next 60 minutes.
  8. Next, grab some dough in your hands and lay it on your working surface (flour-dusted).
  9. Knead the dough until smooth and level it with a rolling pin.
  10. Give it a round shape, approximately 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter.
