My Little Pizza Boy
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Italian
  • 1 envelope dry active yeast
  • 1½ cups warm water (105-110 degrees F)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus more for coating bowl and sheet pans
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
  • Your favorite toppings
  1. Add yeast, water, and honey into the workbowl of a stand mixer. Let stand until foamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add oil, salt, and 2 cups of the flour and mix to combine. Add remaining flour, one cup at a time, until fully incorporated and a shaggy dough forms.
  3. Remove dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 8-10 minutes. Place dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and set into the fridge for about 24 hours.
  4. Prepare two sheet pans with olive oil.
  5. Remove dough from fridge, punch down and divide in half. Stretch one half of the dough onto each of the prepared sheet pans taking care not to tear it. Cover with a dishtowel, set in a warm place, and allow to rise for 30-45 minutes.
  6. Top with your favorite toppings, taking care not to overload the dough. A light coating of sauce, a sprinkle of cheese, and a couple of other toppings are all you need for a great pizza!!
  7. Enjoy!
