Our foolproof dough delivers the most amazing pizza crust you'll ever taste. The long rising time results in a lovely texture and extra-rich flavour. It's so easy to make and can be stretched into either a regular or thin-crust pizza. You'll never want to order in again!

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 24 hours & 15 minutes



In large bowl, whisk together 2 1/2 cups of the flour, yeast and salt. Using wooden spoon, stir in warm water and olive oil until ragged dough forms.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; kneading, adding as much of the remaining flour as needed to prevent dough from sticking, until smooth and elastic (dough will be slightly tacky to the touch but won't stick to hands), about 8 minutes.

Divide dough in half. Transfer to 2 greased bowls, turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for 24 hours. (Or let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.) Remove dough from refrigerator; bring to room temperature before rolling.

Makes two 12-inch regular pizza crusts or two 14-inch thin pizza crusts, each about 8 slices.
