Herbed Pizza Dough

Herbed Pizza Dough - the only #recipe I will use!

I felt the need to repost this recipe with my added touch to it and as a separate post with actual instructions on how to use it as pizza dough. It is my favorite pizza dough recipe and I use it so much, I have it memorized. I love the seasoning in the crust - which you can change up to fit whatever type of toppings you place on top.

What you need:
  • 1/2 cup warm water (about 110*)
  • 1 envelope instant yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups water, room temp
  • 2 tbsp. EVOO
  • 4 cups bread flour, plus some
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Italian seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Cornmeal
  1. Mix together warm water and yeast; let stand for 5 minutes or until frothy.
  2. Add room temperature water and EVOO to yeast.
  3. Place flour, salt, Italian seasoning, and garlic into a stand mixer; mix slightly.
  4. Mix in yeast mixture; switch to dough hook once dough comes together.
  5. Knead for 5 to 8 minutes. Cover and let rise for 1 1/2 hours or until doubled.
  6. After risen, separate into 2 equal pieces. At this point, you can freeze them - wrap them in saran wrap and then place in a ziploc bag. Defrost in refrigerator overnight.
  7. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface.
  8. Place a little cornmeal on your pizza pan.
  9. Transfer your dough onto the pizza pan and prick with a fork.
  10. Bake between 400* to 450* for 8 to 10 minutes.
  11. Then top with desired toppings and bake 10 to 12 more minutes.
  12. You can skip prebaking and bake the dough with the toppings on it already.
