On our trip to NYC for Memorial Day, we took a Pizza Tour. We went to four different pizza places. One in Little Italy and then got on a school bus to Staten Island for the other three places. You can read all about it here – https://www.plainchicken.com/2015/06/scotts-pizza-tour-new-york-city.html It was SO much fun! We learned so much about pizza. We also got a great recipe for pizza dough. The recipe came from the owner of the pizza tour. He swore by it. I couldn’t wait to get home and try it!
We have made this recipe every week since we’ve been home, and it is seriously the best pizza dough recipe. It is super easy to make. It is also so easy to roll out. Some pizza dough is so difficult to roll into a circle. You can stretch it and it pulls back. SO frustrating! I promise you won’t have any problems with this dough. I just pressed it out into a circle, no need for a rolling pin. 
I make the dough several days in advance and let it hang out in the fridge. The dough needs to be refrigerated at least 24 hours before using. It will keep in the fridge 3 or 4 days. The recipe makes three 10-12″ pizzas. 
We bake our pizza on a pizza stone and a pizza steel. Put the stone/pizza steel in the oven and preheat it to 550 degrees. Let the stone/pizza steel sit in the oven for at least 40 minutes before baking the pizza. Roll out the dough on a piece of parchment paper, add toppings and transfer the assembled pizza on the parchment on to the stone (I use a cookie sheet to do this). I baked the pizza for 8-10 minutes (8 on the pizza steel and 10 on the stone). It turns out amazing! Better than any pizza place in town! If you plan on making a lot of pizza at home, I highly suggest buying a pizza steel. The crust gets a really good color on it and tastes amazing. The pizza stone does a good job, but the pizza steel takes it to a whole new level.

One note about this recipe. The measurements are in grams. It is always best to bake using grams, so that the measurements are correct. You can get a kitchen scale for under $15 on amazon. We use ours all the time. It is a great investment.

  1. I made this dough on Saturday and we had it for dinner on Tuesday and it was amazing! I haven't unpacked my stone yet so I just cooked it at 475 for 12 minutes on a sprayed pizza pan with holes in the bottom. I also just split the dough in 1/2 for two large pizzas. It worked out BEAUTIFULLY! We'd been religiously using the Weeknight pizza dough recipe but THIS is our favorite by FAR now! Thank you!

    1. I'd love for you to make the pizza dough, it is the best recipe. However, it works best in the measurements listed above. I won't be converting it. Sorry!

    1. I used unbleached all-purpose flour (King Arthur) and regular tap water. It doesn't have to be hot water if you let it proof in the fridge a couple of days.

  2. hello 🙂 I do not have a scale, and honestly i don't have enough room in my little kitchen for one (I literally have my kitchenaid mixer in my hallway closet, lol) do/can you convert this into cups/tbsp/tsp?

    1. If you want to freeze it, put it in ziplock bags and then in freezer instead of the fridge. When you are ready to use it, put in the the fridge to thaw and rise.

  3. I totally agree about having a kitchen scale. Now I want the pizza steel. I will have to try this crust for the family. My 8 yo has been complaining that we haven't made pizza for a while.

  4. This looks really good and I am anxious to try it but can you tell me why the recipe is listed in grams instead of cups and ounces? The conversions are not exact and I am worried it isn't going to come out right because I don't have gram measuring tools. Has anyone else made this using Cups and ounces?

    1. Baking in grams is much more accurate. This dough is foolproof if you make it using the more accurate measurements in grams. You can get a kitchen scale for under $15. I linked to one on Amazon at the end of the post.

  5. Homemade pizza dough is SOOOO much better than the store-bought stuff! And I love how simple and no-fuss this dough is!

  6. Oh my gosh! This looks like a pizza from a restaurant. Love that the dough is easy to roll out. I have no patience for pizza dough that keeps wanting to pull back. 🙂

  7. Do you leave the parchment under the pizza to bake it or slide it from the parchment onto the steel? Thanks.

    1. I finally got around to making this dough and it was amazing! The dough didn't shrink back after rolling and no rolling pin was required just like you said! It is my new favorite dough recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I'm ordering the Pizza Steel and the scale!! I can't wait to try this. Can you tell us what sauce you used? I believe I read your Pizza Tour blog and thought you said they only use tomato sauce?? No spices? Thanks for all your recipes.
