Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 15-20 minutes

Yield: up to four 12" pizzas


1 tablespoon (12g) granulated sugar

1 tablespoon (9g) active dry yeast or instant yeast, or 1 packet active dry yeast

1 tablespoon (18g) salt

2 cups (454g) water, lukewarm

2 tablespoons (25g) olive oil, optional

5-1/2 to 6 cups (660g to 720g) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour or 5-1/2 to 6 cups (682g to 744g) King Arthur Pizza Flour Blend, enough to make a soft, smooth dough

2 tablespoons (12g) King Arthur Pizza Dough Flavor seasoning, optional


Dissolve the sugar, yeast, and salt in the lukewarm water.

Add the flour starting with 5 1/2 cups (660g) flour and adding more as necessary to make a soft, smooth dough.

Knead the dough (with your hands, a mixer, or your bread machine set on the dough cycle) until it's smooth and elastic, about 7 to 10 minutes.

Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or other container, cover it, and let it rise for 1 to 2 hours, whatever fits your schedule.

Gently deflate the dough, and divide it into four pieces, for medium-crust pizza; or three pieces, for thicker crusts. Use a rolling pin to roll each piece, on a lightly greased surface, into a circle to fit a 12" pizza pan. Let the dough rest several times to relax it and make it more cooperative.

Place the rounds on pizza pans or on baking sheets

Preheat your oven to 450°F. While it's heating, get out your toppings, which you've prepared ahead.

Spread pizza or spaghetti sauce lightly over the surface, and add your favorite toppings. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese.

Bake the pizzas for 15 to 20 minutes, until they're golden brown, the toppings are hot and bubbly, and the cheese is melted. Remove the pizzas from the oven.

Immediately transfer pizzas to a cooling rack, so their bottoms don't get soggy. After about 10 minutes (to allow the toppings to set), slice and serve!
