jay's signature pizza crust


  • Servings: 1
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees f/45 degrees c)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour


    Preparation Time: 30 mins Cook Time: 20 mins Ready Time: 1 hr 50 mins

  • in a large bowl, dissolve the yeast and brown sugar in the water, and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • stir the salt and oil into the yeast solution. mix in 2 1/2 cups of the flour.
  • turn dough out a clean, well floured surface, and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky. place the dough into a well oiled bowl, and cover with a cloth. let the dough rise until double; this should take about 1 hour. punch down the dough, and form a tight ball. allow the dough to relax for a minute before rolling out. use for your favorite pizza recipe.
  • preheat oven to 425 degrees f (220 degrees c). if you are baking the dough on a pizza stone, you may place your toppings on the dough, and bake immediately. if you are baking your pizza in a pan, lightly oil the pan, and let the dough rise for 15 or 20 minutes before topping and baking it.
  • bake pizza in preheated oven, until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
