Recipe: Classic Pizza

Ingredients: For the pizza dough:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the tomato sauce:

  • 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the toppings:

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, etc.)


  1. Prepare the pizza dough: In a small bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until a soft dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours until it doubles in size.
  5. Prepare the tomato sauce: In a saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for a minute until fragrant.
  6. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Simmer the sauce for about 15-20 minutes until it thickens.
  7. Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven while preheating.
  8. Punch down the risen dough and divide it into two equal portions. Roll each portion into a 12-inch round pizza crust.
  9. Transfer the pizza crusts onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or a pizza peel if using a pizza stone.
  10. Spread the tomato sauce evenly over each pizza crust, leaving a small border around the edges.
  11. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese generously over the sauce, and then add your favorite toppings.
  12. Carefully slide the pizzas onto the preheated pizza stone in the oven, or bake them directly on the baking sheet.
  13. Bake the pizzas for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
  14. Remove the pizzas from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Preparation time: Approximately 2 hours (including dough rising time) Baking time: 12-15 minutes Servings: 2 medium-sized pizzas
