Ingredients

  • 1/2  cup  lukewarm water
  • 1/2  teaspoon  active dry yeast
  • 1/2  teaspoon  honey
  • 1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 475° F.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the water, yeast, and honey. Let that sit for 10 minutes.
  • Add the flour and salt into the yeast mixture and stir to combine. Start with a spoon and move to your hands once the dough starts to form. You may need to add more water if the dough is too dry, or more flour if the dough is too sticky. Stick to a teaspoon at a time, as needed.
  • Lay out a piece of parchment, add a light layer of flour, and top with the dough. Knead the dough a few times with your hands. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Roll or stretch the dough out as thin as possible, but make sure it is at least 10 inches wide.
  • Transfer the parchment and the stretched dough onto a pizza stone or other pizza baking pan.
  • Bake dough for 5 minutes and then remove from oven.
  • Add your toppings and bake for 10-15 minutes, but keep an eye on it since baking times can differ.
  • It will be done when the crust is crispy and cheese is golden.
  • Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing.

Notes

*for a crispier crust, preheat the pizza stone
