Enjoy the freshness of a homemade pizza crust and enjoy the delicious aromas that fill your kitchen as it bakes!


  • 1 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 cup bread flour (approximately)


  1. Mix yeast, water, salt, and oil. Add about 1 cup flour to make a stiff dough. The amount of flour may vary slightly.
  2. Knead the dough until it is very elastic (will stretch and not make a hole).
  3. Form your dough into a thin or thick crust as desired. Lay it on a greased baking sheet to rise while you prepare toppings for pizza.
  4. Bake at 400degF with desired toppings until crust is browned and top is bubbly.


Pizza can be topped with sauce, mozzarella cheese, vegetables, and cooked meats.
