The Perfect Pizza Crust

Not to be dramatic, but this is perfect pizza crust.

Pizza is a staple in my home, no joke. I make pizza for dinner at least once a week. Twice this week since I made Thai Chicken Pizza yesterday for dinner then loved it so much I made it again tonight.

When you're eating pizza this often, insanely delicious crust is a must.

So I searched and tested and cried and searched and ate and gained 5 pounds and then I found it.

The perfect pizza crust. Its yummy and easy. Minimal rising.


The Perfect Pizza Crust
  • 1 3/4-2 cups bread flour (bread flour is a MUST!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dry active yeast
  1.  In a small bowl combine the warm water, yeast, honey, and olive oil. Let yeast proof for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, and oregano. Add the yeast mixture once it has proofed. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic. 
  3. Let rise for 10 minutes over the warm over (as it preheats). Roll out in a circle and place on a cornmeal sprinkled pan.
  4. Cover with toppings and bake at 475 for 15 minutes.


  1. what makes it perfect? The fluffiness? Minimal rising? What characteristics do you seek?

    1. I would have to say I rank it in terms of 1:the flavor, 2: the fluffiness of the crust yet crispiness of the bottom, and 3. easiness.

      In that order.

  2. I wanna know what you topped it with to make the Thai pizza? That looks/sounds amazing!

    1. I got the recipe from here: and made it exactly as the recipe calls. I wouldn't change a thing, it was so good.

  3. Mmm this looks perfect Jocelyn! I crave pizza all the time, but we usually go out for it. I should totally make it more often.
