Fail-proof Pizza Dough Recipe

How do you like your pizza? Thin crust, hand-tossed and airy, deep dish, rustic and unusually shaped? No matter your pizza preference, this recipe is the only one you'll ever need! It creates a literally fail-proof pizza dough suitable for any toppings you could throw at it. This recipe uses strong flour or bread flour, flour that you can use for making pasta, so it's a bit more robust and definitely easy to work with.

It's versatile enough to be rolled thinly or you can pile up a deep dish like I've done for a Chicago style pizza pie. Keep the ingredients simple and make a classic margherita or get creative like +Kirsten Madaus and her amazing pizza concoctions. Next time it's pizza night, give the takeaways a miss and whip up your own restaurant-style pizza! Trust me guys, you can't mess up this easy recipe!
