The Very Best Pizza Dough Recipe Ever

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hi there,

How are you doing today?

This week I want to share with you the very best pizza dough recipe ever that we make at least once a week in our home. I learned this recipe from my mother’s in-house assistant back when I was 12 years old. I have made this pizza dough recipe many times and each time I make it, I get many compliments about how tastes, and fresh and soft the pizza is.

To reach out the perfect dough I had to do some adjustments as this recipe was created in Brazil with local ingredients.  (Recipe Below)


42 g active dry yeast (2 packages)

3 Tbsp. Sugar

1 Cup warm water (warm, not super-hot or you will kill the yeast)

6 Tbsp. Olive oil

3 Tsps. Salt

2 ½ – 3 Cups All-purpose flour



In a large bowl mix the yeast, sugar, and warm water. Mix it with a spoon, then cover with a clean cloth and let it rest for 3 mins.

Add the olive oil and salt. Mix it up. Then add the flour, a cup at a time until the dough is not sticky. Then cover it and let rest in a bowl for 30 mins and that’s it. The dough is ready.

Split the dough in half and roll each ball until very thin and place it in a greased pan.

Now would be a good time to preheat oven to 375⁰ Fahrenheit

Now comes my favorite part, top your pizza dough however you would like.

Bake at 375⁰ F for 15-20 mins you might want to check it after 12 mins just to see how close it is to finishing.  Depending on how thick/thin the dough was rolled it may finish quicker or take the full time.

My family loves this recipe. We like doing some brazilian style toppings like Ham, Corn (HAHA), boiled eggs and some veggies.  In my husband’s words, this pizza dough is one of the reasons he married me 😛  What is your favorite pizza topping? I would love to know!
