You won't be disappointed with the results! -Josh Rink, Taste of Home Food Stylist

3 1/2 to 4 cups bread flour, plus more for rolling
1 teaspoon sugar
1 envelope instant dry yeast
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 cups water, 110 degrees F

Domino's Pizza Dough Recipe image

Domino's pizza was a strangely traditionalist chain for a long time. They sold only one kind of crust, called the regular pizza, and only in two sizes. The pizza dough was shaped by tossing and pulling, and they offered no side orders. The chain has diversified a lot since then, with pan pizzas and other types being added. However, original Domino's pizza crust is still the same. This Domino's pizza dough recipe aims to capture that unique chewiness that we all recognize and love. Use an electric mixer to speed things up, or just combine by hand for a good workout. Like many other pizza doughs, this one can be refrigerated and frozen for later use. Try it and experience the great taste of Domino's pizza dough in your kitchen.

The Real Chicago Deep Dish Pizza Dough image

I have it on good authority that this is the real deep dish pizza dough that's used in Chicago. The real thing is nothing like bread, or even pizza, dough. It is a buttery, flaky crust that is achieved by: 1) using corn oil (not butter) and 2) minimal mixing and kneading times. The pizza itself is built with cheese, toppings, and sauce, in that order. I suggest you use 6-in-1® tomatoes which are far superior to other brands. Classico® ground tomatoes are very similar. Contrary to popular opinion, cornmeal is not used in the dough by Chicago pizzerias.

Categories     Bake     Dinner     Lunch     Pizza

Yield 3 Pizza

Number Of Ingredients 4

500 g Molino Caputo Tipo 00 flour
280 g water (cool not cold)
2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp instant yeast (aka Bread machine yeast)


  • This recipe is by weight. For those who do not have a scale, sorry, I just can't get consistent results with measuring cups. Put Flour followed by salt and yeast in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Stir the ingredients to distribute yeast and salt in the flour. Add the Water. Mix on low for 12 minutes with a dough hook. If the dough does not come together completely in 2 minutes add more water a teaspoon at a time. Once mixed it will get a smooth texture but the dough will be too stressed to use the "window method" to check that the gluten has bonded. Once mixed let rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours. this not only lets the yeast develop it also allows the dough to develop some of it's flavor. At least an hour before you want to bake the pizzas the dough needs to be portioned, and shaped into balls or disks. Also this is a good time to turn your oven onto full blast. The gluten in this flour too strong stretch into a pizza after shaping and it needs to rest for at least an hour before shaping. Dividing the dough in half will give 2 12-13 inch pizzas. Dividing it into 3 will give 3 8-9 inch pizzas. Add your favorite ingredients and bake on a pizza screen or on a pizza stone as hot as your oven will go. Watch closely as they bake quick 5-8 min. Quick tip: If you are baking on a pizza stone shape your pizza on parchment paper and transfer directly onto the stone.

Yield 8 slices, 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar
4 cups all-purpose flour or 4 cups bread machine flour
1 tablespoon of your favorite pizza seasoning (mine is Wildly Delicious Italian)
4 teaspoons fast rise yeast
2 tablespoons cornmeal


  • MEASURE all ingredients except cornmeal into bread pan in order listed; Select dough setting.
  • REMOVE dough to lightly floured surface and cover with plastic wrap; Let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • SPRINKLE cornmeal on large 16 inch pizza pan or on a pizza stone and press dough into pizza shape; Cover with a towel and let rise for another 30 minutes.
  • SPREAD with desired sauce, seasonings and toppings.
  • BAKE at 425F for 20-30 minutes; I like to partially bake the pizza on a pan for about 8 minutes and then transfer it to a hot pizza stone sprinkled with the cornmeal for the remainder of the cooking time.
  • I find by baking it initially on the pan it is easier to transfer to a pizza stone thus maintaining its large size.


Pizza Dough image

Provided by Tyler Florence

Yield 3 pizza crusts

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Extra-virgin olive oil
3 cups 00 flour, plus more for dusting


  • In the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the yeast, sugar, and warm water; stir gently to dissolve. Let the mixture stand until the yeast comes alive and starts to foam, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Turn the mixer on low and add the salt and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the flour, a little at a time, mixing at the lowest speed until all the flour has been incorporated. When the dough starts to come together, increase the speed to medium; stop the machine periodically to scrape the dough off the hook. Get a feel for the dough by squeezing a small amount together: if it's crumbly, add more water; if it's sticky, add more flour - 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix until the dough gathers into a ball, this should take about 5 minutes.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and fold it over itself a few times; kneading until it's smooth and elastic. Form the dough into a round and place in a lightly oiled bowl, turn it over to coat. Cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel and let it rise in a warm spot (i.e. over a gas pilot light) until doubled in size, about 1 hour. This is a good time to stick a pizza stone in the oven and preheat them to 500 degrees F.
  • Once the dough is domed and spongy, turn it out onto a lightly floured counter. Roll and stretch the dough into a cylinder and divide into 3 equal pieces. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes so it will be easier to roll out.
  • Roll or pat out a piece of dough into a 12 inch circle, about 1/8-inch thick. Dust a pizza paddle with flour and slide it under the pizza dough. Brush the crust with a thin layer of olive oil, and top with your favorite flavors. Slide the pizza onto the hot stone in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the crust is golden and crisp. Repeat with the remaining dough.


Pizza Dough image

This pizza dough is very easy to put together, and it's enough for four 10-inch-diameter pizzas. It is best if prepared in advance and refrigerated overnight. Refrigerated dough will keep several days. It may also be successfully frozen and thawed. Keeping preweighed individual frozen dough balls on hand makes it easy to have pizza whenever you like. (Thaw dough overnight in the refrigerator or leave at room temperature for several hours.)

Categories     easy, pizza and calzones, main course

Time 20m

Yield 4 dough balls (8 ounces/225 grams each)

Number Of Ingredients 4

2 teaspoons/5 grams dry active yeast
4 1/2 cups/625 grams all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
2 teaspoons/5 grams kosher salt
2 tablespoons/30 milliliters olive oil


  • Put 1 3/4 cups/420 milliliters lukewarm water in a mixing bowl (use a stand mixer or food processor if you prefer). Sprinkle yeast over water and let dissolve, about 2 minutes.
  • Add flour, salt and olive oil and mix well until flour is incorporated and dough forms, about 5 minutes. It may look a little rough or pockmarked.
  • Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Turn dough out onto surface and knead lightly until it looks smooth, 3 to 4 minutes. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces, about 8 ounces/225 grams each.
  • Wrap dough pieces individually in resealable zipper bags and refrigerate for several hours or, for best results, overnight; you can also freeze it for future use. (You can skip this rise in the refrigerator and use the dough right away, but this cool, slow rise makes it easier to stretch and gives the pizza a crisper texture and more nuanced flavor.)
  • To use dough, form each piece into a smooth, firm ball, and place on a flour-dusted or parchment-lined baking sheet. (If you froze the dough, leave it at room temperature for several hours first, or defrost overnight in the refrigerator.) Flour lightly, cover loosely with plastic wrap and top with a kitchen towel. Leave to rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Each dough ball with make a 10-inch diameter pizza.
