  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric (optional)

Method

Pizza dough instructions

1.) loosely combine water, sugar, and yeast in small measuring cup; set aside for 5 minutes until yeast begins to foam at the top.

**if yeast does not foam after 5 minutes, your water may be too hot/cold, or your yeast might be expired.**

2.) combine flour, salt, olive oil, and yeast mixture together. Whisk until dough begins to form; combine rest of ingredients by hand.

3.) knead dough ball for 10 minutes or until dough is smooth and springs back after being touched. Do not overwork your dough!

4.) lightly coat dough ball with olive oil, place back in bowl, cover with towel/plastic wrap; let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

5.) dough should be doubled in size. Press/punch down the middle to release any air; lightly flour work surface and dough and flatten until it's 1/2 inch thick before adding your sauce or toppings.

6.) cook in oven at 500 degrees fahrenheit for around 5-10 minutes.

pizza sauce instructions

1.) empty tomato sauce into bowl.

2.) stir in onion powder, garlic powder, oregano (and turmeric).

3.) store leftover sauce in jar with lid for later use.
