Pizza Dough Recipe


Makes 2 large pizzas
⅓ cup warm water, about 110°
1 envelope instant yeast
1 ¼ cup water, at room temperature
2 Tbsp Pastene Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for the bowl
4 cups bread flour, plus more for kneading
1 ½ tsp salt


Prep time: 2 hours 15 minutes 

  • Place the warm water in a bowl that holds at least 2 cups. Add the yeast and let sit for about 5 minutes until it dissolves and becomes active. Add the room temperature water and oil and stir to combine.
  • Place the flour and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Continue pulsing as the liquid ingredients are poured in. Hold back about ⅛ -¼ cup of the liquid. If the dough doesn’t immediately form into a ball, add the remaining liquid and pulse until a ball forms.
  • Process for about 30 seconds more to form a smooth and elastic dough. The dough should feel a bit tacky.
  • Lightly flour your work surface and use a rubber spatula to turn the dough out onto the flour. Knead by hand for 4-5 turns.
  • Add additional oil to  coat a large bowl, place dough in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for 1 ½ – 2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size. 
  • Deflate the dough, separate, and form into your pie. To keep the dough from ballooning during baking, prick the dough thoroughly before it goes in the oven.
