A great way to start saving money is to make your own pizza at home rather than spend hard earned dollars at a delivery or take out place. Pizza dough is way too easy and cheap to pass up.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: 1 14" pizza


  • 2.5 - 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 envelope rapid rise yeast
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup hot water, 130-140 degrees
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  1. Mix 2 cups of flour, yeast, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil to the 1 cup of hot water then pour the mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until a soft dough forms. Sprinkle in another 1/2 cup of flour then move the dough to a floured surface.
  3. Knead the dough for 4-6 minutes, adding flour when the dough feels sticky. When it becomes soft and elastic, allow it to rest on the floured surface under a towel for 10 minutes.
  4. Rub your pizza pan with olive oil and sprinkle with cornmeal. Stretch the dough to fit your pan.
