  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, instant yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix them together well.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the warm water and olive oil.
  • Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until the dough starts to come together.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour as you knead.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and place it back into the mixing bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
  • After the dough has risen, punch it down gently to release any air bubbles. You can now divide the dough into smaller portions if desired.
  • Preheat your oven to the highest temperature possible (usually around 475°F or 245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven while it preheats.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into your desired pizza shape and thickness. Transfer it to a pizza peel or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Add your favorite pizza toppings, such as tomato sauce, cheese, vegetables, and meats.
  • If using a pizza stone, carefully slide the pizza onto the preheated stone in the oven. If using a baking sheet, simply place it in the oven.
  • Bake the pizza for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
