As a lover of all pizza, it is hard to choose just one type to deem my favorite; but New York-style pizza does stand a little bit above all others. It is the best kind of greasy goodness that makes pizza the wonderful food that it is. What makes New York-style pizza special is that the dough is thin and crisp giving it the ability to literally fold in half without losing sauce or toppings. This particular recipe is one of the best that I’ve found. It’s adapted from Feeling Foodish, with a few modifications.

The beauty of this crust is that it doesn’t require a pizza stone. This crust turns out airy, chewy, and crisp on a perforated or solid baking sheet making it the perfect texture for those foldable New York-style slices.

How to make and bake pizza dough

First, proof the yeast by mixing the water, sugar, and yeast in a bowl. Next, pour in the olive oil, flour, and salt. Use a dough hook attachment on medium speed for about 6-7 minutes.

Pour the dough onto a floured surface and knead the dough for another 2-3 minutes, stretching and shaping the dough into a ball. Place it back into the bowl and cover for 20-30 minutes. Using the instant yeast will allow it to rise in about 30 minutes or less. Once it’s doubled in size, use the dough as desired.

Uses for pizza dough
