Recipe from Cat and Matt

YIELD 3x 10-12’’ pizzas or 4x personal sized pizzas


  • 1 package (2 ¼ tsp) active yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 3 ½ cups Ground Up Pizza Dough Flour
  • Ground Up Organic Cornmeal, for baking pizzas


Making the Dough

  1. Mix 3 cups flour and the salt in a bowl, use the bowl of your stand mixer if using one.
  2. Proof yeast in warm water with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Let stand for 5 minutes or so, until frothy. 
  3. Mix water/oil/yeast into flour and salt. You’ll smell the malt when mixing, reminiscent of brewing beer.
  4. Mix for 2-3 minutes until dough comes together and all of the ingredients are well incorporated. If the dough is too wet, add more flour a little at a time. It may be a fairly soft dough but this is ok, form it into a ball as best you can. 
  5. Drizzle 1 Tbsp. olive oil into bowl. Roll dough around to coat dough with oil. 
  6. Cover bowl and let dough rise until doubled, at least an hour, and we’ve gone longer without any problems. 

Making the Pizza 

  1. About half an hour before you’re going to bake you pizza, pre-heat oven to 500⁰ F. If you have a pizza stone, put it in to allow it to heat up too. You can also prep any topping during this time.
  2. On a floured counter top, divide and shape dough into 3 pieces for 10-12” pizzas or 4 pieces for personal size pizzas. If using a pizza peel, flour it well and toss some cornmeal on it to prevent the dough from sticking. If you don’t have a peel, you can use an inverted baking sheet, parchment paper, get creative. Put dough on peel and top your pizzas with your favorites. 
  3. Put pizza in oven, directly on the stone if using, or you can put the baking sheet right in the oven. Bake for 9-11 minutes, you may need to spin 180⁰ halfway through. Let your preferences be your guide for how long you let it bake. 
  4. When your pizza’s done, remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack for a couple of minutes to let it set up before cutting. Enjoy.
