  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tablespoon Honey or Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tablespoon Vegetable Oil you can use Olive Oil too
  • 1 tablespoon Instant Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 cup Maida or Refined Flour


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water, honey and yeast. Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes until frothy. Add in the vegetable oil.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour and the salt. Add the flour to the yeast mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well between additions.
  • Continue adding the flour until the dough can be pulled away from the sides of the bowl with a spatula, but the dough will still be quite sticky.
  • You may need to add in a little bit more or less flour, but the key is to remember that the dough will still be sticky and will stick to your fingers when you try to pull it apart.
  • Grease a large bowl, then scrape the dough into the bowl.
  • Turn the dough to coat it in oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel and a let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface.
  • Pull the dough around to the bottom, stretching it to create a smooth ball. Cut the dough into 3 equal portions.
  • Roll out the dough to use in your favorite pizza recipe, or refrigerate until needed.
  • To bake, preheat a pizza stone in the oven as hot as you can go for at least 30 minutes. (I usually go between 475ºF and 500ºF.)
  • Prepare your pizza with your desired toppings and bake until the crust is golden, 8-10 minutes.
