Ingredients

  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ¾ cup room-temperature water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, oregano, and basil. Mix well.
  2. Add the water and olive oil and mix with a spoon until the dough comes together. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic.
  3. Cover the dough with a damp towel and let it rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes, or until it has doubled in size.
  4. Once the dough has risen, knead it for about 2 minutes. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
  5. Roll out each portion of dough into a round shape. Place the dough on a greased pizza pan and top with your favorite toppings. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Interesting Facts

  • The dough for Neapolitan-style pizza is made with caputo flour, a high-gluten Italian flour.
  • The pizza is traditionally cooked in a wood-fired oven at high temperatures.
  • It is usually served uncut, so that the toppings remain on the pizza.
