Pizza Extravaganza!

My former roommate, Adair, and I made homemade pizza last night! Adair and I have been friends since we were little, and she is one of my favorite people on earth. We also lived together for 4 years in college, talk about a lasting friendship! I wanted to make sure I posted pictures of our endeavor, so I hope you appreciate our cooking expertise :)

Making the dough from scratch:

It was nice having a stand-alone mixer to mix the dough

Then we rolled the dough into a ball (it was extremely sticky)

We then stretched it out and added toppings (BBQ sauce, fresh mozzarella, onions, BBQ chicken)

Sooo good

The chefs!

Bon apetit!

Prep Time: 5 Minutes     Cook Time: 15 minutes    Difficulty: Easy    Servings: 12
  • 1 teaspoon Instant Or Active Dry Yeast
  • 1-½ cup Warm Water
  • 4 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ⅓ cups Olive Oil
Preparation Instructions
Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water.
In a mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed (with paddle attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour. Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.
Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you need it.
***It’s best to make the dough at least 24 hours in advance, and 3 or 4 days is even better.
***Makes 2 crusts.


  1. I will be adding this to the list! That pizza looks amazing and I am sure my husband will love it. (Loving that red Kitchenaid!)

  2. Yay pizza! Anna, I love your blog. It's so homey and crafty! Also, you are one of MY favorite people on earth.
