  • 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 package Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast 2 1/4 teaspoons
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup very warm water 120° to 130°F
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1/2 to 1 cup pizza sauce
  • Other toppings as desired
  • 1 to 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Combine 1 cup flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  • Place water in a measuring cup or bowl that is microwave safe. Heat until it reaches 120-130°F (it’s easiest to test this with an instant read thermometer). Add the oil to the water mixture.
  • Add water mixture to flour and mix until well blended, about 1 minute. Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.
  • Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Press your pizza dough into the prepared pan.
  • Spread with pizza sauce. Top with desired toppings and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake on lowest oven rack for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
