Detroit-Style Pizza Dough

Yield:  1 Each


Main Ingredients

10.5 oz.

Bread Flour

1 tsp.

Instant Yeast

1 Tbsp

Kosher Salt

7.75 oz.

Water, lukewarm

2 Tbsp.

Olive Oil



Step 1:  In a stand mixer, combine flour, yeast and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment.

Step 2:  Stir to combine, then add water.

Step 3:  Mix on low speed until dough comes together into a rough ball, then shut off mixer and let rest for 10 minutes.

Step 4:  Continue mixing at medium-low speed until dough forms a smooth, silky ball, about 10 minutes longer.

Step 5:  Remove dough hook, form dough into a tight ball, then set it in the bottom of the mixer bowl.

Step 6:  Cover tightly with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place until dough has roughly doubled in volume, about 2 hours.

Step 7:  Pour olive oil in the bottom of a Detroit-style anodized aluminum pan.

Step 8:  Transfer dough to pan and turn to coat in oil. 

Step 9:  Press down on dough and spread it toward the edges as much as you can without tearing.

Step 10: Cover tightly in plastic and set aside for 30 minutes to allow dough to rest.

Step 11:  Return to dough and stretch it out again to the edges of the pan.

Cover prepared dough and use as needed.
