Home-Made Pizza Crust Step By Step

After The Pizza Dough Rises

When you are ready, pull the dough out of the fridge and let it rest on the counter for a few minutes. This will allow it to warm up and be easier to roll out. You can form a circle or rectangle, depending on the size and shape of your your pizza stone.

If you don’t have a pizza stone, like me, you can roll it out and place it on a baking sheet. add your toppings and bake! it’s that simple!
