Italian Feather Bread Pizza Dough

This recipe came from my nonna who immigrated from Italy at 40 and members of my family have been making it for years. It is the best! I hope you enjoy it. My fiance said I should sell it! Lol!

Original recipe makes 6 servings


1 3/4 cups hot water
3 tablespoons olive oil, or more to taste
2 tablespoons quick-rise yeast
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed

  1. Beat water, olive oil, yeast, sugar, and salt together with an electric mixer until evenly combined, about 2 minutes. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon after each addition, until dough almost comes away from the sides of the bowl.
  2. Knead the dough with your hands until soft and smooth. Lightly oil a bowl and place dough in the bowl, flipping to coat all of the dough. Let dough rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
