I’ve had a request for the pizza dough recipe I use for making the Sloppy Joe Calzones we enjoy.  So here it is!  I actually throw all the ingredients into my bread maker and set it to the “dough” feature, but I’ve written out the instructions to show you how to make it by hand.

Easy Pizza Dough

Easy Pizza Dough
  • 1 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.
  2. Dump the dough onto a floured surface and knead into a smooth dough. (about 5 minutes or so)
  3. Roll out the dough and press down onto a greased pizza pan. Add your pizza toppings of choice.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until crispy and lightly browned.

**For the Calzones, I simply rip small pieces of the dough and shape them fairly thin by hand.
