Perfect Pizza Crust

Servings 2


  • 2 cups Silvana’s Kitchen Multi-Purpose Flour plus more for dusting
  • One ¼-ounce/7.5-gram package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for brushing


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add the egg whites, olive oil and ¾ cup water. Using a wooden spoon, beat until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  2. Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces; place each on a lightly floured, 12-inch-long piece of parchment paper. Lightly flour the top and, using your fingertips or a rolling pin, press the dough out to make a round about ¼ inch thick. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  3. Position a rack in the bottom of the oven with a baking stone on the rack and preheat to 450°F. Working with one piece of dough at a time, slide the dough with parchment paper onto the preheated baking stone and bake until puffy and crisp on the bottom, about 8 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining dough.
