Ultimate Pizza Dough

Soft and fluffy fool proof pizza dough. This is my go-to vegan pizza dough recipe featuring garlic and herbs for a restaurant style twist!

Before You Begin


  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 2 1/2 tsp Yeast (or one packet)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Parsley Flakes
  • 1/2 tbsp Oregano


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine warm water, yeast, oil, and sugar. Let sit for 15 minutes while the yeast activates.
  • Pour in flour, salt, garlic powder, parsley flakes, and oregano. Give a light mix.
  • I make my dough in a stand mixer using the dough hook attachment on speed 3. Let mix (or knead by hand) for 10 minutes until the dough has formed into a smooth ball. 
  • Remove the dough from hook, lightly oil the bowl, and place the dough back in, coating it evenly in the oil.
  • I preheat my oven on low, turn it off, and let some heat escape to create a warm place for the dough to rise. Make sure the oven isn't too hot for your bowl!
  • Cover the dough, place in the oven to rise for 40 minutes to 1 hour. 
  • Punch the dough down, form into a ball again. Use the full batch to make 2 large pizzas, or cut it in half and save some for later by refrigerating in an airtight container overnight.


  • I make my pizza dough in a Cuisinart stand mixer because I find it so easy and hands-free. You can just as easily make this without a mixer, just knead the dough by hand! 
  • Garlic, parsley, and oregano are my favorite pizza spices. Feel free to tweak this to your liking. I've also added 2 tbsp of nooch and had good results! 
  • If you're saving some of your dough for the next day, make sure you seal it in an airtight container as the dough continues to expand when refrigerated. 
  • If you're saving leftover dough for more than one day, store in the freezer.
