Homemade Sausage Mushroom Pizza

Homemade pizza with a lovely pizza dough adapted from Bobby Flay.


Dough for two pizzas:

Toppings for one pizza:


  1. Combine the bread flour, sugar, yeast and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a dough hook and combine. While the mixer is running, add the water and 2 tablespoons of the oil and beat until the dough forms into a ball. If the dough seems very sticky, add a tablespoon or two more flour. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead into a ball on a lightly floured surface.
  2. Place the dough into a large greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rest in a warm spot until doubled in size, about an hour. Return the dough to a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Cover each piece of dough and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Place pizza stone in oven and preheat to 450 degrees. Take one piece of the dough and pat into a 14-inch crust on a sheet of parchment, using flour if needed. Top with sliced tomatoes, sausage, mushrooms and cheese. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, dried oregano and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. With a pizza peel, slide pizza and parchment onto the pizza stone. Alternatively, you can use a pizza pan, but I like the crispier crust that forms when the pizza sits right on the stone.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned. Remove using pizza peel to a cooling rack.
