Brooklyn Style Pizza Dough


This recipe is my number one Brooklyn Style Pizza Dough. One of my favorite things to do when I visit New York City is to cross the Brooklyn Bridge and spend a day wandering around the borough of Brooklyn. When I am there I always treat myself to a slice (or two!) of Brooklyn style pizza which is very thin and crispy compared to other pizza dough. It has taken me some time, but I think I have perfected the dough recipe to make at home. This recipe requires flour, water, yeast and salt to make the dough. I use my electric mixer with the dough hook attachment, but you could make and knead it by hand too.

This recipe makes enough for 2 thin 12-inch pizzas. I make this dough once a week for our traditional “Pizza Friday” family dinner. Once the dough is rolled out, I let the kids go crazy and add their favorite toppings.

To make the Brooklyn Style Pizza Dough, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how to make Brooklyn Style Pizza Dough?

Steps to make Brooklyn Style Pizza Dough


Combine the ingredients


Combine 2 cups bread flour, water, yeast, and salt in the electric mixer bowl.


Mix. Leave the dough to rise.


Mix on lowest speed for about 2 minutes using the dough hook attachment. The ingredients should be blended together but still moist. Cover the bowl with a towel and allow the dough to double in volume. This should take around 20 minutes.


Mix and add remaining flour


Return the bowl to the electric mixer and mix on low speed for about 5 minutes, until dough has come together. Add in the remaining flour slowly until a soft, sticky dough forms.


Leave the dough to rest


Again, cover the bowl with the towel and allow the dough to rest for another 20 minutes.


Oil a container and prepare a work surface


Lightly coat a container with olive oil and lightly dust a work surface with flour.


Knead the pizza dough. Refrigerate.


Transfer the dough to the floured work surface. Knead the dough until it is soft on the outside, but still moist inside. Shape the pizza dough into a ball and place in the container.
Leave the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 day. It will keep in the fridge for up to 7 days.


Making the pizza


When you wish to make your Brooklyn style pizza, simply remove the dough from the refrigerator and all to warm up for 5-10 minutes. Divide the dough into two balls. Roll them out and place them in a pizza pan.


Add toppings and bake


Add your favorite pizza toppings. Bake the pizza in preheated oven (500°F) for 10-15 minutes until the dough is brown around the edges and charred on the bottom.




Allow to cool slightly before slicing and eating the pizza.
