Step by step how to make the original Sicilian dough pizza recipe for commercial pizza oven:

  • Combine 1/2 flour, and water in a bowl and mix.
  • Adding yeast and sugar mixture after about 5 minutes, continue mixing
  • Add 1/2 of remaining flour with salt, 1 glass of cool tap water, and olive oil. Blend thoroughly with a wooden spoon.  (or dough mixer machine)
  • Combine the remaining flour, knead 10 minutes on a floured surface (5 minutes in a dough mixer machine) until smooth.
  • Place dough in bowl dusted with flour and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size (1 to 2 hours).
  • Punch dough down and put in closable bag in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 200° C.
  • Remove dough from refrigerator (about 2 hours before using) when ready to shape into crust.
  • Punch down dough and roll out on a lightly floured surface.
  • Let rest for 10−15 minutes.
  • Spread sauce over crust and top and place desired toppings.
  • Bake in a 330 degree oven for 25 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Sicilian pizza dough has its toppings baked directly into the crust. An authentic Sicilian pizza dough recipe uses neither cheese nor anchovies and is baked on a pizza stone not a pizza pan.
