New York Style Pizza Dough (Cold Rise)


  • 4 Cups of Bread Flour
  • 1 and 1/2 Cups of Warm Water
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Instant Dry Yeast
  • 2 Teaspoons of Salt
  • 4 Teaspoons of Olive Oil


  1. Add water, flour, yeast, and salt together in a large bowl. Don't add the oil yet. You want the flour to hydrate first before adding oil.

  2. Mix the dough until most of the flour is incorporated.

  3. Add the oil and knead dough for 10 minutes.

  4. Cover dough and let it rise for 45 minutes to an hour.

  5. Divide the dough into 3 pieces and round into balls. Wipe the dough balls with oil or cooking spray.

  6. Place the dough balls in airtight containers and place in fridge for 12-24 hours (up to 4 or 5 days).

  7. Remove from fridge and let come to room temperature before using (about an hour or two).
