  • 3 cups flour (may need a bit more)
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • ¾ cup warm water (about 100 degrees F)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon olive oil (will need more)


  • In your gallon sized baggie, mix the flour, salt and sugar.
  • Add in the yeast and mix again.
  • Add the water and olive oil to the bag and close the top. Mix well again.
  • Knead the closed bag for a few minutes (about 5) until it's well mixed and looks like it's not super sticky.
  • Let the bag rest for 10-20 minutes, or up to 1 hour.
  • Coat your cast iron griddle or skillet with olive oil, and coat your hands as well. This helps to keep the dough from sticking to you.
  • Take the dough from the bag and press it down into the bottom of the pan.
  • If cooking in an oven, preheat the oven to 500 degrees, assemble the pizza and bake 10-12 minutes.
  • If cooking over a campfire, cook the crust until firm. Top with sauce and toppings and then loosely cover the top with aluminum foil. Cook about 5 minutes or so until the cheese has melted and toppings are warmed.
  • Slice and serve.
