Let’s Get Started


This is the foundation for any pizza. At Frank’s we make our own pizza dough because we want your pizza to have that special taste. While we don’t want to give away the secret to our dough, this basic recipe should get you started towards a tasty pizza.



This recipe will make a lot of pizzas, so adjust according to your needs.


2 1/2 cups (170ml) lukewarm water

2 tbsp (30ml) olive oil

5 tbsp (75 ml) sugar

2 tbsp (30 ml) salt

1 pkg dry yeast

4 1/2 cups (1125 ml) unbleached flour

2 cups (500 ml) semlina flour

More unbleached flour as needed

vegetable oil


*You will need an electric mixer for this recipe. Please do not allow young children to prepare this recipe unsupervised.



In a mixing bowl add water, sugar, salt, yeast and olive oil. Mix thoroughly for a minute, then let mixture stand for 5 minutes.


Add two cups (500 ml) Semolina flour, 4 1/2 cups (1125 ml) of unbleached flour and begin mixing a low speed for about 1 – 2 minutes. To obtain a smooth, homogeneous mixture, add unbleached flour if necessary (dough should not stick to the bowl). Remove dough from bowl and place on a lightly floured work surface.)


Divide the dough into 8 oz balls (aprox. 14 balls for this recipe) and roll each piece into a smoth ball, kneading it so all air pockets are removed. Once complete place the balls on a tray and place into your refrigerator. Using a pastry brush, coat the dough balls with vegetable oil and cover with a clean cloth. Place tray into the refrigerator and allow to rise for 12 to 24 hours.


That was easy!
