I did not make my own pizza dough for the longest time. But like fresh tortillas, once you go there and do things the fresh way, you can never go back! This Oregano Garlic Pizza Dough is one of my favorite variations to make. Oregano is a classic ingredient in pizza, and who doesn’t love garlic?!?
You can avoid the drab, bland, and boring dough by using this Oregano Garlic Pizza Dough. This dough is the perfect foundation for any flavor combination that you want to throw on it since it sticks to the classic ingredients of pizza and Italian cooking.

The dough does need a little prep time as it has to sit to rise, but other than that it is so incredibly easy and tastes SOOOOOO GOOD!
I make pizzas (affiliate links) with a stone that goes in my oven and I use a handy pizza peel that you see in the pictures. (This pizza peel is pretty close to what I have, and this pizza peel is just GORGEOUS). I think it is worth it to have these gems because the stone makes my pizza crisp up beautifully and the peel makes it so easy to get the dough/pizza in and out of the oven. But you can also use a plain cookie sheet if you want.
One batch will make either two thin crust 12″ pizzas or one thick crust. I always go for the thin crust as I like to make my pizza all about the toppings and sauce without too much dough getting in the way. Do you prefer thick or thin crust pizza?
Doesn’t this sucker look good?!?? Check out my recipe for this Red Wine and Oregano Pizza Sauce here! Check out the recipe for this Roasted Vegetable Pizza here, as well as a Balsamic Caprese Pizza not shown here!
If you do a thicker crust, you will want to blind bake it (the first step of baking without the toppings on it) longer to make sure that it cooks all the way thorough and you do not end up with a doughy center. And as always, the exact times will vary with your oven since each one seems to be a snowflake and cooks differently than all the rest, so just keep an eye out as you go along to make sure nothing is burning.
