Ultimate Simple Dough Recipe
This foolproof Ultimate Simple Dough Recipe can be used for practically ANYTHING: cinnamon rolls, bread rolls, sandwich bread or pizza!
Yield: 1 loaf, 1 pizza, or 12-15 rolls
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk
  • ⅓ cup lukewarm water
  • 1 package (2¼ teaspoons) RED STAR Platinum yeast
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar OR honey
  • 3¾ cups (476 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, stir together the milk, water, and yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes, or until the yeast is foamy and dissolved. Add in the egg and sugar, stirring to combine.
  2. Add in half the flour, stirring until absorbed. Add in the salt. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add in the remaining flour until combined. Increase speed to medium low and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 7 minutes.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place inside a greased mixing bowl. Turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 1 to 1½ hours.
  4. Punch the dough down. Now the dough is ready to be shaped and used as you wish. If making any rolls or loaves, allow the dough to rise again after being shaped until it’s puffy, about 30 minutes to 1 hour, before baking.
