One Market Restaurant's Chef Mark Dommen shares his tips and tricks for making pizza at home.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Making restaurant-quality pizza from home is easier than you think. Mark Dommen is the chef and partner of One Market in San Francisco and has mastered his pizza-making skills with the help of his daughters.

They invited us into their backyard for a pizza-making party and shared some tips and tricks along the way. You can't go wrong with this easy recipe that will add some fun to your weekend!


Makes 6 pizzas


5 cups 00 flour (or all-purpose flower)

1/2 teaspoon yeast

2 cups water

20 grams kosher salt


1. In a small bowl, whisk the yeast with 1/4 cup of the water and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

2. In a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the 5 cups of flour with the yeast mixture and the remaining 1 3/4 cups of water and mix at low speed for 1 minute. Increase the speed to medium and mix until all of the flour is incorporated, about 4 minutes. Add the salt and mix at medium speed until a soft, smooth dough forms, about 5 minutes longer.

3. Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and form it into a large ball. Transfer the dough to a bowl that was brushed with olive oil and cover the bowl securely with plastic wrap so that it's airtight. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 24 - 36 hours. It will double in size.

4. Let the pizza dough return to room temperature in the bowl, about 2 hours.

5. Lightly dust 1 large baking sheets with flour. Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and punch it down. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 6 even pieces. Form the pieces into balls and transfer them to the prepared baking sheets. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 8 hours or overnight. Bring back to room temperature before you use it. It will have doubled in size.
