Makes 2 balls ( enough for two 9 1/2-inch pizzas)

Hazelnuts add a toasty note to this dough while giving it a pleasantly chewy texture. Use the recipe to make our Broccoli Rabe Pizza; Butternut Squash Pizza; or Pepper, Mushroom, and Onion Pizza.


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for bowl

  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees)

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast (one ¼-ounce envelope)

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for surface and hands

  • ½ cup roasted hazelnut meal

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage

  • Coarse salt


  1. Lightly oil a medium bowl. Stir together water and yeast in a large bowl; let stand until foamy. Stir in oil. Add flour, hazelnut meal, sage, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt; stir until dough forms. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead with floured hands until smooth.

  2. Transfer to oiled bowl, turning to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside in a warm, draft-free place until dough has doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Divide dough into 2 balls.
