The minimum page count is 1.

There is no definitive number of how many pages you should have. You should have as many pages as you need, or as many as you need to explain and educate the visitor for the subject or purchase or whatever your website is targeted towards.

If you treat your website like fishing, and equate pages to lines in the water. The more fishing lines and hooks you have out there, the more fish you could potentially catch. Of course, if you're in an ocean and you have just 1 hook, you better make sure you're fishing in the right area :)

Same with your website. You can have 1,000 pages, but if the content is not great, and the users have no interest in what you're doing, then 1,000 pages isn't going to do anything for you.

Just like how much text should be on a page.... you need as much as you need to explain something to someone. If that means it's 3 sentences or it's a 17,000 words that's as much as it takes. This post/response is a good example too. I could have left it as 1 sentence, it's accurate, or I can have 5 paragraphs of further, relative info.

If you are planning on collecting any kind of data, using cookies, etc. then I'd say two.

The front page, and a page with terms, privacy, cookies info, etc.
