So after making the Chicago-style garlic and butter pizza crust, I decided I wanted to get a few more yummy pizza recipes to add to my collection. I found a recipe for quick pizza dough at Baking Like Betty. It was a pizza dough that you mix up and use right then, no waiting or rising. So I gave it a try over the weekend.
This quick pizza dough was simple to make and the whole family loved it. It includes all the ingredients you would expect. It uses yeast, water, sugar, salt, oil, and flour. You can mix it by hand with a wooden spoon. However, I like to let my kitchen aid do all the work. Then once you have the dough made, allow it to rest for 5 minutes before using it. This allows the gluten to relax making it easier to shape the dough for your pizza.
Tomorrow I’ll share a recipe for a white pizza sauce that I tried this weekend too. Thanks Lisa for this quick pizza crust recipe! We topped this crust with my homemade pizza sauce and then went for good old pepperoni and cheese.
- CORNMEAL (OPTIONAL)
Quick Pizza Dough
Real Mom Kitchen
- 1 pkg yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp oil
- 2 ½ cup flour
- 2 Tbsp cornmeal optional for sprinkling on cookie sheet
- Dissolve yeast in warm water and add sugar. Let yeast sit about 10 minutes (you want it good and foamy). Stir in remaining ingredients until blended. Beat vigorously 20 strokes. (I did this all in my kitchen aid)
- Allow dough to rest 5 minutes in a bowl with saran wrap or a towel over it. Preheat oven to 425, spread dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal (optional). Top with desired toppings and bake for 20 minutes (I used a pizza stone and mine was ready in 15 minutes). This makes 1 (14 inch) pizza.
