The Best Pizza Dough

Great pizza bread makes great pizza. And you can make great pizza bread in one hour, from starting the dough to sliding the prepared pizza into the oven with this easy recipe.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 2 pizza crusts

Cook Time: 20-30 min  

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup olive oil
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour


Directions

In a large bowl, combine water with yeast, salt, sugar, and olive oil. Let sit for five minutes before beginning to add the flour.


Stir in flour until the dough is stiff enough to knead. Add flour a little at a time. The amount of flour is approximate; exact amount may vary slightly. Knead dough until smooth and elastic–-just a few minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl; cover. Let rise until doubled. (Using rapid-rise yeast, unless your house is very cold, the rise time should be approximately 30 minutes.)

After dough has risen, roll out directly onto a greased pizza pan, sprinkling flour on top of the dough to keep it from sticking.

I like to use a small plastic cup to roll out pizza dough instead of a rolling pin because the smaller size is easier to manage with the raised edges of a pizza pan.

Before adding any sauce and toppings, bake pizza bread at 400-degrees for about 8 minutes. Take out pizza bread. Add sauce and toppings as desired. Put completed pizza back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes. If I’m baking two at a time, halfway into the baking time I switch the pizzas on the oven racks.

For dessert pizza, use melted butter and a mix of sugar and cinnamon, or add fruit!

Another of my favorite ways to fix pizza is to skip the sauce entirely. I sprinkle olive oil on top of the prepared, pre-baked pizza bread (in place of sauce) then add my toppings. I like to use Swiss cheese, crumbled bacon, and onions and/or peppers. Yum!

    I made this pizza dough for dinner tonight, topped with tomato sauce, italian seasoning, red and green bell peppers, vidalia onions, black olives, sliced mushrooms, and chopped pepperoni. Italian Mozzarella covered it all. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Definately a new family favorite!

    So you know what I do when I have a house full of 11 y.o. boys, especially when it’s rainy? I look on Farm Bell Recipes for something I think the kids will enjoy making and eating and let them have at it. Of course, I get the ingredients set out (sometimes mixed up ahead of time) but they are the makers of their food destiny! LOL, I am quite surprised and impressed that they actually enjoy making foods! Maybe it’s the mess they can get into, maybe because they get to eat what they make….? Ha, Ha, they are learning things while doing this and they don’t even know it. Man, I am sneaky 😉 Angelina in Kansas

      Good idea Angelina, I used to do that for my girls but never thought to do that for the boys.Oh well, both boys are good cooks. However now I have an eleven yr. old grandson.

    This dough is excellent! It works up easily and quickly, the timing is right on for rising and baking. I used 1 cup whey and 1/2 cup water for the liquid.
