Easy Homemade Pizza Dough

Easy Homemade Pizza Dough

Ready in 3 hours

This is a very simple recipe and as long as you have a stand mixer the pizza dough is very easy to make! This recipe makes 1 to 2 pizza doughs depending on how big you make your pizzas.

"Very good. I used garlic salt instead of regular salt. The dough was too sticky so I had to add 1/2 cup of extra flour to the mixer. It made one 16" pizza after letting it rise for 2 hours punching it down after 1 hour. I took some to my neighbor and she said it looked like a restaurant pizza. I will definately be making this again. "

Ingredients

1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup Hot Water; (135*)

Original recipe makes 1

Servings  

Preparation

Put all dry ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer.

Put beater paddle on mixer and turn to low speed.

Fill measuring cup with the hottest water that will come out of your tap. (135 - 140*)

Add 1 TBS of olive oil to hot water.

Pour water into mixer. Turn speed to medium low.

Mix until ingredients form a ball.

Change to dough hook attachment and beat at medium speed for 15 minutes. This will create a shiny, firm dough ball.

Grease inside of a zip top bag.

Place dough ball inside bag.

The dough ball can be used almost immediately or after a few hours of rising. You can also make the day before and place in fridge. Remove from fridge 3 to 4 hours before needed. (This creates a more yeasty flavored dough. Tasty!)

When you are ready - press and stretch the dough out. If you have never done this before I am sure you can find a video to show you how to form a pizza. Add ingredients and place in a 500* oven on a cookie sheet or pizza stone for great pizza!

Very fast and easy. First time for me to make pizza dough. I made two batches, the first following the recipe as directed. The second batch I used garlic salt and a tsp of dried Italian Seasoning. Both turned out great. I used the second batch to make mini-pizzas and put some in the freezer for quick snacks.

Reading the reviews definitely helped. Needed the tips y'all gave, thanks! I'm a new cook though and still couldn't get it quite right. I'd recommend an easier recipe for not yet skilled cooks.

Made this dough last night-very tasty. Let it rise for a couple of hours, then made the pie. The fact that all the kneading is done in the stand mixer makes it my new go to pizza dough.

This will work best if you have a stand mixer. If you don't you can bring the ball together inside a food processor. You will have to kneed by hand though. These can be kept in the fridge for 4 - 5 days. They get really flavorful! You can freeze them too [I posted this recipe.]
