Easy Pizza Dough is an understatement. This recipe comes together SUPER fast and only takes 20 minutes to rest. Not all day and there’s no punching involved! This is a sponsored post.
One of my easiest and most go-to recipes for a busy weeknight is homemade pizza’s. In my house we like to call them “makeyourown” pizza’s. I lay out all of the ingredients and let everyone load them up just the way they like it. But first, you have to start with a great pizza dough recipe. Yes, there are tons of recipes out there that take several hours of rising and punching, but on a weeknight, nobody’s got time for that. So enter my go-to recipe for the easiest pizza dough EVER!
Making the dough is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Start by adding 2 cups of all purpose flour to you food processor. Add a teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and a packet of active dry yeast. Give it a quick whiz to incorporate it and then add in 3/4 cup warm water with 2 teaspoons olive oil. Run the food processor until the dough has come together. Then let it run for another 60 seconds to “knead” it.
Turn the dough out onto a floured board and give it a couple of kneads to form a nice smooth ball.
Cover it with a glass bowl and let it rest for 20 minutes.
After it’s rested, then you can quarter the dough and make 4 personal pizzas or roll it out onto a round pizza pan and make one family sized pizza. This recipe also works great to make grilled pizzas, cheesy dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls and so many other yeasty delicious things.
