Easy Peezy Pizza Dough

This recipe is quick, easy, and tastes great! A winner in my book.

We eat pizza a lot!! My husband not so much, but the rest of us at least three times a week.  More than the average family.  Especially since I got my very own pizza oven that makes pizza in five minutes, we just can’t stop eating the stuff. It’s even become a contest on who makes the prettiest pizza. My son always loses he says, “I just want to eat it, I don’t care how it looks.” But the ladies in the house, competition on. Although I hold the culinary degree, sadly I admit I don’t always win.

I usually make this dough and leave it in a covered bowl in the refrigerator for whoever needs to satisfy their pizza craving. If I know I need pizza made quick, I par-cook (roll out and cook slightly) so they are “delicious topping” ready. My kids love that of course. Less work for them. But I don’t make a habit of doing it for them. “If you don’t work you don’t eat!” lol I tell them, “The Bible says that not me!”

Some pizza dough recipes call for 18 hours, hmmmm I’m sure they taste good but what if I want pizza now? This recipe takes less than 10 minutes to make. It’s not your 18 hour pizza dough by far but it delivers a pretty good pizza dough. Want to spruce this basic recipe up? Add some Olive Oil or chopped herbs. My favorite is rosemary!

Easy Pizza Dough


  • .25oz (1 packet ) Yeast

  • 1 cup Water, wrist warm *See Note

  • 1 tsp Sugar

  • 1 1/2 cup Bread Flour

  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 1 TBS Olive Oil

  • 1 TBS Chopped herbs (optional)


  • Sprinkle the yeast into the cup of water.

  • Then sprinkle the sugar into the cup of water, and allow the yeast to foam. This process may take a couple minutes.

  • While the yeast is foaming, in your mixing bowl, add the flours, salt, and chopped herbs if using.

  • When the yeast has foamed, turn your mixer on low. Slowly pour in your yeast mixture and the olive oil. Let it mix on low until the dough is combined, about 3 or 4 minutes. (If doing dough by hand, knead dough until the all ingredients have combined.)

  • Let it rest for 5 minutes, and then use it as desired.


An easy trick to achieve the correct temperature for your yeast is to make it wrist warm. Turn your water on between hot and warm. Then quickly put your wrist under it and then remove it. If it is too hot for your wrist, then it's too hot for your yeast. You want it to be just as hot as your wrist can stand. A little warmer than a baby's bottle if you've ever made one.
