With just 20 minutes of prep and 5 ingredients, this pizza dough is ready to be put in the oven! No yeast, rising or waiting is required and it turns out perfectly every time!
There is something about homemade pizza that is just soooo delicious, am I right? It doesn’t even compare to its frozen, boring, store-bought counterpart. I usually have frozen pizza dough sitting in my freezer, ready to be thawed and rolled out. On those Friday nights when my freezer is empty, this SUPER EASY no-yeast pizza dough recipe saves me! I would consider it a minor miracle how easily this dough comes together and how perfectly it turns out with such little effort. The end result is a perfect crust, not too thin and not too thick. Pile all the toppings on that you and your family love!
Do I need yeast for this pizza dough recipe?
NO! That’s what is so miraculous about it! This is a no-nonsense recipe for those of us who have better things to do than to watch dough rise and rise and rise. I’m telling you, it’s a dream! When you taste the end result, I promise you’ll never know the difference. It’ll kinda blow your mind.
Do I need to pre-bake the crust?
Nope! Load the pizza toppings onto the uncooked dough and pop it in the oven. That’s it! The dough will bake perfectly throughout every single time.
A few notes to ensure you make the best homemade pizza possible:
As long as you’re going homemade for the crust, you may as well make your own Homemade Pizza Sauce, too! It is super easy and will taste way better than anything you can find in the store. It’s worth the tiny bit of effort required!
When it comes to toppings, the world really is your oyster. I like to get a bit crazy with my pizza creations (proof: Pickle Pizza and Olive Pizza), but feel free to keep it simple. Or go nuts! A few topping options to choose from: sausage, bacon crumbles, pepperoni, green peppers, onions, mushrooms and black olives, just to name a few!
The best cheeses to use on homemade pizza are mozzarella, provolone and cheddar.
Baking time for pizzas will vary by a bit, depending on how many toppings you throw on. Make use of your oven light and start peeking in around the 15-minute mark. The crust will be a golden brown color when the pizza is done and the cheese will be melted uniformly all over the surface.
That’s it! Now get pizza-making! Enjoy, friends, and please come back to leave a comment. Let me know what pizza creation you put together and how it turned out!
