There are times when we want to make a pizza but we have no time to make a pizza dough. There are also times when we just don’t feel like putting so much of our time into making such a simple thing. So what do we do then? Are we willing to sacrifice the tastiness of homemade pizza for a commercially made pizza? If only there was a quick pizza dough recipe that we could follow and make our own pizza. And that’s where the recipe that I’m going to show you comes into action. It took me a lot of time to muster a quick pizza dough recipe that not only take a little bit of time to prepare but also tastes good. I like this recipe because you don’t need to wait for the dough to raise.
The following quick pizza dough recipe makes about two 12 inch pizza crusts. The time required to make this dough is about 15 minutes. To make this dough you are going to need the following ingredients:
- 3 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 pckg of Rapid Rise Yeast
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of warm water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Mix in two cups of flour with yeast and salt in a large bowl. Add in the water and olive oil to the flour mixture. Keep on folding the dough and add in the rest of the flour slowly until the dough becomes elastic and does not stick to the bowl. The entire process shouldn’t take you more than five minutes altogether.
Now cover the bowl with something and put it away in a warm place for ten minutes. The reason we have to do this is because the dough needs some time to rise. It will also make your pizza crust taste better. After the time is up, slightly flour a flat surface and then roll out the dough on it. Your dough is now done and ready to be used as your pizza crust.
As you can see above, the recipe is very easy to follow and shouldn’t take you too long to make it. You can experiment with the dough by adding some extra ingredients such as basil, oregano, or garlic. By doing so you will create unique pizza dough that is suitable for different kinds of pizzas. Optionally, you can also add in some cheese to the dough to create a cheesy pizza crust. This is the reason why making your own homemade pizza crust is always better than buying a crust at a store. I hope that the recipe was helpful to you and that you enjoyed reading it.
