5-Minute Pizza Dough Recipe by Hand
It's national pizza party day so Stacey shares a pizza dough by hand recipe that anyone can make for great homemade pizza in just minutes.
- 1 .25 ounce active dry yeast
- 1 tsp white sugar
- 2 1/2 cups bread flour
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
Stir in flour, salt, and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal.
Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.
The dough will keep in the refrigerator for a few days - but is best when baked after preparing.
