If you’re looking for a quick pizza dough recipe that will have your pizza ready in no time, this is it. This recipe is easy to follow and the result is a perfect pizza every time. All you need are a few basic ingredients, some measuring cups and spoons, and a pizza pan. Plus, this recipe can be doubled or halved depending on how much pizza you want to make.
To get started, let’s gather the ingredients:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons instant yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup warm water
Instructions for Quick Pizza Dough
Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients
In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Stir the ingredients together to ensure they are evenly distributed.
Step 2: Add the wet ingredients
Add the olive oil and warm water to the dry ingredients and mix together until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Step 3: Knead the dough
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead it for about 5 minutes. Kneading the dough helps to develop the gluten strands and give the dough a better texture. If the dough is too dry, add a tablespoon of water at a time until the dough is the right consistency.
Step 4: Let the dough rise
Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth. Let the dough rise for about an hour in a warm place. The dough should double in size.
Step 5: Roll out the dough
Once the dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a floured surface and roll it out. You can use a rolling pin or a pasta roller if you have one. Roll the dough until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
Step 6: Top and bake
Transfer the dough to a greased pizza pan and top with your favorite toppings. Bake the pizza at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
Tips for Making the Perfect Pizza
Making the perfect pizza requires a few simple tips.
- Make sure the dough is at room temperature before you roll it out.
- Use a baking stone to help the pizza cook evenly.
- Pre-bake the crust for a few minutes before adding the toppings.
- Add the cheese last, so it doesn’t burn.
- Don’t overload the pizza with toppings, as this can make the crust soggy.
- Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing.
- For an extra crispy crust, brush the crust with olive oil before baking.
