The Best Pizza Dough
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling
Makes2 crusts (8 servings each)
Good pillow-y pizza dough, delicious recipe, and I have tried many, and am Italian. Works well with calzones too. The person who said it was tough might have over-kneaded it, or should try King Arthur All purpose flour. 00 Flour is best though, and easy to buy online, and is good for pastries too. Tip: Before adding tomato sauce, put on a sheen of olive oil on top and it wont get soggy, then half bake before adding the other toppings. I also thicken the sauce with a little tomato paste, and I never over do the sauce. Buon Appetito!
Not good, too chewy and leftovers were definitely tough. I'll not make again.
I have used this recipe many times with and without herbs. It rolls out beautifully. I do grill the base for a few minutes and then add pesto as sauce with lots of sauteed veggies topped with lots of cheese. My family loves this meal. So easy to do, great for the summer.
I'm 8 and I am wanting to make this for my fam.
Are you supposed to cook the dough before putting the toppings on? Just checking...
Has anyone tried baking the crust on a grill?
This recipe creates a very light consistency non chewy texture crust. I baked at 425F for twenty five minutes after adding toppings.
Our family go-to recipe for "Make Your Own Pizza" night. I have started adding a few add-ins to flavor up the crust a little bit (garlic, basil, oregano) and the kids love it. Our favorite time to use this recipe is when we are having another family over. I can prep the crust ahead of time and then everybody gets to roll out the shape they desire and top it how ever they desire. We set up a station for rolling dough and another for toppings. It's such a fun activity!
I made this yesterday and it was FABULOUS! Followed the directions written except I used 1 tsp of instant yeast, adding it directly into the flour mixture. I also added 1 tsp of garlic powder and 2 tsps of dried Italian Seasoning. The texture was perfect and tasted yummy. There is enough dough for two large (14" thin crust) pizzas. This will be my go-to pizza dough recipe.
Incredible! Delicious- flavorful, amazing texture and EASY! This was a great recipe and I’m so happy we have it now for Friday’s during the quarantine!!!
