This super easy pizza dough will make around 3 small-medium pizzas, depending on how thick you like the crust. I always double the recipe and freeze the extra for another day!
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 t salt
- 1 1/2 t sugar
- 1 T quick rise yeast
- 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
- 2 T olive oil
Pour water and yeast into a stand up mixer bowl or large bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. Add sugar, salt and olive oil and stir or mix lightly. To the wet mixture, add flour and either mix together with hands or mixer attachment until combined. Cover with plastic wrap (I like to spray mine with cooking spray!) and leave to rise for 1-2 hours.
To bake, roll out dough and place on a greased baking sheet. Top with ingredients and bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
To grill, make sure you are making several small pizzas instead of a giant one or you’ll have a mess on your hands! Pour a couple tablespoons of olive oil on each side before throwing on the grill (without toppings!!!!) for about 1-2 minutes on each side. You want to just barely start cooking the dough so it’ll maintain it’s shape when you load it up. Take the dough off the grill, add your favorite toppings and put it back on, over a low to medium heat for around 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and and before the bottom burns!
