Easy Pizza Dough


I have been looking for the right recipe for easy pizza dough. On that does not require a long time to rise. One that rises in less than an hour while I am making the pizza sauce, cutting up toppings, and stuff like that. I thought this recipe would take at least an hour, but it was really ready to go in 45 minutes. Next time, I might even try it even earlier. Anyway, I was looking for something quick in which to make a stromboli, and this worked perfectly. I will try it with pizza next. In the meantime, enjoy! Oh, and the stromboli recipe I will post tomorrow.

Easy Pizza Dough


  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 cup warm water (120 degrees)
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp olive oil, plus more for oiling the bowl
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour, plus more for working dough


  1. In the bowl of the mixer add the teaspoon of honey.
  2. Pour in 1 cup of warm water and whisk.
  3. Sprinkle in the packet of yeast and let it sit and get all puffy.
  4. Pour in olive oil, salt, and a cup of the flour.
  5. Mix adding the rest of the flour gradually.
  6. Keep mixing until the dough pulls easily from the sides of the bowl.
  7. Add more flour if necessary {a couple tablespoons at a time}.
  8. Add a splash of olive oil to a large, clean bowl.
  9. Form the dough into a ball and place it into the bowl.
  10. Toss the dough ball around and up the sides of the bowl to coat.
  11. Cover with a towel and let the dough rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  12. Once the dough has risen, punch the dough down until deflated.
  13. Lightly flour a work surface and the dough ball.
  14. Reshape it into a ball.
  15. Using your fingers press the dough out to your desired size and shape.
