The perfect pizza dough for everyone.
It’s not a myth. This dough is amazing and can transform from thin and crispy to light and fluffy with just a few minutes of raising. Ok, so maybe there are people who actually like gross pizza dough. In that case, this one isn’t perfect for you. For everyone else though, this dough recipe actually took me from semi-hating homemade pizza to prefering it over going out. Yup. Do you realize how much money that has saved us?? Pizza is one of my husband’s favorite foods and now we don’t have to spend $20+ every time we want some!
Not to mention, this dough is fast. If you you like thin and crispy crust like us, no rising required. At all. Ever. Mix, roll, top, bake. The end! Faster than buying a pizza from anywhere but Little Caesar’s or the frozen food aisle. Oh wait, you can make this and freeze it so scratch the freezer aisle! (I usually roll it out on my pan and top it with freezer friendly toppings, throw it in the freezer, pan and all. and bake it straight from frozen when I do this so I don’t have to wait for it to thaw enough to roll out.)
I owe it all to a friend of mine named Brenda who invited us over for dinner one night. She served us pizza and I knew there was nowhere around to buy any so I pounced on getting the recipe. (She’s a pretty amazing and talented woman and if you want, you can check out her website here.) She went one step further and gave me a whole pizza making lesson and I’ve been making delicious homemade pizza ever since!
So anyway, I’ll stop the chitty chat (Kung Fu Panda 3 anyone?) and give you the recipe so you can get to making some excellent homemade pizza that won’t disappoint. You. Are. Welcome.
So here is a picture of my dough all “rolled” out. I like to do it pretty thin because it raised a little while I’m topping it to make for a perfect crust for us. Also, it obviously doesn’t have to be perfect. I use my hands and it’s never perfectly even or smooth and always turns out delicious!
And while you’re at it, this dressing is excellent for a side salad or for dipping. It’s similar to ranch but different but delicious. Oh, just try it!
