Wherever I’ve lived – Chicago, Phoenix, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, I’ve made it a point, to find the best pizza near me.
I’ve rallied the family to take part as well, but that certainly hasn’t been hard to do. haha

When I was growing up, Pizza Hut was our go-to.
I don’t remember Mom ever making it, but Grandma most certainly did.
I mean, if a woman was baking Italian bread practically every week, then you know she most certainly had a recipe for pizza dough.

Believe me when I say, this one I’m sharing with you today isbetter!
You might just want it to be pizza night every night of the week, too.
Pair it with strawberry spinach salad, and it will be a dinner the family won’t soon forget.
You might even want to serve a frozen Bahama mama or two with it for the adults and these copycat frosted lemonades for the kids.

Also, Rebecca has not just one cookbook credit to her name.
She has two!
Her third, The Ultimate Guide to Vegetable Side Dishes set to release October, 20, 2020.

Her first, Not Your Mama’s Canning Book: Modern Canned Goods and What to Make with Them, is a great book for people who are interested in learning to preserve food but don’t know where to start.
So, suffice it to say that Rebecca Lindamood most definitely knows her stuff and her way around the kitchen.
She’s a phenomenal teacher as well, giving clear and easy instructions in ALL of her recipes – whether in her books or on her blog.

I cannot stress this enough, you and everyone you know NEEDS this cookbook!
And I’m not saying that because Rebecca’s a really good friend, or a fellow avid Red Sox fan. She most certainly is both of those, but I’d still be saying it if she wasn’t.

If you like carbs (and Iknow you do!), and or baking bread, this book is a must-have in every kitchen.
From the World’s Fastest Sandwich Bread, English muffins, to pretzels, bagels and more, this book’s got it!

What are the ingredients do I need to make pizza dough?

  • flour
    you can use all-purpose flour or “OO” flour which is an Italian-style flour.
  • kosher salt
  • active dry yeast
  • lukewarm water
  • olive oil

How do you make pizza crust from scratch?

  1. Whisk together the flour, salt and yeast in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour in the water and olive oil.
  3. Stir together with a sturdy wooden spoon until a shaggy dough is formed.
  4. Knead for 10 minutes until dough is smooth, elastic and stretchy.
    This can be done by hand or in your stand mixer on medium.
  5. Place dough back into bowl, cover and let it rise for 1-2 hours until double in size.

What to make with this dough?

As I said earlier, this recipe is the ONLY one I will use from now on when making my pepperoni bread or spinach pepperoni bread.
It just makes both of these recipes SO much better!
The crust is light, fluffy, and so much more delicious than doughs I’ve used in the past.
It is the perfect pizza crust for her Classic Homestyle Sheet Pan Pizza (page 40).

When making a pizza, how long do I cook it?

  • When making a sheet pan pizza, preheat your oven to 425°F, and bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until the crust is set and has golden brown edges.
  • When making the 12-inch (30 cm) or 10-inch (25 cm) round pizzas, preheat the oven to 425°F. and bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is set and is golden around the edges.

I’ve used it to make these Parmesan Bread Bites, and they were delicious! They’re super easy to make once the dough has been made, and lots of fun to pop into your mouth after dipping them in some marinara.

One easy 5-ingredient Pizza Dough recipe that will make 3 Pizzas! (6)
I’ll also be using it for my taco braid,Denver scrambled breakfast braid, and this one, too!
I’m also going to have to use it for the grilled Margherita pizza and grilled spinach, Feta and chicken pizza.
Once we get a grill, that is.

Rebecca suggests using it in other recipes in her book as well, such as the Italian-style Wood-Fired pizza, Stone-Cooked Pizza (page 43) or Cool-Kitchen Grilled Pizza (page 44).
You can also make the Better Than Pizzeria Garlic Knots (page 53) and “Choose Your Own Adventure” Meat-and-Cheese Calzones (page 50).
So, see what I’m telling you?? You NEED this book!

How long does pizza dough last in the fridge?

This dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 6 days.

To store:label a zipper-top freezer bag with the size of the pizza. (Use one bag per round of dough you wish to use later.) Drizzle 2 teaspoons of olive oil in each bag, rub around with your hands to make sure the inside is well coated, and insert one dough ball into each prepared bag.

To use refrigerated dough: place the dough in its bag on the kitchen counter and allow it to come to room temperature and rise for an hour before you want to use it and bake it.

Can I freeze pizza dough?

You most certainly can!
One thing I absolutely LOVE about this recipe is that it makes enough dough for me to use for dinner and then I can freeze the rest to use later.

You can store it in the freezer for up to 3 months before using.
Follow the directions above for storing it in zipper-top freezer bags.

To use frozen dough: transfer the bag of dough to the refrigerator the day before you plan to use it, then onto the counter to come to room temperature and hour before you wish to bake it.

Let’s not delay this any longer. On to the recipe!

      Rosanna,
      First, make sure that you’re using “Active Dry Yeast” and not “cake yeast”. If it is “cake yeast” then you’ll have to Google the equivalent.
      Follow the directions as posted in the recipe, mixing it with the salt and flour, no need to activate it and let it rise in water first.

    can i use bread flour

    Reply

    • One easy 5-ingredient Pizza Dough recipe that will make 3 Pizzas! (26)Lynne says

      Judith, you can definitely use bread flour (in the same amount) as many people do use it for making pizza dough. Bread flour has a higher gluten content than all-purpose flour, and the dough might be a little more difficult to form because of it, but you’ll get a nice crispy crust on the outside with a good chewiness and texture inside.
      Hope you like it, and please let me know how it turns out!

          Jayy, When making the 12-inch (30 cm) or 10-inch (25 cm) round pizzas, preheat the oven to 425°F. and bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is set and is golden around the edges. 8 and 10 inch pizzas would be the same temp and shorter cooking time as well.

    I misplaced my “go to” recipe for Pizza Dough, so I resorted to the internet for something new, found yours, and gave it a try.
    the dough was stiff and nearly impossible to work, flavourless, uninspired nonsense, and I hope you take this rediculous attempt at pizza dough down from your web site. I know you need filler recipes to keep your income stream alive and relavent, but this was terrible.
    I’ve had better dough come out of premade pouches.

That being said, if you’re going to try it, my suggestion would be to either half the recipe or make a third of it so that if it doesn’t work, you haven’t wasted a lot of money on ingredients.

    When you say only use 1/3 of the pizza dough for the Parmesan bites is it cut the ingredients to measure down to 1/3 ? Or just make the Pizza dough in its entirety then only use 1/3 of it for the bread bites??

      Helen, from the author of the recipe, Rebecca Lindamood of Foodie with Family, “That’ll work fine…You’ll just have to let the dough rest a little longer because the extra gluten will make it a little harder to roll out. You can just mitigate this by letting the dough sit in the fridge a day or so before you use it.”

    I used this recipe last night to make two large round pizzas. While this is certainly simple to make, the finished product was quite doughy/chewy and tasteless, not something I would eat and I would never serve this to family or guests. If I could give it a zero-star rating, I would. Not one to ever try again.

      Raymond, I am sorry to hear that it didn’t turn out for you, and I appreciate your feedback. If the finished product was as you say, “quite doughy/chewy and tasteless”, it could have been that the dough was kneaded too much and/or that too much flour was added. Not knowing exactly how you made it, I can’t say exactly what the issue may have been.

    I am not finished yet, but I wanted to know if you could help me! The dough was so dry and tough!! It is an hour and a half in, and it is rising, but not double. I used 00 flour, (8 cups – I can’t imagine 9 1/2 cups!), bough new yeast, which started bubbling the minute I put the water in! and followed the directions to a tee. It was so hard to manipulate, I wet my hands three times and kneaded for 15 minutes, then said a prayer and covered it. I would appreciate any constructive criticism you could give me. Thank you!!

    I’ve made this dough twice. Both times, the results have been perfect!! I use Caputo 00 Flour and followed the 1KG guideline. Simply perfect! The crust was cracker like outside and chewy on the inside. I do a bunch of different doughs (Napoli, Detroit, Sicilian). Bang for the buck goes to this one! You get soooooo much dough. I made two XL baking sheets and they were perfect in thickness. I also did the three pan as suggested and they were equally as good. Super flexible and excellent overall recipe!!

    Thanks a bunch!!!

    This was a very easy and very good dough. We had a family pizza party and they all loved it.

    What happens if you accidentally leave your pizza dough in the refrigerator for 10 days is it still safe to use it

      Tanya, I would advise against using it. When left more than 6 days, the yeast won’t allow the dough to rise while it’s baking and harmful bacteria might begin to develop. You aren’t alone! I’ve left so many different things in my fridge with the best of intentions for dinners, etc. only to throw them away because things have come up or we’ve gone out to eat.
      I would suggest giving it another go and use some fresh dough.

    Question: why add the yeast to dry ingredients and not activate in water first?

      Sue, I spoke with the creator of this recipe, Rebecca Lindamood of the website, Foodie with Family, and she said: “because it disperses more easily and it’s totally unnecessary to dissolve modern yeast we get in the US first! It’s made by a different process than our grandma’s yeast so is much more vigorous much more quickly!”
      I didn’t know that either, so I’m glad you asked!
      Hope that helps!

    This pizza dough was fabulous!! Definitely the best taste and texture of any homemade dough I’ve made in the past. I love that I can put the extra in the freezer and take it out when I want to make pizza again!

    This crust is so good! It rose beautifully, shaped just as nice, and baked it on a pizza stone which made the bottom so crispy. Definitely a keeper recipe! So glad I have 2 more in the freezer.

    I would like to try smoking a pizza. We are thinking because our smoker doesn’t get hot enough to bake the crust we should bake it for a few minutes in the oven before adding toppings then put in the smoker, any advise? Also can a baked crust be frozen?

      Pam, I have no experience with a smoker, so unfortunately, my guess is as good as yours. I would suggest Googling how to do it as I’m sure there’s someone who’s done it, and can tell you how to do it perfectly.
      Also, a baked crust can be frozen. Bake the crust without any toppings then cool it off completely before wrapping tightly in plastic wrap. It should be good in the freezer for up to 1 month, so be sure to put the date on it. To thaw, put it into the fridge overnight.
      enjoy!
