Ultra Quick Pizza Dough Recipe

This pizza dough recipe is ideal for when you are in a hurry because you do not need to leave it overnight in the refrigerator to rise or in a warm place for several hours either. This recipe uses half the dough to make the crust of one pizza.

You can freeze the rest in a plastic bag for up to 6 months and thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. If you want to know how to make pizza dough for a hungry family, try this recipe. This is the quickest way to make a great pizza crust and you can double the recipe to make plenty of dough for future pizzas since it freezes so well.

Whoever knew making a pizza crust from scratch could be this quick and easy? Forget long kneading times, allowing it to prove and rise, or spending all afternoon waiting for your dough to be ready to turn into a pizza. Instead, this recipe allows you to combine the ingredients, knead it briefly, and then you can add your toppings and bake the resulting pizzas.

This recipe makes 2 pizzas but you could just as easily make 4 individual ones or 1 large one if your oven is big enough. That is part of the charm of making your own pizza dough. You get to choose the shape and size of your pizza. This is so quick to make you can preheat the oven before you begin and when the oven gets to the right temperature your pizzas should be ready to go in.
