I usually like to use this yeast bread recipe to make my pizza dough, however, there are days when I just don’t have the extra time to dedicate to making it. So, on those days, I love this quick and easy no-knead dough. I can mix it up in my mixer, put it in a bowl to let it rise, and it’s ready when dinner time rolls around. (You’ll have to forgive me. I forgot to take pictures).
- 4 cups flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons instant yeast
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- 1 ½ cups lukewarm water
- 1 teaspoon oil
Place flour, yeast, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer, and using the paddle attachment, mix on low speed (very important or you’ll have a mess – ask me how I know) until combined. Add water and mix until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl – about 30 to 60 seconds. You just want to make sure the ingredients combine. The dough should be a bit sticky.
Drizzle the oil around the sides and bottom of a large bowl. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl, form into a ball, and place it into the large bowl. Turn the dough once to make sure it gets coated with the oil. Cover and let it set in a warm place to rise for about 2-3 hours; until the dough is doubled in size.
Once it has risen, remove it from the bowl and shape it into a circle or rectangle, whatever your desired pizza shape. Use it in your favorite pizza recipe.
