Fast and Easy Pizza Dough


After posting my recipe for quick pizza dough, I had several comments about the dough being bland. I looked through my files and found another quick pizza dough that the ingredients would give the dough some flavor. It happen to come from My Kitchen Cafe, one of my favorite sites. So I knew it would be good and gave it a try. This dough has the addition of honey and garlic salt. The honey adds sweetness to the dough. I couldn’t really taste the garlic, so text time I think I’ll up it to 1tsp. If you liked the other dough, but want more flavor, give this one a try. You could even mix in a little Italian seasoning for even more flavor. Top with with my recipe for homemade pizza sauce or white pizza sauce.

Fast and Easy Pizza Dough

3 cups flour, more or less
1 tablespoon honey, heaping
1 tablespoon oil, heaping
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. (If using a pizza stone, let stone heat for at least 30 minutes in the oven before baking pizza.) Mix all pizza dough ingredients together, except the flour. Add flour and knead for a bit then put into pan (or use a pizza peel and pizza stone). Top dough with sauce and toppings. If baking in a sheet pan, bake for about 12 minutes (checking often) until crust is browned and cheese is golden and bubbly. If baking on the preheated pizza stone, slide pizza onto stone and bake for about 8 minutes. Makes 1 large pizza.

  • Love this. I use it as a bases and tweak it…a lot. I use a chili and garlic flavoured oil and parm cheese in the mix. Then lots of different seasonings on the crust before I stuff the edges with mozz cheese. yummy!

  • I thought i had lost this recipe and the website!! Let me tell you, my husband and I were extremely excited to find it again! Best pizza dough ever!!

  • I tried this dough and it was really hard to roll out into a circle. When I baked it it came out really thick. Do you have suggestions? I love the pizza sauce recipe you have posted.

  • Thanks for the advice. I'm not sure what is up with my oven. It is only a couple years old so it shouldn't be petering out on me yet! Maybe it is the operator? LOL! I usually do a crust that I make in the bread machine. When I do that one I usually start by baking the crust a little first, then adding the toppings. Maybe I just need to do that with this too.

  • Megan,
    I don't cook the dough at all before putting the toppings on. I am not sure what happened with yours. From what your are saying it sounds like the top of your oven was hotter than the bottom. But I'm not sure why. Next time try to cook it at a lower temperature for longer or maybe try to do individual sized pizzas.

  • Do you cook the dough a little while on the pan first, before you add the toppings? Just wondering because I just made this tonight and the top was burnt to an total crisp and the dough middle section of the crust was just barely cooked through. I ended up tossing both of my pizzas:(

  • Nope no time to rise here. That's part of the beauty of this recipe!

  • Hmmm…Just wondering…Do I need to allow time to let the dough rise?

  • I just made this recipe tonight and it was Delicious!!!! We also used your red pizza sauce, loved it. Thanks for sharing!

  • I made this on Saturday and loved it. My husband liked this one better than the last one you posted. I just thought they were both great. Thanks for another great recipe!

  • I use this recipe every single Saturday night and it never fails, so I’m glad you liked it, too!

  • Very easy and tasty! I upped the garlic and added italian seasoning. It was a big hit with the family. Thanks!

  • Simple and delicious – my kind of recipe. I make homemade pizza (with store bought dough) weekly, I will be trying this recipe out soon. Thanks!

  • You know we love our pizza:) Yours looks great!

  • mmmmmm I’m going to try this one tomorrow. Would you say that you like this one better than your other pizza dough recipe? I didn’t think it was bland at all.

  • This pizza looks so good! I think I’m going to have to make some this weekend as your pictures are causing me to crave it!
