I love this pizza dough! It is so quick and easy, and makes a great dough. A favorite for pizza night at my house! I found it originally on, but tweaked it a bit.

Great pizza dough! I let mine rise for the full 2 hours while I got some other stuff done, then I made a lovely pizza topped with fresh spinach leaves, chopped Recipe#406588 with a bit of their flavored cooking oil spread on the crust before anything else, spoonfuls of Recipe#329890, sliced fresh mozzarella balls, and some prepackaged grilled sliced chicken breast. I sprinkled the baked pizza with a handful of fresh chopped basil leaves before serving. It turned out like a twist on Bertucci's Chicken Margarita pizza, tasted yummy and was pretty to look at, too! My crust didn't really brown, even though I baked it on a pizza stone for the full amount of time, but it was decently crisp on the bottom, so I didn't worry so much about the color. I actually liked it even better reheated the next day. This is definitely going in my keepers file, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring '10 :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes, until creamy.
  2. 2. Add in the rest of ingredients except corn meal. Stir vigorously to form a stiff, wet dough. You may need to add another 1/4 cup flour to make the right consistency.
  3. 3. Cover and set aside; let rise at least 30 minutes (I usually let it rise 2 hours).
  4. 4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray pizza pan with cooking spray and sprinkle liberally with corn meal.
  5. 5. Grease hands with oil. Press dough onto pan to desired thickness.
  6. 6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. 7. Remove from oven; add toppings as desired. Cook an additional 15-20 minutes or until crust is browned and crispy on the bottom.
