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 allrecipes.com, but tweaked it a bit.

Directions

  1. 1. Dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes, until creamy.

  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.

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 Roasted Roma Tomatoes with a bit of their flavored cooking oil spread on the crust before anything else, spoonfuls of Creamy Ricotta Cheese (Homemade), 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 :)

I have never made my own pizza dough. I have always used packaged stuff and my family always complained LOL. This was so easy to make and tasted great. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Made for Spring PAC 2010.

This dough made a wonderful crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside pizza crust. I only let my dough rise for 30 minutes and I made a white pizza using White Pizza Sauce, some marinated grilled chicken and caramelized onions. It was delicious! Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
