Only a 15-minute rise time! Add a pinch of salt or garlic salt if you wish, but I never do. Easy and quick dinner!


  1. Mix yeast in warm water until dissolved.
  2. Stir in oil and flour until it forms a dough ball.
  3. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel, place on top of your stove while the oven is warming up.
  4. Let rise for 15 minutes.
  5. Spread on pizza pan, jelly roll pan or baking stone (I've used them all).
  6. Top with your favorite sauce, meats, veggies, herbs and/or cheeses!

Very good pizza dough! I was happy to find something fast as it was dinnertime by the time I decided to make pizza. I used 1/2 c whole wheat flour and the rest white. When dissolving the yeast into the water I added a tsp or so of sugar, and then into the dough I added 1 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 tsp oregano and it came out great. Thanks!

Fabulous recipe - I did bake just the crust for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Then added the toppings and baked for another 12-14 minutes at the same temp. One of the best pizzas we/ve ever had! Thanks!

This recipe is great and just seems to get better each time we make it. Don't neglect the kneading time on the dough -- it really makes a difference. Knead it for a good 5 minutes to get a nice texture. We spread it out on a pizza pan and brush it with a mixture of olive oil and sauteed garlic, and use tomato-basil feta cheese, sliced tomatoes, pepperoni, and a sprinkle of ground rosemary on top. I don't think we'll ever eat from a pizza place again!
