Quick Beer Pizza Dough

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
YIELD: 2 pizzas




  • Mix and knead together all the ingredients - by hand, mixer or bread machine - until you've made a smooth, soft dough. Cover the dough, and allow it to rise for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 500F with a pizza stone (if you are using one) on a lower rack.
  • Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a 10" to 12" round.
  • Place the rounds on parchment paper, if you're going to use a pizza stone. Or place the dough on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Transfer the pizzas, parchment and all to the baking stone. Or place the pans in the oven. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the oven, top as desired, and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, until the bottom crust is crisp and the cheese is bubbly and browned.
  • Remove from the oven, and serve hot.
