Homemade pizza, I can't think of a better comfort food meal. We like to make pizza dough and each of us has our own crust to do with as we please! Family pizza nights are full of laughs and fun in the kitchen. We make a pizza bar with all the topping from tomato sauce to olives and everything in between. I know you'll love this quick and easy thin crust pizza dough as much as we do.
Quick and Easy Thin Crust Pizza Dough
- 15 oz (3 cups) Flour
- 1 tbsp Yeast
- 1 tbsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 9 fl oz Warm Water
- BY HAND: Place flour into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Add yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil and water and stir until combined. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5–10 minutes or until a smooth ball forms.
- IN MIXER: Place flour into a stand mixers bowl and make a well in the center. Use dough hook. Add yeast, sugar, salt, olive oil and water and turn on low combined (about 3 minutes). Turn to medium and knead for 5–10 minutes or until a smooth ball forms.
- BOTH: Place dough ball into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap or clean cloth. Set in a warm place for 30 minutes or until dough has doubled. Turn dough out on a floured surface and punch the dough to remove excess air, knead lightly.
- Divide dough into 4 and make your own personal pizza!
Don't forget to grab our pizza sauce recipe too! My favorite toppings are sun dried tomatoes with olives and feta cheese while the kids like simple pepperoni with cheese. The possibilities are endless when you think about it and you can get all the food groups into one meal.
