Best Quick Homemade Pizza Dough

Food / Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Is it 4 o’clock or even 5 and you’re in the mood for homemade pizza but forgot to make the dough earlier? When this happens to me I either grudgingly find something else that’s quick and easy to make or end up ordering out. But the other day I found this Homemade Pizza “in less Than 30 minutes” recipe . I’ve made this twice and it’s turned out great everytime; it’s become a real dinner (and life) saver! One secret: I put all the ingredients into my trusty Zojirushi Mini Breadmaker  and let it mix and knead in there for 2 8-minute dough cycles but if you’re used to making dough with a hand mixer I’m sure this would work out well also.

*Update: One more thing: The dough makes enough for 2 pizzas so divide it into 2 balls balls before spreading it out. Then you can either bake 2 and eat now or save for later, or you can put one in the fridge or freezer for later.

I’ve experimented with different toppings. Above is the classic spaghetti (pizza) sauce with ground beef and cheese. The other day I used some leftover chicken marinara sauce with mozzarella cheese and didn’t make enough–my husband was very pleased and that made me very happy of course. Tonight I might season the beef mexican style and see how that turns out.

So next time you’re in the mood for pizza but think it’s too late to start, try this!
