This is my go-to Homemade Pizza Dough recipe. It is simple to make, and so delicious! I even gave making yeast dough from scratch and try this week <insert applause> LOL
I have had no real desire to make yeast dough from scratch. That is why I never have, before now. I was pleasantly surprised. It was nowhere near as hard as I had expected…..
I have had several people ask how to make dough without a bread machine, so I will do my best to explain. The original recipe is written using a bread machine, but I will show you the steps in a collage. Warning: this collage is actually sweet dough, NOT pizza dough, but it works the same exact way (just ignore the cup of milk in the picture). I will eventually update the collage with actual pizza dough pictures 🙂
In a microwave safe bowl, heat the water and honey to between 110 – 115 degrees.
Add the yeast, stir, and allow to sit for 5 – 10 minutes to allow the yeast to foam (proof).
Pour yeast into the bowl of a stand mixer.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix for 4 – 5 minutes, until fully incorporated.
Cover dough and allow to rise for 1 and a 1/2 hours, or until doubled. You can also place dough in an oiled bowl and allow to rise covered in a draft free location.
The plastic lid was steaming up from the warmth of the dough, so I decided to just cover it with a towel and let it rise in the mixer bowl.
So there you have it. My favorite Homemade Pizza Dough prepared two different ways. I still prefer making it in my bread machine, but at least now I know I have another option. Enjoy!
