This easy homemade pizza dough recipe will have you creating your own pizzas in no time.
Pizza is a no fork zone. Anyone who uses a fork to eat a cheap slice of pizza is shameful. But feel free to add any toppings that you like. Think summertime – nice weather, maybe a pool party and friends. This is the perfect setting for pizza on the grill. Just make sure you keep drinking water while you grill. It might get a little hot over there.
This easy recipe is for a simple dough with a short rise time. Because it doesn’t have a long fermentation time it will have bready crust. It’s ideal for thin crust pizza paired with my 5 minute homemade pizza sauce.
Check your yeast! Yeast can expire, and if you buy a jar it’s best stored in the refrigerator at a cooler temperature.
Another issue may stem from the temperature of your water is too hot. If the yeast is added to a liquid that is over 120ºF (49ºC) then yeast will start to die. If it dies then it will not activate which will cause the dough not to rise.
Sticky dough that is hard to work with is too hydrated. This means the ratio of liquid to solid is off. The good thing about this issue is it can typically be fixed by kneading in a bit more flour.
Spinach Artichoke = white pizza + Spinach leaves + artichoke + Parmesan + crushed red pepper
Hawaiian = ham + diced pineapple + sliced jalapenos + cheddar cheese
Buffalo chicken = chicken thighs tossed in buffalo sauce, chopped + blue cheese + diced celery

Breakfast pizza = breakfast sausage + mushrooms + cheddar cheese + egg on top
