This is a great recipe when you don't want to wait for the dough to rise. You just mix it and allow it to rest for 5 minutes and then it's ready to go! It yields a soft, chewy crust.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a pizza pan.

  • Place warm water in a bowl; add yeast and sugar. Mix and let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  • Add flour, oil, and salt to the yeast mixture; beat until smooth. You can do this by hand or use a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook to make it easier. Let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a 12-inch circle. Transfer to the prepared pizza pan.

  • Spread crust with sauce and toppings of your choice.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use all-purpose flour, but the bread flour makes a superior crust.

If you have a pizza stone, dust it with cornmeal and use it instead of a greased pizza pan.
