Helpful hints

  • To form a 12" pizza, turn a medium-sized bowl upside down and dust with flour.  Gently stretch dough evenly over outside of the bowl; turn and place on pizza pan.
  • Divide each dough ball in half to make four individual-sized pizzas.
  • If you have difficulty with dough rising, check the expiration date on your yeast. Be sure water is not too hot as this kills the yeast. Add a tablespoon of sugar in step #3 to 'feed' the yeast. Recipe calls for rapid-acting yeast. Regular baker's yeast may take 30 minutes or longer for dough to rise.

Creative suggestions for Easy Pizza Dough

  • Make bread sticks by dividing dough into 16 pieces and roll into cigar-shaped pieces.  Bake at 425º F until golden brown.
  • Make rolls by dividing dough into 8 rolls.  Let rise until doubled in size, brush with oil and bake at 425º F until golden brown.
  • Make cinnamon rolls by rolling each dough ball into a rectangular shape.  Spread with softened butter, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1/2-cup sugar or granulated sugar substitute.  Roll up and cut roll into 2" pieces.  Place cinnamon rolls in a buttered dish and bake at 400º F until golden brown.

I would also like to know if this can be premade and frozen for later use! Dietitian comment: I have not tried freezing the dough but my understanding is the yeast will survive and the dough should rise after it warm up.

There is no need to put oil in pizza dough . Four water and yeast is all with a little oil for bowl to rise

This recipe is excellent. I have used it for making pizza a few times. I just tried the cinnamon rolls today. They turned out excellent!

This was a very simple recipe and easy one to follow. Not a lot of work to do the kneading, so I didn't feel it necessary for a standup mixer, but I'm sure you could use one on slow speed to work thru it for a few minutes before using the dough. I only used it for the pizza and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be using this from now on!

I've also made cinnamon rolls with this recipe and it was a huge hit with my family. My husband is the one on dialysis, but my son thought these were the best cinnamon rolls he had ever had!

I make the cinnamon rolls all the time and people LOVE them. They are delicious with some cream cheese icing on them!

I have not tried it yet. Sounds simple to make. Should mention standup mixers,they help in kneeding.
