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.

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.
