You know that pizza dough that is the only pizza dough that I’ll make because I love it so much?
I kind of cheated on it.
Which isn’t it’s fault, because it’s still my ultimate favorite pizza dough. Here’s the only problem with it. Sometimes you want pizza right now and in those cases a dough that takes 18 hours to rise isn’t the answer. As much as I love planning ahead, I also have a crush on spontaneity and I’ve been seeking a quick solution that doesn’t start with “D” and end with “elissio”.
I’ve found a winner.
This dough is insanely quick and easy to make and I gotta tell you, we thought it was great. It’s thick, fluffy and fabulous. I don’t have much else to tell you about it, except that you should make it happen in your kitchen next pizza night. It’s darn good.
No Rise Pizza Crust
Makes 1 cookie sheet sized pizza
- 2 cups warm water
- 2 tbsp. olive oil + more for brushing
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 4 1/2 tsp. instant or rapid rise yeast (2 packets)
- 5 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp. sea salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment and brush with olive oil. Set aside.
Put water, oil and sugar in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let it proof for 5 minutes until foamy. Stir the flour, parmesan and salt together in the bowl of your stand mixer. Add the proofed yeast mixture and mix until combined. Knead the dough a few times and roll it out onto the prepared cookie sheet.
Top dough with desired toppings and bake for 15-20 minutes.
