Quick Homemade Pizza Crust

by GettingFreedom on April 28, 2009

Nothing beats homemade pizza. Especially our new favorite, Buffalo Chicken Pizza. One of the things that makes a great homemade pizza is homemade pizza dough.

I came across this recipe in the cookbook that came with my now dead breadmaker. I’ve easily converted the recipe over to work in my Kitchenaid. I have also been able to substitute whole wheat flour in for some of the white, with no changes other than added nutrition and better taste!

Quick Homemade Pizza Crust

Yield: Yields (1) 16" Crust or (2) 12" crusts.

Quick Homemade Pizza Crust


  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbs Warm Water
  • 2 ½ tsp yeast
  • 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 3 1/2 cups flour (again you can sub in some whole wheat)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. In your mixing bowl add the yeast then the warm water, salt and sugar.
  2. Let sit until bubbly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Mix on low until incorporated.
  5. Once incorporated mix on speed #2 for about 2 minutes. Your dough should spring back when touched. If it's sticky, just add in additional flour.
  6. Once mixed up, let sit for 5 additional minutes.
  7. Place on greased pizza pans (or cookie sheets) spreading out with your fingers.
  8. Add your favorite toppings and bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes.


** Our favorite crust is made with about ½ whole wheat flour, ½ all purpose with 2 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, 1 tsp of basil, and 1 tsp of Oregano. You can add the seasonings in when you add in the flour and other ingredients.
