Homemade pizza is a family favorite. Pizza dough that is easy to make-ahead and keep ready to bake in the freezer makes life simple. It is great for pizza night or pizza parties with your friends. Here’s a great recipe for crust that can be made in just a few minutes. It will make 6 9-inch. If you don’t freeze it, it is great for baking right away. If you do freeze it, it is also great for baking right away and will raise in the oven like the pre-made pizzas that are loaded with chemicals in the freezer section of the grocery store. Since you made the dough, and it’s made with Panhandle Milling Bread Flour, you know it is wholesome. It’s so fun to make this recipe with your kids as well! This is a great way to learn kitchen math and science.
Gather your tools:
When measuring flour either lightly scoop it into the measuring cup and level off with a knife, or weigh it with a kitchen scale.
When measuring with a scale, place the bowl on the scale, set the scale back to zero (called “zero-out”) to only weigh the flour, not the bowl.
Keep the water cool, almost ice cold when making this dough. It will keep the yeast and baking powder from activating so that they will rise in the oven when you need it to do so.
6 cups (30 oz) Panhandle Milling Bread flour
2 1/4 cups (18 oz) water (cold)
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. Red Star Active Dry Yeast
1 Tbsp. salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
