No Knead Pizza Dough

No Knead Pizza Dough – Make homemade pizza at home with this super easy homemade pizza dough!

Everyone loves pizza night!  And getting to make your own pizza at home is always a fun idea. I am pretty sure my guys would eat pizza every night if I let them. Or at least multiple times a week. 

This Roasted Garlic White Chicken Pizza is one of my favorites. It is not your traditional pizza, it has a white sauce that is absolutely amazing with the roasted garlic.  Plus it is a little bit better for you, because it isn’t super cheesy and is topped with chicken. 

This is a homemade pizza dough with yeast, but it is not scary or hard to make. As long as you follow the directions and make sure your water is the right temperature this is such an easy pizza dough recipe that you can make in just minutes!  Pizza night just got better.  And it is great for all sorts of pizzas too. This Bacon, Ranch, Chicken Pizza is one of my guys favorites. 

What You’ll Need

  • All Purpose Flour
  • Salt
  • Olive Oil
  • Warm Water
  • Sugar
  • Active Dry Yeast

How to make Pizza Dough

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the FULL PRINTABLE recipe card.

  1. Start by mixing warm water with the sugar and yeast and letting it sit for about 5 minutes. You want to make sure you are using fresh yeast that has not expired yet.  It is best to keep yeast in the fridge, it will last longer this way.  As the water, sugar and yeast mix together it will start to “bloom” or get nice and foamy. This yeast feeds off the sugar, so don’t leave it out.
  2. In a separate bowl mix together your flour and salt. I like to add Italian seasoning when I am making an Italian style pizza, just to give it a little more flavor.  But this is definitely optional.
  3. Once the yeast is nice and foamy, add it and the olive oil to the flour and mix until your dough comes together. 
  4. Cover and let rest for about 20 minutes. This isn’t like a bread dough that you want to double in size, you just want it to rise slightly and gluten relax so that you can roll into a thin crust. 
  5. After 20 minutes, using well floured hands you can remove the dough and divide into 2 balls of dough. Then it is ready to use in whatever pizza recipe you are making!

Recipe Tips

  • Make sure your yeast is fresh and not expired. It is best stored in the fridge, it lasts longer this way. Just check the date before you start. If it is expired, you do want to throw it away, it will not rise or work like you want it to.
  • Don’t skip the sugar in the recipe. Sugar is one of the main things that yeast feeds off of, and allows it to grow. So it is really important in bread recipes to use it.
  • Be careful of your water temperature. Too hot and it will kill the yeast, too cold and the yeast won’t react. So use a thermometer and check the temperature to get what is called for in the recipe.
  • When it is time to bake, preheat your oven to 450º F. Grease a baking sheet and sprinkle cornmeal on it so the dough doesn’t get soggy. Roll the dough, prick it well with a fork and then I like to bake for 3-4 minutes, just to get it started before I top with my toppings. This way you know the crust is getting cooked all the way, and I think it gets crispier.
