This is my family's favorite homemade pizza dough recipe and we use it pretty often. This is an easy recipe that you can make using your Instant Pot. We now like pizza more as we can add any topping of our choice right at home.
Add sugar in warm water and mix properly. Then add Active Yeast and let it sit for 5 minutes (or as per instructions) until it turns foamy & bubbly.
Stand Mixer: Add all the dry ingredients in the stand mixer attached bowl. Transfer the yeast mixture and oil into the dry ingredients and start at low speed. Keep kneading at medium speed until the dough is formed (around 5-6 minutes).
Without Stand Mixer: In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients and then transfer the yeast mixture and oil. Keep kneading with your hands or a spatula until properly combined and it forms like a dough.
Now take the dough and flatten a little bit in your hands and stretch all the sides and wrap them together at the center like you're wrapping a gift.
Raising the Dough:
Instant Pot: First spray oil all over the instant pot and then insert the prepared dough in the pot. Cover the pot with the glass lid and press the Yogurt setting and set the timer for 1 hour. After 1 hour, the dough should have doubled in size.
Non-Instant Pot: Transfer prepared dough in a large bowl and cover with the lid. Leave it to rest for 2-3 hours. Keep checking the dough. Once it has doubled, you can remove it from the bowl.
Rolling the Dough:
Remove the dough from the pot and knead one more time using your hands. Then cut the dough in equal proportions, the dough will yield 3-4 pizza rolls.
Roll one part of the dough and shape it like a ball. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on the dough and keep rolling using a rolling pin until it forms like a pizza base.
Pierce the pizza base a couple of times using a knife or a fork.
Baking the Dough:
Pre-heat oven at 425°F for 15-20 minutes. Place the pizza base in the baking tray. Once the oven is pre-heated, transfer the baking tray in the oven and bake for 5-6 minutes.
Once the pizza base is baked, you can then make the pizza by adding pizza sauce, cheese, and your favorite topping and bake for another 10-15 minutes at 425°F. °
BAKING THE DOUGH:If you're not gonna make the pizza right away, bake the dough first and store it. And later bake it again after adding toppings.Or bake it all together after adding topping on the pizza at 425°F for 15-20 minutes. STORAGEYou can store the dough in the refrigerator for 24 hours. The refrigerated dough rolls pretty nicely and makes great pizza.You can also store the dough in the freezer and use when needed.But first, defrost it for a couple of hours till it comes to room temperature.If you liked the recipe, Please RATEby clicking the stars or Leave a FEEDBACK below!
