Easy Tasty Homemade Pizza Dough
I’m so excited to finally share my Pizza dough recipe with the world. It’s kind of silly because out of all of the fun things I make pizzas dough is really kind boring. BUT, this pizza dough is fun, tasty, and super easy to make at home. Any one who knows me, knows how much I love making home made Pizza. My kids love making this dough as well and honestly is difficult to ruin. This recipe can be made in a stand mixer or by hand. Though it is a little messy and will take you tad bit longer by hand its totally doable. You can use a bench soft scraper or a rubber spatula to make things a little easier, an extra hand would be helpful as well.
*Before you get started I recommend you gather all of your ingredients and make sure you have them on hand. If you don’t have Bread Flour you can use All Purpose Flour instead. Bread flour gives you a crispier pizza crust while all purpose flour gives you a chewier pizza crust.
*If you don’t have honey, agave or a liquid sweetener, you can use granulated sugar instead. Just add it to your dry ingredients instead of adding it to the liquid ingredients.
*Parmesan cheese and dry Italian seasoning are optional.
*Instant Dry Yeast, Rapid Rise Dry Yeast or Active Dry Yeast are all ok to use. I don’t recommend the bread machine yeast.
This dough is Vegan if you substitute the honey for granulated sugar. You can also use Gluten Free flour for a gluten free pizza crust.
