How to make the best homemade pizza dough – This easy recipe uses yeast and all purpose flour to make a simple, fast, and healthy thick crust. You can use Instant Yeast or active dry yeast and this recipe has no baking powder. We use our KitchenAid mixer and the dough hook to form the dough. Includes instructions for how to cook the pizza.
We have tried a lot of pizza dough recipes.
For more than a year, we’ve eaten homemade pizza almost every week, usually on Sunday afternoon or evening. It’s become our tradition. As we’re lazing around, doing whatever it is we’ve decided to do, Joe makes a ball of pizza dough and then we all decide what to put on it.
At first, we used a bread machine pizza dough recipe that came from either MomAdvice.com or The Complete Tightwad Gazette book.
Unfortunately, we were never completely happy with that recipe.
Not long ago, Joe went searching for a new pizza crust recipe, and he found one on AllRecipes.com. He adjusted it, of course (because we never leave a recipe alone, ever).
Our crust comes out perfectly now. It is puffy and light and crispy on the outside while still soft on the inside. Really, it’s perfect.
This is my 1,000 post on Feels Like Home. Just thought I’d mention that since it’s sort of a big deal. I started blogging on July 30, 2007, just eight weeks after Grace was born. I wrote a lot of things that aren’t worth reading and a few things that might be. In February 2008, I rebranded the site, and the rest is… in the archives. I just thought I’d mention it, in case you haven’t been here since the beginning.
