Easy Weeknight Pizza Dough

I love the ease of delivery pizza, but I definitely prefer homemade pizza. This 10-Minute Pizza Dough is one of my go-to weeknight pizza recipes. It is super easy to make and tastes great! There are only 6 simple ingredients in the dough and it is ready to bake in 10 minutes! The result is a quick and tasty pizza that is on the table in under 30 minutes.  We both absolutely loved it! This is a million times better than frozen pizza or delivery.

How to Make 10-Minute Pizza Dough

This dough is super easy to make. In a large bowl, combine yeast and warm water and stir until the yeast dissolves. Add all-purpose flour, salt, honey, and olive oil. Stir to combine. Let dough rest for 10 minutes. Press the dough into the desired shape. Top with pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings and bake.

  • One packet of yeast is 2¼ teaspoons of yeast.
  • You can shape the dough into any shape you prefer – circle, square, oblong.
  • This recipe will make one 14-inch pizza. You can cut the dough in half and make two personal pizzas if you prefer.
  • Feel free to double the recipe if you want to make two pizzas.
  • Here is our recipe for Homemade Pizza Saucehttps://www.plainchicken.com/easy-homemade-pizza-sauce/
  • Can pizza dough be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the dough before baking or immediately after baking. The dough can be frozen for up to three months and just needs to be thawed in the fridge overnight before you use it.

    1. I baked the dough on parchment paper. If you are pressing it into a pan, I would definitely grease it.

  1. I've been looking for a good pizza dough recipe I'll have to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Pizza dough is a tough one to get perfect just to your preferences.

    Pizza for the chicken queen? Shocker. I'm let down (ha ha, just kidding).

  3. I love pizza too…the obsession began when I was four years old and would go to Chuckie Cheese for birthday parties…and it has not abated! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. I'll have a slice of that. I don't know if I could eat pizza for every meal continuously but do like it for all meals. We always make extra so we can have leftovers for breakfast.
