30 minute Pizza Dough

I don’t remember where I got this recipe or I would give them the credit because it is so good and sooo easy!

1 cup warm water
1 packet of yeast ( or 2 1/4 teaspoons)
Add the yeast to the water and let it sit for 5 minutes
then add
3 tablespoons butter flavored Crisco
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
3-4 cups flour
mix together well and let rise for 15 minutes – then it is ready!
Bake at 400 degrees until the crust is golden brown. The amount of time will depend on the size and thickness.

For years and years I hand mixed this. I just got my Bosch mixer for Christmas last year and love it. Either way it works great! It also makes wonderful bread sticks.

We make home made pizza about once a week around here. My boys love pizza night because they get to make their own.

And watch it bake.

The Mr. and I don’t see eye to eye on the toppings.

Are you hungry yet???

  1. […] 30-minute pizza dough by Not Just a Housewife sounds so easy. This might be a quick dough when you don’t have a couple of hours to wait for a decent homemade pizza crust and hungry hordes await. However, I would have to try it with modifications like using a healthier flour, though I am aware that this might change the timings a bit. […]
