I have a wonderful recipe for dough cooked on the BBQ grill. It’s delicious and always a hit, but the dough takes a few hours to prepare with all of the rise time needed. I was thrilled to find a pizza dough recipe that doesn’t require any rise time. I was able to go from start to finished pizza in less than an hour.
2¼ 3¼ c. all-purpose flour
1 envelope of rapid dry yeast
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
2 TBSP olive oil
You will need an electric mixer. I used my KitchenAid stand mixer with the paddle beater to mix the dough and the dough hook to knead. You could also do the kneading by hand. Pre-heat oven to 425°
- In your mixer bowl, start with 1¼ cups of the flour. Mix in yeast and salt.
- Warm one cup of water in the microwave, use a digital thermometer to test the temperature.
- Add water and oil to the dry ingredients.
- Mix on low speed until combined, then on high for 3 minutes.
- Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
- Change the mixer attachment to the dough hook. Knead for 6-8 minutes.
- Allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes.
- Grease pizza pan
- Roll out the dough into a 20-22″ circle.
- Place on pan and roll under the edge to build up the edge.
- Prick the crust with a fork to prevent large bubbles from forming (from experience!)
- Bake for 12 minutes; until the dough is starting to set; may be slightly browned.
- Remove from oven and add sauces and toppings.
- Place back in oven for 10-15 minutes, until cheese is browned and completely melted in the center.
