easy peasy pizza crust

I love carbs. Therefore, I love pizza.
However, I hate waiting for pizza dough to rise and then having to knead it a million times and then let it rise again...yada, yada, yada.

Behold, my friends, the easiest pizza crust of all time!
I found this recipe online {by searching for "easy pizza crust"...obviously} and have put my own little spin on it.
It's changed my life.


2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1/4 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup hot water
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Garlic salt and parmesan cheese to taste

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Dissolve yeast and sugar in hot water and let sit for 8 minutes
Meanwhile mix flour and salt.
Pour yeast mixture over flour mixture and mix well with a heavy spoon.
Turn onto floured your pan or pizza stone, knead a few times and spread into a 12-14" circle
Drizzle dough with 1-2 T olive oil and use your fingers to evenly spread across.
Sprinkle with desired amount of garlic salt and parmesan cheese, making sure to get the edges covered well so you have a delicious garlic-bready crust
Put in the oven for 7 minutes. (If you like your crust super crispy, leave in for an additional minute or two)
Pull out of the oven and cover with sauce and desired toppings.
Place the pizza back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes, until cheese is melted and the crust is golden.



  1. I LOVE homemade pizza! This looks FABULOUS.

  2. I do feel the same about the long cooking process of pizza dough. And because of that, I found a way to occupy the time of waiting for the pizza dough to rise. I always prepare the dough before going to the next course of meal, so that while waiting for the dough, my time is not wasted as I prepare the other meal. I did not try searching for easy pizza crust, but I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog. Reading your blog helps your readers cook pizza a lot easier and faster than usual. ->Fresh & Healthy Brands
