Fast Homemade Pizza

Ladies and gentlemen, I tried to make a quick fast homemade pizza dough recipe for years and finally came to a good recipe about a year ago. You can make this dough in about hours, or longer if you desire, and the crust is great! The crust is thick, chewy, crispy, and full of flavor. Thanks to ArtisanBreadwithSteve for introducing me to this recipe and showing me just how easy and fast it is!

Ingredients for Dough

  • 13 oz warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 1/2 c bread flour
  • 2 tsp paprika for color and flavor
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 garlic clove

Toppings

  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 6-8 oz gouda and cheddar cheese (usually I use mozzarella)
  • 1/2 onion – carmelized
  • 1/2 c pineapple
  • whatever your heart desires
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • garlic clove from above

Recipe

For the dough you need to heat your bowl and water a little; I do it at the same time in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes.

Next add your salt, olive oil, and yeast to the water. Mix well, and add your flour and paprika. Now mix the flour and dough until all the flour is incorporated into the dough. Cover it with a lid or plastic wrap add let sit in the oven with only the light on for about 2 hours. (I made this recipe with active dry yeast, let it rise 4 hours, and it was perfectly fine!)

Once the dough has about doubled in size, it’s ready to spread onto a baking sheet and top with tomato paste, cheese, and the rest of your favorite things! If you use a little olive oil on your hands and the pan, it will make spreading the dough easier. Heat up the 1 tbsp butter with the clove of garlic in the microwave for about 20 seconds, and brush on the crust before placing in the oven.

Totally forgot to take a pic of the dough. So sorry!

Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the crust starts to turn golden brown. Heat up the 2 tbsp butter with the garlic clove from earlier some salt and pepper for about 30 seconds, and now you have your own garlic dipping sauce! Your delicious fast homemade pizza is ready to enjoy!
