How to make pizza dough in 10 minutes using the mixer?

Ingredients

5 1/2 + 1/8 cups AP flour (please read note below if you want to measure correctly)

1 TBSP instant yeast

3 cup warm water (you will use 3/4 cup + 2 1/4 cups)

1 TBSP salt

1/2 tsp sugar

1/4 + 1/8 cup olive oil

Instructions:

In the bowl of stand mixer, combine 3/4 cup of warm water, yeast and salt. Let it stand for 1 min. (if you are using traditional let it stand for 5 minutes)

Add 2 1/4 cups warm water, 1/4 + 1/8 cup olive oil, 1/2 tsp sugar.

Attach the dough hook to the mixer and start on a low speed. (just for a few seconds)

Then add 3 cups of flour and mix until combined. (about 1 minute)

Your next step is to add the rest of the flour which is 2 1/2 +1/8 cups.

Keep mixing in a low speed for about 2 minutes and then gradually increase the speed to medium until a ball forms.

Then let the mixer kneed your pizza dough for about 6 minutes.

IMPORTANT: If the dough doesn’t release from the sides of the bowl, add 1 or 2 TBSP of flour.

IMPORTANT for YOU: Don’t judge me but for this pizza dough recipe I don’t measure the flour correctly. (blame my grandmother. She never did for any kind of the bread or pizza). If you measure correctly which means stir in the bag to lighten it, PLEASE use about 9 cups. (1141 grams). Again, don’t be afraid to play with the flour. Remember, the dough needs to be released from the sides of the bowl. (so keep adding until it happen).

Once the kneading is finished, shape the dough and coat with olive oil.

Cover with kitchen towel and let dough rise in warm area until double in volume, about 60 to 90 minutes.

Remove the kitchen towel from bowl and place your fist in the center of the dough to punch down.

Fold the dough back onto itself 5 to 6 times. (it doesn’t need to be perfect)

Then divide the dough into 6 to 9 equal portions or form the dough into individual balls.

Lightly coat each ball with olive oil.

Wrap each ball with plastic wrap and slide into a freezer bag.

You can freeze pizza dough for up to 3 months.

I will repeat again: Please read super important note below.

SUPER IMPORTANT NOTE: If you measure correctly which means stir in the bag to lighten it, PLEASE use about 9 cups. (1141 grams)

What do you need to freeze pizza dough?

  1. I have rapid-rise yeast, which is supposed to be added to the flour, since it doesn’t need to be proofed. How should I adjust your recipe?

    • Hi,
      My advice is always to follow the recipe.
      This recipe was tested and 100% works with instant yeast.
      I don’t know how it will work with rapid-rise yeast.
      If you try please let us know if it works.
      Thank you.

  2. Smart to have in the freezer ready to go! I love good meal prep ideas. 🙂 It also thaws really quickly which is handy if you forget to take the dough out of the freezer. Thanks!

    • Hi Sharon,

      And yes you can have quick breakfast, lunch or dinner using the pizza dough.
      This recipe is the gold as long as you have the KitchenAid mixer.
      I believe good meal prep is the most important step in order to save money and eat healthy.

    • Hi,

      Yes, it is thin. (from 1/6 I make 8 inch pizza).
      I made this recipe today and the weight for a whole dough is about 3 lbs.
      So, you can divide any way you wanted. No rules really.
      Follow the recipe but when it comes to “dividing” use your own judgment.
      If you have a very large family divide on 3 or 2.
      I hope this helps.
      Thank you for stopping by.

      Sorry your comment went to spam folder (don’t know how).

    • Hi Barbara,
      I have 3 KitchenAid Mixers. I love all of them. You can’t go wrong with KitchenAid mixer. You just can’t.
      The budget play important role when you are buying. How much money can you spend?
      Having bowl-lift is not the most important thing.(If you can afford go for it.)
      This is the mixer you should buy this link
      Also, check this link
      BTW, check Costco. Online store has great selection.
      I hope this helps.

      Thank you for stopping by.

  3. There are serious measurements wrong with this recipe. 1 tablespoon if salt? I also have added nearly 2.5 cups of extra flour! Too much water to flour and it is still sticking to the sides of my bowl! I am a baker so I know what I am doing here.

    • Hi Chris,

      Please check the special note.
      And yes, you are 100% right.
      If you measure correctly, you need to use 9 cups.

  4. I have made this recipe twice now and always need way more flour than what the recipe calls for. I end up needing 7+ cups

    • It takes about two hours on room temperature or you can leave in the fridge for 8 hours.
      Usually in the morning I transfer 1 dough from the freezer into the fridge and when I get home I can make pizza.
      I bake at 400 F for about 19 minutes.
