Quick Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe
This recipe takes about an hour to make and let rise, bakes like a charm, and will yield about three thin crust pizzas, or two regular pizzas with a bit left over for some crazy bread. Every time I make it I’m ashamed I thought it would be faster to do takeout. By the time we order, wait 20 minutes, drive there and back, we’re at about the same time it takes to pull together this quick homemade pizza dough recipe.

Homemade Pizza Dough Topping Ideas:
We love the classic mozzarella cheese and pepperoni as much as anyone, but we’ve found we have a lot more fun and variety with some of the following:
- White sauce, pesto sauce, garlic sauce, ranch, or bbq sauce
- Sweet toppings like fig butter (we love Trader Joe’s), pears, honey drizzle, etc.
- Meat mix-ups like prosciutto, ham, sausage, cut up meatballs, or bacon
- Fresh herbs and veggies of any variety. Basil leaves are always a win, but we’ve tried a lot of creative options and loved them all

Can You Freeze Homemade Pizza Dough?
With the recipe, you absolutely can, and it’s one of our favorite hacks! With our little family, one recipe makes enough to freeze another pizza for another night. But sometimes when we’re feeling ambitious we freeze homemade pizza dough in larger batches.
To use again just take out of the freezer a few hours before you plan to use the dough. It defrosts quickly, and it will start to rise again once it does. Once it’s defrosted you can roll out the dough and make it as directed above. It’s the easiest homemade pizza hack to save us even more time!
