Who here also loves pizza?! When I became lactose intolerant I kinda wrote off the idea of indulging in pizza, and the thought of pizza without cheese was just sad… But then my eyes were open to the colorful world of different veggies. Now that I’ve become a little more adventurous with experimenting with dairy, I’ve learned I can handle a little bit of goat cheese and I love it on pizza! Seriously, go try it now on this ridiculously easy homemade pizza dough!
Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
Yields: 2 (14-inch) pizza crusts
3 1/2 to 4 cups bread flour, plus more for rolling
1 teaspoon sugar
1 envelope instant dry yeast
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 cups water, 110 degrees F
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 2 teaspoons for bowl
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine bread flour, sugar, yeast, and kosher salt.
2. As the mixer runs, add water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Beat until the dough forms into a solid ball. If the dough is too sticky, add additional flour 1 tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too dry, add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time.
3. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and gently knead into a smooth ball.
4. Grease a large bowl with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Add the dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and place in a warm place to double in size. This will take about an hour.
5. Once the dough has doubled in size, turn out onto a lightly flour work surface and divide it into two equal pieces.
6. Cover each piece of dough with plastic wrap. Let rest for 10 minutes.
7. Preheat oven to 475F. Remove doughs from plastic wrap and place each onto a separate lined/sprayed baking sheet.
8. Working with your hands, gently spread out dough working from the center out.
9. Top pizza and bake for 13-15 minutes.
