Five Minute Pizza Dough

Posted on: May 2, 2011

The title is a bit misleading since you’ll still need at least two hours for the dough to rise, but I thought that was a small price to pay for a dough that came together in a snap. I used my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment, but you could also use a wooden spoon. The original recipe makes four one pound loaves of bread, but it was easy to cut in half and get two individual pizza (with half left to take for lunch).

2 3/4 cups lukewarm water
1 1/2 tablespoon granulated yeast (2 packets)
1 1/2 tablespoons Kosher salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

Mix the yeast, salt, sugar, and olive oil with the water. Mix in the flour without kneading.

Transfer dough to large (five quart) bowl or lidded food container (I just used the bowl I had mixed it in). Cover (not airtight), and allow to rest at room temperature until dough rises and collapses (or flattens on top), approximately 2 hours.

The dough can be used immediately after the initial rise or refrigerated in a lidded (not airtight) container for 12 days. It is easier to work with when cold.
