Best Ever Pizza Dough

Now you can end your relationship with the Pizza Delivery Guy, you can make it at home!

Best Ever Pizza Dough

1 can or bottle of Beer (I usually use some Sleeman's Honey Brown Lager - something with lots of flavour. If you don't want to use beer, just use water).
1 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 1/2 tsp Salt
4 1/2 cups Flour
2 tsp Yeast
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Italian Seasoning

Put all the ingredients into a bread machine. Use the dough setting and press start. If using a stand mixer, use a dough hook and knead until the dough is soft. Allow to rise for 1 hour.

Once dough is ready, divide it. Divide in 1/2 for a thick crust and in 1/3 for a thin crust.

Flatten dough ball and spread dough until it is the size of the pan. Add sauce, desired toppings and cheese.

Bake at 350F for 17-20 minutes (depending on desired crispiness of crust).

The dough can be frozen divided in a small freezer bag or freeze unbaked pizza in plastic wrap with all the toppings for a quick meal. Also an easy Big Cook meal.

My little bitty Bug ate 3 pieces tonight (even the crust)..I can't even eat that much!

Delicious home-made pizza.

  1. The beer must give the dough extra lightness. I must try this as well. I can just see little Bug eating all that
