Essential Pizza Dough

The processor does all the heavy kneading, so all that’s needed is a warm, cozy spot for some snooze n’ proof. Stretch it like a pro then add your favorite toppings. It’s great when the Essentials are easy.

    to sprinkle


  • 1Assemble the processor with the grey spindle and blue dough blade in the bowl. Add the flour, yeast, sugar and salt. With the processor on, slowly add the water and oil through the feed chute and process for 1 minute, or until the dough is elastic.
    Tip: Don’t overprocess, to avoid the dough overheating.
  • 2Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl. Stretch the edge over to the center to form a ball and turn to coat in the oil. Cover with plastic wrap. Allow to proof in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  • 3Turn the dough onto the countertop and divide into 2 equal portions, roll each portion into a ball. Lightly sprinkle a tray with semolina and place the balls on the tray, leaving space between them to rise. Cover with plastic wrap and proof in a warm place for 1 hour, or in the refrigerator overnight.
    Tip: If refrigerating overnight, allow the dough to come to room temperature, for about 1 hour before using.
  • 4When ready to use, stretch the dough into a 10-inch round. Margherita, pepperoni or capriccioso? Anchovies, garlic, olives or chili? While you may debate on toppings, don’t forget the other talents of this Essential Pizza Dough! Top with the good stuff then roll up for Stromboli or fold in half for calzone. Knead garlic and herbs into the dough then plait away for garlic knots…or just bake naked with a slick of olive oil for simple delicious flatbread.
