Great recipe for making mini pizzas where the children can roll out the dough and bake it themselves. A very forgiving dough which works well every single time. Simple ingredients. No overnight resting required.
Yeast mixture
  • ¼ cup tepid water
  • 2 teaspoon Active dry yeast
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
Dry ingredients
  • 420 grams/3 cups All purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoon salt
Wet ingredients
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  1. In a big bowl add in the all purpose flour and salt. In a seperate bowl mix a tablespoon of olive oil , ¼ cup water and ¾ cup milk.
  2. Take a small bowl and add ¼ teaspoon of sugar and 2 teaspoon Active dry yeast. Add in ¼ cup tepid water. Mix well and leave it aside for 5 minutes so it becomes foamy.
  3. Combine all the ingredients together and form a dough. Once combined rest for 10 minutes. Knead well for 5 minutes until the dough becomes one soft ball.
  4. First Rise : Once kneading is done, shape the dough into a nice smooth ball and transfer the dough to a well oiled bowl and let the dough rise until doubled. Mine took two hours.
  5. Second Rise : Once the dough is doubled, transfer the dough to a work surface. punch the dough down, make a ball and let it rise again until doubled. Another 2 hours. It can be faster or slower depending on where you live.
  6. Third rise: Turn the dough to your work surface and cut the dough into 8 equal pieces. Flatten the dough and start crimping the dough to form a nice smooth ball. Lightly oil all the balls and let it rise for half hour before baking. If you are not going to use it right away, refrigerate for upto 6 hours. Let it come to room temperature before proceeding.
  7. Baking: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Flatten each ball to disks. Press it in shape as necessary with your fingers. Top it with tomato sauce and toppings of your choice and bake for 10-15 minutes.
