Are you looking for an easy to make pizza dough that is oil-free and does not take a long time to make? Then you will want to try this Homemade Pizza dough. Not only is it oil-free, but it is dairy-free and can be made in under 15 minutes.
I found that making the dough from scratch can be challenging unless you have the right ingredients and measurements. It took me a while, but I finally found one that worked. I think the key was to make sure that you use the right yeast and use warm up water on the stove that is between 120° F and 130° F.
1 ¾ cups to 2 cups of whole wheat flour. I have also used whole wheat all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp active dry yeast
¼ tsp pure cane sugar
¼ tsp sea salt
1 cup of water
- In a medium size bowl add in flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. On the stovetop in a small pan, heat up 1 cup of warm water until it reaches 120°F to 130° F. Using a thermometer to check the temperature. If you get the water too warm, you can let it sit for a few minutes until it reaches the desired temperature.
- Add the warm water in with the flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and stir until it forms a ball.
- On parchment paper, lightly flour the surface and knead the dough until the dough is smooth. Cover and let sit for about 10-15 minutes.
- Once the dough has sat for about 10-15 minutes, roll the dough into a 10-12 inch circle using a rolling pin. You can add about a tsp of plant milk to the top and place on a baking sheet in the oven for 400°F for about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and add your favorite toppings and then place back in the oven for about an additional 8 minutes or until golden brown.
