Pizza Dough Prestissimo


From EatingWell:  September/October 1995

Use this quick dough for one large pizza or four calzones.

1 pound dough, enough for 1 large pizza (8 servings) | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes



  1. Combine flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a food processor and pulse to mix.
  2. Heat water and oil in a small saucepan or the microwave to between 125 and 130°F. With the processor on, gradually pour the hot liquid through the feed tube. Process until the dough forms a ball. Then process for 1 minute to knead. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes. Whole-Wheat Variation: Substitute 1 1/2 cups all-purpose white flour and 1/3 cup whole-wheat flour for the flour in the above recipe. Proceed in the same manner.
