When I have a bit of extra time, usually on weekends, and a little forethought, I whip up a batch of homemade pizza dough. This super simple recipe by Chloe Coscarelli, makes a nice, smooth, fluffy dough that bakes up almost like a pan pizza crust. I always mix a double batch, so I have dough left over for Cinnamon Rolls.
You can play with the flour ratios. I used half whole wheat and half white, to make it a little healthier. You just need to get started about 2 hours before you plan to eat the pizza.
Easy Pizza Dough

- 1 package Active dry yeast
- 1 cup Water
- 2 ½ cups All-purpose flour, or 1/2 white, 1/2 whole wheat
- 1 tbsp. Olive oil
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1 tbsp. Maple Syrup
1. Blend ingredients with dough hook until smooth. Placed dough in well-oiled bowl and rotate
2. Place in warm place until doubled (1-1 1/2 hours). Place dough on lightly floured surface and shape into a disk.
3. Knead for 5 minutes, using the steering wheel technique. Use immediately or cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze.
Hey Flavorista, I’m doing pizza dough this week too. I make mine in a food processor. What kind of topping did you use on this one?
Thanks for asking! Basil-walnut pesto, tofu ricotta, steamed chard, chopped and tossed with pesto, mushrooms, red onion, cherry tomatoes and green olives 🙂
MMMMMMMMMM! That vegan pizza looks pretty appetizing too! 🙂 Yummy!
I would add vegan chorizo slices on it!!
What would a vegan chorizo consist of?!
Some stores such as Whole Foods carry vegan chorizo or a smoked sausage with a spicy chorizo flavor. Field Roast is a popular vegan brand. Ives brand also has a vegan chorizo crumble. These products are usually made with a concentrated vegetable or soy protein, grains and spices. There are some recipes out there as well. Brian Patton, the author of “The Sexy Vegan” has several good vegan sausage recipes as does Isa Chandra Moskowitz, of Post Punk Kitchen (ppk.com).

Looks delicious. Love that you used both whole and all purpose flours.
I actually have always preferred 100 % whole wheat flour for everything, but it is an acquired taste and Steve prefers half n half
;-). It does make for a lighter product I have to agree.
Slowly, I’ve been making bread with less and less of the white flour, and husband is getting used to it. It is more dense, but more chewy and better flavor.
Absolutely better texture and flavor 🙂
