No-Knead Pizza Dough Recipe

When your end result is a flat disc, you can get away with stirring and then ignoring your dough. No need to knead—this dough is as easy as it gets.

No-Knead Pizza Dough 

Makes: 2 pizza crusts, each about 1 lb.

Prep time: 10 min., plus rising time

  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 1 packet active yeast
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 cups unbleached flour

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a large spoon or spatula. Dough will be wetter than bread dough.

2. Cover the bowl with lightly oiled plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter for about an hour. Then put the dough in the refrigerator. It will keep for several days or you can use it immediately.

3. For easiest rolling, take the dough out of the refrigerator an hour or so before you’re ready to begin and divide it into two balls. Press into round discs and cover with plastic wrap. The dough will be much easier to stretch into a thin crust.
