Quick Pizza Dough
This quick pizza dough recipes is great for those who like homemade pizza but don't want to spend the time making a traditional pizza dough. Fleischmann's® Rapid Rise Yeast speeds up the process and allows you to have homemade pizza dough in no time. I love this recipe because you can have that homemade taste without having to wait for the dough to rise.
Yield: Makes 2 - 12” pizzas
Total Time: 15 minutes
Combine 2 cups of the flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the warm water and olive oil. Add the additional flour as needed until you have soft dough.
Turn out the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth and elastic – usually about 5 minutes, adding more flour as necessary. Cover the dough with a cloth on the floured surface and let rest for 10 minutes.
Your dough is now ready to use in your favorite pizza recipe.
Experiment with different flavor variations and come up with some of your own.

Garlic and Herb Pizza Dough:Use the recipe above with the addition of 1 garlic clove minced, or 1 teaspoon garlic power, and 1 teaspoon of dried Italian seasoning to the flour mixture.
