Easy Pizza Dough
- Why wait for delivery or eat frozen? Homemade pizzas are easy to make, they can be customized to be free of allergens, and they are as much fun to make as they are to eat!
- Bisquick baking mix is a must-have in every kitchen! Use it for everything from waffles to biscuits to pizza crusts. Even kids can mix and roll out a pizza crust on their own.
- Make a pizza bar and set out various bowls of sauces, meats (cooked), veggies, and cheeses and let everyone create their own signature pizza pie! Make an easy pizza pocket by spreading sauce, toppings, and cheese on one side of unbaked pizza dough and then fold over the plain end. Crimp the half-circle edges together and bake as directed.
2 Ingredient Recipe
BISQUICK – Create a thin or thick-crust style pizza that’s ready for topping, baking, and enjoying, all without leaving home with simple Bisquick. It’s safe to use a store brand of premixed dough too, or use this easy Copycat Bisquick Recipe.
WATER – Water is called for, but any liquid will work. Feel free to use milk or dairy-free milk. Just warm it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds to a minute, since the recipe calls for hot water.
TOPPINGS – Anything goes on a pizza! But here’s a short list of favorites!
- Sauce: Tomato, marinara, alfredo, or a quick swipe of olive oil are all excellent bases for toppings, or to bake on their own!
- Meat: Pepperoni, sausage, shredded chicken or pork, and seasoned ground beef are all easy meat ideas for pizza!
- Vegetables: Diced or sliced tomatoes, spinach, onions, mushrooms, and black olives are popular choices. But bell peppers sliced zucchini, yellow squash, kale or arugula are healthy additions, as well. And don’t forget pineapple!
- Cheese: Cheese melts everything together and adds an array of bright and tangy flavors. Everything from Asiago to Jarlsberg will melt perfectly on homemade pizza!
How to Make Bisquick Pizza Dough
When it’s time to cook the crusts, place disks on a baking pan or pizza stone, add sauce and toppings, and then bake. Here’s how to mix the dough:
- Mix Bisquick with hot water (as per the recipe below) until combined. Use a wooden spoon or a mixer with a dough hook.
- Cover with a clean towel and allow it to rest and rise for just 10 minutes.
- Roll into a large circle or portion out and let everyone make their own pizza.
Best Pizza Tips
- The dough might be ‘shaggy’ or a little sticky during the rising stage. This is okay. Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling surface to keep the dough from sticking, but avoid adding too much flour during mixing or shaping so it doesn’t dry out the crust while it bakes.
- Make fresh dough balls in advance and keep them in the refrigerator until they are ready to use. Simply let them come to room temperature before rolling and shaping into disks.
- Extra dough can be made into small Pizza Dough Breadsticks. Freeze portioned dough balls in plastic wrap for up to 8 weeks. Thaw and when they come to room temperature, use as directed.
