Use a food processor to make pizza dough. It’s pretty easy to pull off and you get great results!

First, heat up a kettle of filtered water. Once steaming, take off burner.

Pour heated water into measuring cup. Stick a temperature probe in, wait until it comes down to 105 degrees F.

While the water is heating up, mix together the yeast, sugar, and olive oil in a small bowl.


Once the water is 105 degrees F, combine the yeast mixture into the measuring cup with water. Mix thoroughly.

Put flour, salt, garlic & onion powder into food processor. Pulse a couple times to mix.

Then, with the machine running, pour in the yeast mixture slowly. Process until the dough forms a ball. It shouldn’t be sticking to the outsides of the mixer.

Remove dough from processor and knead on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes until dough is smooth & elastic.

Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl. Flip dough around in bowl to cover with oil.

Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm area for 2-4 hours to rise (doubling its size).

Take dough and divide into 2 – 4 balls, depending on how big you want your pizzas.

Knead each ball by pulling down both sides of the ball, and tucking under the bottom. Do this 5 times each.

Then on a smooth, unfloured surface, roll the ball around under your palm until it feels smooth. 2 minutes.

Place on a tray with lightly oiled plastic wrap or a slightly damp cloth on top. Let rise for another 45 minutes.

You can prepare the dough to make pizza, stromboli, calzones, etc. or you can cover in plastic wrap to refrigerate for up to 2 days.
