I was recently visiting my sister and three nephews. We spent all day at a really awesome science museum, so by the time we got home it was almost time for dinner. I threw out a couple suggestions of what we could do, turned around, and my sister was already half way through whipping up a homemade pizza dough! Color me impressed.
It was so quick and simple, and of course all the kids were thrilled with pizza for dinner, that I thought I should make up my own recipe for homemade pizza dough STAT! As soon as we got home, that’s what I did.
I totally stole the idea to put spinach in it from my sister.
The dough needs to rise for a couple hours, but it’s so simple to make that you could do a batch whenever you have the time and then put some in the fridge for later that week and freeze the rest for another time.
This pizza dough recipe makes enough for six individual 10 inch pizzas, and it’s a cinch to freeze and thaw as needed. I have some in the freezer right now! See the notes at the end of the recipe for directions on how to freeze and thaw.
Did you know that pizza dough is pretty much always vegan? Yeah! There are only four ingredients in a basic pizza dough – water, flour, salt and yeast. Sometimes there is oil and/or sugar. This has one extra ingredient with the spinach, but since you blend it up with the water and add them as one, it’s still just as easy!
The crust comes out thin and crispy but still chewy on the inside, just like it should be!
Real talk – if you are serious about really good homemade pizza, then you absolutely need to invest in a pizza stone. They are absolutely no harder to use than whatever you’re making your pizzas on now, and they make your pizza 1000% better! Up until now I had been making huge pizzas on baking sheets, but I just got a pizza stone and I’m in love. Thin, crispy, bubbly, chewy perfection. PLUS, they are very affordable. I wouldn’t even consider it a splurge.
