Food-Processor Pizza Dough

Food-Processor Pizza Dough

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 6 Makes two 12-inch rounds.
Mixed in a food processor, this dough comes together quickly. Be sure to check the expiration date on the yeast; if it is outdated, the dough will not rise properly.


  • 1 Tbs. active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (105° to 115°F)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil


In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the dough blade, combine the flour and salt and process with 3 or 4 pulses. With the motor running on the dough speed, slowly add the yeast mixture, allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. Continue processing until the dough forms a ball and cleans the sides of the bowl, about 1 minute, then process for 1 minute more.

Coat the inside of a large bowl with the olive oil and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let the dough rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1⁄2 hours. Divide the dough in half and roll out as directed in the pizza recipe.
