Making homemade pizza doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming. Most of the pizza dough recipes call for the dough to rise before shaping it. It can take 30-45 minutes for the dough to rise.
Which is fine if you think ahead and start it early enough. But if you don’t have the time to wait for the pizza dough to rise, this no rise pizza dough recipe is perfect.
Since we eat pizza or some form of pizza at least twice a month, I use this no rise pizza dough recipe all the time. In about 30 minutes I can make three thin crust pizzas from scratch for our family.
If you don’t need three pizzas you can divide the dough, use what you need and freeze the rest for a later meal. I’ve tried it a few times and it’s worked well each time, just be sure to take the dough out of the freezer to thaw well before you need it.

Tips for Making No Rise Pizza Dough
✳︎ Start with warm water to proof the yeast. Not hot though as that will kill the yeast.
✳︎ Add enough flour to make a nice dough that isn’t dry.
✳︎ Knead until smooth, usually this takes about 5 minutes and builds up the gluten needed for the structure of the dough.
✳︎ Divide and use for pizza, pizza pockets, stromboli, anything that calls for pizza dough.
