Easy 10 Minute Dough:

November 1, 2015

I love to cook but I hate being stuck in the kitchen all day. With three young kids I don't have the time or patience to wait for dough to rise overnight.  I had to find a quick recipe that didn't make me prep all day and then wait another half a day to be able to cook it, especially since my kids ask for pizza every other day...literally. After much trial and error, I finally was able to form this quick and easy recipe to make homemade bread for my husband and delicious pizzas for my boys.



Perks? I can freeze half the batch for another day and have my house smelling like an Italian fresh bread or pizza bakery in no time.

Be sure to give it a try and let me know what you think!

5 cups flour (divided)
2 warm cups water

2 tablespoon or 1 packet dry yeast
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp dry milk (or milk)
1 tbsp Salt
1 tsp baking powder (optional)
1/2 cup oil


beaten egg white or milk for brushing

-Mix yeast along with sugar and salt into warm water to allow it to activate. 

-While the yeast is forming add 2 cups of flour and baking powder to a mixing bowl.

-Once the dry ingredients are mixed, pour in the warm water yeast mixture.
-Now mix and let it sit for 10 minutes on your counter, covered. (It will be a runny batter, don't worry)
-After about 10 minutes you will notice bubbles in your batter, this ensures the yeast is working.

-Add the remaining 3 cups of flour, milk powder and 1/2 cup oil and give it a mix. 
-Add extra flour if needed while kneading to make a smooth dough.
-This dough can be made in the stand mixer. 

-At this point your dough is ready to use. 

-For an extra fluffy and soft dough, let the dough rest and rise covered for an hour. 

-For dinner rolls take it a step further and after the 1 hour of rise, knead and make dinner rolls. 

-Place your dough balls on a parchment lined baking dish and let it rest and rise for an additional 30 to 45 mins. 

-Stuff them with cheese or meat or leave them plain. 

-Brush with either a beaten egg white or milk, along with seeds or spices of choice.

-Bake your desired baked goods at 350'F. 


For 12 to 15 Dinner Rolls: 15 to 20 minutes. 

2 large Pizza Crust: 10 to 12 minutes.

15 Meat Pies: 12 minutes.
2 Garlic Bread Loaves: 20 to 25 minutes. 

These times are approximate dependent on your oven. My oven is electric and runs super hot and fast. 


Make this dough with my Spiced Bechamel Chicken Bread.

**To freeze: wrap your dough in plastic wrap then in a reusable sealed bag. Freeze for up to 3 months, thaw overnight in the fridge before using.



Roll it out and turn it into a delicious pizza.



Or my kids pizzas!



Extra dough left over? Turn them into Garlic Knots. 



Or a braided loaf like my husband's favorite.



Or my personal a savory meat pie, rose form. 

Any way you choose, it's sure to be delicious! :)
