No Rise Pizza Dough

Here is why you are going to LOVE this dough.. Its fast. Its easy. Only a few ingredients and turns out great EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. It’s a NO FAIL NO RISE Pizza dough. It’s fluffy and crispy all things a pizza crust should be.

WHAT MAKES A NO RISE PIZZA DOUGH?

There is a secret ingredient to this no rise pizza dough, that makes it fluffy and soft yet have a nice crispy crunch. What is it? Just a tad of shortening.

DO I HAVE TO USE SHORTENING?

I KNOW, I know, you might not be a fan of shortening. But really there are 3 recipes in my entire recipe book that really require shortening for the best results. There are substitutions for the shortening, HOWEVER shortening is used for a specific reason in baking especially. Shortening in baking makes the dough the fluffy and crispy, this helps so you dont have to wait while the dough rises. If you substitute it for butter or oil the dough will be more flat and dense. These are not the most wanted qualities you want, but you can try substituting it with butter.

WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE NO RISE PIZZA DOUGH

seriously guys only a few ingredients!

  • flour
  • salt
  • shortening
  • sugar
  • yeast
  • hot water

HOW TO MAKE NO RISE PIZZA DOUGH

Start by adding all your dry ingredients to your stand mixer. You will not want to use ALL the flour right at first. Start with 1.5 cups of flour.

  • Flour
  • salt and sugar
  • shortening
  • yeast in last

  • Mix your dry ingredients together and while the mixer is mixing slowly add in your hot water.
  • Let your dough kneed for about a minute
  • You will need to add in a little more flour, about .5 cup-1 cup.

HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH FLOUR TO ADD

funny thing about bread making is that your altitude and humidity can effect the dough. I’ve never added more than 2.5 cups in my different regions Ive lived. HOW YOU WILL KNOW when you have added enough flour is the dough will pull away from the side but still be very sticky. Can you see the difference in picture 2 and 4 below?

CAN I LET IT RISE IF I HAVE TIME?

YES! I usually will let my dough sit in the bowl while I pull out my ingredients for toppings, get a few other things going. Because it has warm water the dough is warm and rises fast. But if you are in a rush, by all means roll this puppy out!

HOW TO ROLL OUT PIZZA DOUGH

Unless your trained in the art of pizza pie throwing i recommend just rolling out the dough on your counter. Form into a ball.

CAN I MAKE SMALLER PIZZAS WITH THIS NO RISE PIZZA DOUGH?

YES! At this point this is when you would want to divide your dough into the amount of pizzas you want. PROTIP: A little goes a long way! This batch will make 1 large pizza, or fill an entire jelly roll pan. you can easily make about 4-6 small pizzas.

  1. dust a surface with flour
  2. roll dough out into a circle, or what ever shape your pizza pan is. Roll it about 2 inches larger than your pan.
  3. you can double check its size by placing the pan on top of you dough.
  4. grease, or use parchment paper and place dough on pan. Then roll up your ends to crust.

WHEN DO I ADD TOPPINGS?

Now! you will bake your dough and toppings all together. Add your sauce first, then shredded mozzarella. Lastly add all additional toppings- like meats and veggies.

WHAT TOPPINGS DO I ADD?

UMMM, your favorite!! here are some of my favorite combos

  • cheese, fresh mozzarella, pesto and slice tomatoes (margherita pizza)
  • alfredo sauce, grilled chicken, artichokes and spinach
  • hawaiian style- canadian bacon + pinapple
  • BBQ chicken- shredded chicken, cheese, bbq sauce, pineapple

BAKING NO RISE PIZZA DOUGH

Your pizza will bake for about 15-20 minutes. This can vary by the size, thickness of your dough. When the edges are nice and golden brown you will know its done.

SERVE IMMEDIATELY

You will want to serve while the cheese is nice and melty.

HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVERS?

Place any leftover in an air tight bag or container. It’ll save for about 2 weeks.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO REHEAT PIZZA?

If you have an airfryer I have found it reheats pizza AMAZINGLY. We put it on a shelf and it heats up in minutes. If you dont, my trick to reheating pizza is to place in a hot skillet. Let the pizza cook for about 1 minutes, then add 2-4 TBS of water cover with a lid. The steam will melt the cheese while the skillet keeps the crust crispy.
