I used to make pizza crust with the pre-packaged crust mix. It was a little too hard and dry. This version is very nice. The best part is that it is so quick to make. No time spent rising. I am so glad that AllRecipes posted this recipe. I plan on this being my go-to crust from now on.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.


Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker’s peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving. Makes one 12 inch pizza crust.
