No fuss five minute pizza dough just requires a food processor to make excellent crispy crusted dough, with a soft center! Perfect for family pizza night!


  • 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/22/3 cup Cold Water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp King Arthur Flour Pizza Dough Flavor (optional*)
    • Or Make Your Own!
      • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
      • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
      • 1 1/2 Tbsp Powdered Parmesan Cheese


  1. In a large food processor, with the blade attachment, add in the flour, salt, and baking powder, and pizza seasonings. Close the lid and pulse to combine five times.
  2. Open the lid and add in the olive oil and the water. Start with 1/2 cup water. Close the lid and turn on the food processor. When the dough begins to form a ball in the food processor stop and check. If the dough doesn’t look like it is coming together completely, add in 1-2 Tbsp of water and restart until the dough finally comes together.
  3. Remove from the food processor, divide into 2. Use immediately or wrap tightly and freeze.
  4. If you are making a pizza immediately, now is a good time to gather your ingredients and turn on your oven. This will give the dough a few minutes to rest, and make it easier to roll out. The thinner you roll out your dough, the crispier the crust.
  5. For best results – use a cast iron skillet or a pizza stone. Top pizza and bake in a 450 degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
  6. If making a skillet pizza, preheat the skillet and lightly spray with non stick spray. Add in the dough, and then as the dough starts to cook, top the pizza directly in the skillet. Then add to oven and finish baking.
  7. If using a pizza stone, allow the stone to heat up for at least one hour prior to cooking pizza. Roll out dough on a piece of parchment paper and top as desired. Use a pizza peel or a baking sheet to transfer the pizza dough (still on the parchment) onto the stone and bake 8-10 minutes.
