How To Make Pizza in 2 Hours From Scratch

I’ve owned a bread-maker for over 10 years. It’s one of the most important machines in my kitchen!  It helped develop my interest in dough and spurred me on to buy a pizza oven.  Check out the video here where I show how I make pizza in under two hours!

In the January sales I bought a newer version of my current, old breadmaker.  This one has more options and can help make a sourdough starter.  More on that in another video and blog in a few weeks time.

Pizza Dough

Sometimes, you will need to make pizza FAST.  This is how I do it.

Two hours seems like a long time to make and bake a pizza, however, it’s not as bad as it sounds! I did nothing for most of that time.

I just hung around waiting for the bread-machine to do its thing and then for the dough to rest.  There are a few key things to do and I’ve listed them below:

  • Weigh out the dough recipe ingredients – listed opposite.
  • Add them to the breadmaker and select the pizza dough option.
  • Weigh out the kneaded dough and split into the size ball you want to make.  I made mine to 200g.
  • Place the dough ball in a plastic bowl with an air-tight lid and put it in a warm cupboard or room for 1 hour.

Your dough is now ready to be stretched out into a pizza base, topped and cooked in your pizza oven.

All my pizza dough is made with a breadmaker and I would recommend using one if you are going to make lots of pizza dough.

Breadmakers have been designed to knead dough and they do it really well.  My pizza dough is kneaded consistently every time and I couldn’t be without it.
