A delicious and easy no-knead pizza dough ready in 20 minutes; no knead, no rise, no baking. All the magic happens on the stovetop, and it yields a lovely soft and chewy crust.
Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
This is a very good pizza dough recipe, especially if you’re really pressed for time because it requires no kneading and no oven. All you have to do is just mix and cook. However, in order to get that desired soft and chewy result, it’s advisable to use bread flour; however, all-purpose flour works well too.
Pizza is always a thing in my house, and we enjoy making our own from scratch. I know the store-bought pizza exists, and the truth is, we have tried several brands, but none of them seem to hit the spot for us, and who knows exactly what’s in there? The preservatives, the oils, and more.
I know you can also get fresh pizza from practically any street corner as well, and yes, we do order occasionally, but the truth is, the pizza we buy is not as nearly as good as the pizza we make at home.
This pizza dough recipe is so easy that my 9-year-old has already mastered it, and he now makes it by himself, and it turns out perfectly well each time.

As you can see, this pizza dough recipe is foolproof; however, we need to get down to some basics in order to achieve a perfect result:
- Just like any no-knead dough recipe, after all the dough ingredients are well combined, the resulting dough will be very wet and sticky. Don’t be tempted to add more flour. The wet dough is the main reason why you don’t need to wait for the crust to rise like the traditional crust, and this is what makes the dough rise more easily and quickly when exposed to oven heat. This yields a pizza that is soft and chewy when baked.
- Use a non-stick pan or a cast-iron skillet. In that way, you don’t have to worry about the pizza sticking to the pan when fully baked. Trust me, the pizza will release easily from the pan.
- If you notice the crust is cooking too fast after 10 minutes, you can reduce the heat to low until the pizza is fully cooked.
Now you can go ahead and whip up your delicious pizza in only 20 minutes.
- This pizza dough works well for thin crust.
- Feel free to use the store-bought pizza sauce if you don’t feel like making your own from scratch.
- Customize it by using your choice of cheese and toppings
