Olive Oil Pizza Dough -- No Kneading Needed! --

10 mins (prep 10)
7 ingredients
2 servings
Upon having my first gander at this recipe, I clung tenaciously to it and haven't let go since. Adapted from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, this is a terrific and SUPER easy no-knead pizza dough. It's the same dough I use in the Wild Mushroom Pizza - Caramelized Onions, Fontina, Rosemary and the one I'll use forever. It's just too easy not to! This recipe is for the dough only and makes approximately two 10-inch pizzas bases. Top with your favorites, then mix it, let it rest for 2 hours and either use immediately or store it for 12 days. Make one now, one another day. Make both and eat 'em all by yourself, I won't tell! Easily doubled and does not include resting (2 hours) or baking (12 minutes) time.
