Food Processor Pizza Dough
Hi Everyone, are you looking for a super easy pizza dough recipe that doesn’t involve getting your hands into a sticky mess?
Try this Food Processor Pizza Dough!
It’s great if you want to prep pizza dough to use for the week for meals for yourself and/or your family.
Somehow making pizza dough in the food processor made it seem easier to make pizza dough and it makes me more likely to want to make a pizza dough recipe from scratch.
We also have a regular pizza dough recipe on the blog which I have linked to right below:
I would love to know what kind(s) of pizzas you would make using this pizza dough OR would you use the pizza dough to make something else, like rolls, bread, or pretzels?
- measuring spoons & cups
- mixing bowl(s)
- 2-cup wet measure
- kitchen towel or reusable beeswax wrap
- rolling pin
- dough scraper
- pastry mat or work surface
- food processor

Food Processor Pizza Dough
This Food Processor Pizza Dough comes together in a snap in your kitchen food processor. This is an easy, basic pizza dough that makes enough for 3 (12-inch) pizzas - a great recipe for meal prep!
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 1/4 cups warm water (105-115 degrees F or 40-46 degrees C)
- 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
- 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- Prepare the yeast: In a 2-cup wet measure, add water, and yeast. olive oil and sugar. Stir with a fork or spoon. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes or until it's foamy.
- Make the Pizza Dough: In your food processor, with the regular blade attachment, add all-purpose flour, and Kosher salt. Cover the food processor with the lid, leaving open the spout to pour in the prepared yeast-water mixture. Turn the food processor on and slowly pour in the prepared yeast-water mixture. Process the dough until it forms a bowl and cleans the sides as it turns around, then process the dough for an additional 30 seconds to "knead" the dough.
- First Dough Rise: Oil the inside of a large mixing bowl with olive oil, add the dough ball, and cover. Allow the dough to rise in a warm spot for 45 minutes or until doubles in size. While the dough is rising, you can prep any pizza toppings.
- Prep Dough for Cooking: After 45 minutes, punch the dough down and turn it out onto a floured surface (like a pastry mat). Separate them into 3 even dough balls, using a dough scraper (or other sizes that you prefer), and roll or stretch them out to form pizzas.
- To Cook the Pizza Dough: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Add desired pizza toppings to the dough while the oven is preheating. Cook for 15-20 minutes. When the pizza is done, transfer it to a cutting board, slice, and serve. Enjoy!
- Yield: Makes 3 (12 inches) pizza crusts or you can make smaller individual pizzas by dividing it further.
- Recipe Attribution: My Mother-in-Law, gave me this recipe and I made some tweaks to the process.

The food processor pizza dough recipe was quite good, but the website is awful! Made it very difficult to follow recipe. A bit jumbled compared to others I have used.
Sara Maniez says
I am so glad that you like the recipe! I just made a change to the website a day ago with the service I use for suggested recipes to make it cleaner. In the new year, I will be making a major design change to the website to further make it cleaner, much faster, and easier to use. I am working on several user experience-related projects right now and hopefully, that helps for the future!
The recipe calls for using the regular blade, not the dough blade. What’s the difference?
Sara Maniez says
Hello Barbara, You can definitely use the dough blade if you have one. Not all food processors come with dough blades. The recipe works with either. Thank you for your question!
