Time-Out: Copycat Garlic and Herb Pizza Dough

Print Friendly and PDF
It used to be that Trader Joe's had pizza dough for 99 cents.  It was great fun when we lived in Boston to pick it up on our way back to the apartment.  Of course, these days it's easier to just make it myself when I get home from the office.  I've done all sorts of different variations but the reality is our absolute favorite is the garlic and herb.

It's almost too easy to justify paying the now $1.25+ for the pizza dough, even when we can get to a Trader Joe's.  It takes us 5 minutes and tastes absolutely delicious.  Best part of all, you likely have most everything you need already in your cabinets except for just one key ingredient, yeast!

So, do what we do.  Twice a year, we head to BJs and get a tremendous yeast can that sits in our fridge for months while I use 2 1/4 tablespoons every week.  And when we get low, well, BJs is there for us (and our pizza loving minds).  You'll never have an excuse not to make pizza at home in the same time it takes to order and wait for that pizza delivery.
Copycat Garlic and Herb Pizza Dough
Serves:  1 large pizza (1 ball of dough)
2 1/4 tablespoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons italian seasoning

In a large bowl, combine yeast, water, and sugar.  Let sit for 5-7 minutes until foamy.  Add flour and salt.  Using a large wooden spoon*, combine the ingredients until a dough forms.  Add garlic powder and italian seasoning.  Flour your hands and in the bowl, knead the dough for 3-5 minutes.  Let sit for 5 minutes, until dough has risen slightly.

Roll out directly onto a greased pizza pan in order to avoid sticking when cooked.

*You can alternatively use your stand mixer by using the dough hook in place of the wooden spoon and your hands!
