No Knead Pizza Recipe

I make a lot of pizza.  I am always trying new recipes.  I have found many that  I like but none as easy as this one.  This recipe has been all over the internet for a while but I just recently got around to trying it.  It is great!

Mix 7  1/2 cups of flour with 1/2 tsp. of rapid rise yeast, 4 tsp. salt and 3 cups of water.  Mix this thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise on the counter overnight.
Break off pieces and use it as needed.  It will last for 4 or 5 days in the fridge.  I keep it in a ziplock bag.

Your puppy will adore the crust.

I make 2 at a time since they are so good when they are fresh out of the oven.  Just break off pieces of the dough, sprinkle it with a bit of flour and shape it however you wish.

I have always made pizza sauce and loaded lots of things on top of my pizza.  My new pizza is simpler and so much healthier.  I buy San Marzano crushed tomatoes.  This is all I use for the sauce.  I slice fresh mozzarella into thin slices and lay them on top.  I then sprinkle a bit of oregano or Italian seasonings and a bit of parmesan cheese.  This bakes on a pizza stone in a 450 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown. As soon as they come out of the oven, I sprinkle them with fresh basil leaves. I let them sit on a cutting board for about 15 minutes before cutting.  These taste exactly like the pizzas you get in Italy.

That sounds like delicious, simplified.
I have to admit that I'm no big fan of pizza. I eat it perhaps once or twice a year. I don't understand why though because everything I love to eat can be put on them :-)

Have a great day!

I knew that I smelled pizza from somewhere and its you October, and I hope you guys are hanging in there with all of this heat. My grass is now yellow and I wont have to do any mowing this week because there's nothing to cut except straw! Richard
I keep forgetting to make this. I'm doing it right now. I love pizza, simple or loaded. With all the wonderful garden veggies what am I thinking! Thank you.

Beautiful, simple summer eating. Must try this!

Sorry to hear about the hellish heat. Poor Teddy, she must be unimpressed! But only 3 & 1/2 months until Halloween. Keep that in mind & I'll try & send our rain your way.

Great recipe. Exactly how many little pizzas does this make? I wanted the folks to make little pizzas at my Solar Cookout but can't afford to feed everybody! What individual size do you end up with, 12" 8" 6", and how many total does this recipe make? I can double, triple, etc. up to be ready for whatever but I'd like to start with an idea. (push comes to shove, there's always the old pita bread, but it'd be great to actually bake a whole pizza!) Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Oh yummy, that looks so delicious. I love pizza too.

This made me chuckle because a local pizza place here advertises their shop by using the line, "We KNEAD the DOUGH, stop by for a bite." I have been using the same recipe for my dough for about 30 years. But yours sounds yummy too. TEDDY looks happy. take care.

What a handy recipe! I plan to give this a try!
Well, now, if I had a pizza stone I might just try this...instead I'll pay $20 for a big unhealthy one...think of you...and wish to heck I had a pizza stone! :(

Wonderful. I'd love to know if the dough can be frozen?
