Prep: 15 minutes   Bake: 20 minutes   Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3½ cups all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 bottle or can (12 ounces) beer such as lager, pale ale or IPA, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups favorite shredded cheese
  • Optional toppings: chopped/sliced bell pepper, black olives, cooked bacon, mushrooms, onion, pickled jalapeños, roasted red peppers and/or tomato; pepperoni

Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 450°; brush 2 cookie sheets with oil. In large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, sugar and salt; gradually add beer to flour mixture, stirring after each addition until incorporated.
  2. On lightly floured work surface, knead dough 1 minute or until smooth and elastic. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces; with rolling pin, roll out each into a 10-inch circle and transfer to prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake crusts 5 minutes; top with sauce, cheese and optional toppings, if desired. Bake pizzas 15 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is golden brown. Cut each pizza into 8 slices.

Chef Tip

Prepared dough can be frozen by individually wrapping each dough piece with plastic wrap and freezing for up to 2 months; thaw dough in refrigerator overnight and bring to room temperature before rolling out, topping and baking.
