Pizza is one food my girls are very picky about. I know… I was surprised too! Usually, kids love pizza but my oldest decided she didn’t like pizza after having it at 7 different birthday parties in a span of 1 month. I get it, I totally do. I would be tired of it too!
For me, pizza is the ultimate go to with unlimited toppings and variations. I didn’t want Sanaya to feel an aversion for one of the most loved foods on this planet so I stepped in. After trying so many different pizzerias, I finally decided to make it at home.
This Garlic Herb Pizza Dough is so delicious and light. When the dough is rolled out, it’s not too thick and makes for a nice flatbread. Some days, I will roll it out into 1 large pizza and others, I’ll get the girls involved and have them decorate their own personal pizzas. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this delicious garlic-y, herb-y pizza dough!
Try it out! It is so delicious!
From my kitchen to yours, enjoy your pizza party!
Garlic Herb Pizza Dough
- 2 1/4 tsp (1 packet) active dry yeast
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 c plus 2 Tbsp warm water
- 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
- 1/2 Tbsp dried basil
- 1/2 Tbsp dried parsley
- In a bowl or stand mixer, add yeast, sugar, and water and mix well. Let stand for 5-7 minutes so the yeast can bloom.
- Add the flour, garlic powder, and dried herbs. Finally add in the salt*. If mixing by hand, knead into a soft, tight dough. If using the stand mixer, set speed to 4 and knead until dough forms.
- Transfer dough to a well oiled bowl and let sit for a minimum of 10 minutes and maximum of 4 hours.
- Roll out on a flat surface with flour and top with your favorite toppings.
- Bake topped pizza at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is melted.
* Adding salt at the end is very important. If you add it in the beginning, it can kill of the yeast and your dough will not rise well.
