Total Time: 1 hr 10 mins
Course: easy pizza dough
Cuisine: American, Italian
Servings: 2 12" pizza


  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • cups Semolina flour Substitute with all purpose flour, if you don't have semolina flour
  • 1 tbsp Pizza dough flavor (optional)
  • 2 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • cups Beer, at room temperature I used India Pale Ale


  • Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix and knead until a smooth, soft dough forms.
  • Cover and set aside to rise for 30 minutes or for up to 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F with a baking stone (if you have one) on a lower rack.
  • Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 10" or 12" round.
  • Place the dough on a parchment paper (if using the baking stone) or on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake the pizzas right away for thin crust pizza, but for thicker crust, allow the crust to rise for 30~60 minutes.
  • Transfer the pizzas along with the parchment paper to the baking stone. Or place the baking sheet in the oven.
  • Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top as desired, and baked for an additional 8~12 minutes, or until the bottom crust is crisp and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  • Remove from the oven and serve hot.
