One-Hour Homemade Pizza

I eat a similar pizza with same toppings at my favourite Italian restaurant. I decided to emulate the recipe by making mine at home. The result: perfect. It comes together in only an hour. Winner!
Prep: 40 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 1 hour
Servings: 4 servings


For the Pizza Dough

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon rapid dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2-1 cup warm water

For the Toppings

  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup sliced pitted olives
  • 1/2 cup sauteed mushrooms (optional)
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped into large chunks


  • In a bowl, mix together all dry ingredients for the dough. Then pour in warm water gradually until it forms a slightly sticky dough. Transfer the dough to a floured board and knead for 5 minutes. Form a circle with the dough then roll it out into a bigger circle. Place on a prepared pizza tray. If you do not have a pizza tray, roll out dough into a rectangle and place on a regular baking tray.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Rub sauce all over the pizza then sprinkle on the cheese and arrange all the toppings on top. Sprinkle more cheese if you wish.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about twenty minutes until cheese is well melted and the dough is slightly brown. Cut into wedges and enjoy!


No need to wait for dough to raise here. The perfect pizza in under an hour! Feel free to change up the toppings - these emulate one of my favorite local pizzas.

One-Hour Homemade Pizza

I really enjoy this pizza recipe. It is easy to put together and so delicious. You can customise the toppings as you wish. Sausage, chicken and pepperoni make great pizza toppings!
