Great Pizza Dough Recipe

I used whey from my awesome Greek Yogurt Recipe in this pizza dough!  You can use water instead – I just happened to keep the whey for just this purpose!

The crusts freeze really well for a quick dinner with whatever you have on hand at the time!

Great Pizza Dough Recipe


  • 12 oz liquid whey (or water), warmed to 100 degrees (my breadmaker warms the liquid!)
  • 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp dry active yeast


  1. Layer items in breadmaker pan, in order, yeast in well on top of flour
  2. Press dough cycle
  3. When complete, remove from breadmaker pan, place in greased pan and turn to coat all sides, cover with towel and allow it to rise for an hour
  4. Remove from bowl, divide into 2 balls for larger crusts, or 4 for individual size pizzas
  5. On a well floured surface, press dough out to a circle - I used a floured rolling pan as well
  6. Preheat grill
  7. Place dough onto lightly greased pan, and then make the rest of the crusts
  8. Place dough onto well greased grill pan and grill until black grill marks form, flip over, grill other side
  9. Preheat oven to 425 with a pizza stone in the oven while preheating. OR you can bake them in the grill (they just have to be very carefully watched!)
  10. Top pizza with sauce and desired toppings - we used deli turkey, peppers, onion, pepperoni, goat cheese, fresh mozzarella, basil from the garden, mushrooms, and parmesan cheese
  11. Slide pizzas onto preheated pizza stone (this makes the crust crispy!) and bake approximately 15-17 minutes, watching the last few minutes
  12. Remove from oven, allow to cool 5 minutes
