Good morning my friends! Today I am excited to share an awesome recipe and some fun news. First, the recipe.
What do you typically do for dinner on Halloween night? At my house, it’s usually about the last thing on our minds. My kids are still pretty little and they need to be in bed by 8:30, so it’s always a scramble to get their homework done, get them into their costumes, out trick-or-treating, and back again, in time for baths and bed. Doesn’t leave a lot of time for a decent meal, right? In the past, we’ve ended up doing take-out, but I’d feel much better if I we could all sit down together, to a home-cooked supper.
This year, I’m really happy to have an easy dinner recipe that I know my kids will love and be excited to eat. Something that I’ve made from scratch, with wholesome ingredients (and lots of love!). Pizza is a perfect solution. I hide lots of veggies in the sauce (tomatoes, onions, summer squash, eggplant, carrots… I puree it so smooth, they’d never suspect), and the cheese and pepperoni provide a little protein.
I’ve made pizza plenty of times before, and as much as everyone loves it, it usually requires a good bit of advance planning, especially when you’re talking homemade crust. But when I got wind of this pizza dough recipe, everything changed.
Thirty minutes, my friends. Can you even? I actually had to read through the recipe more than once because I was like, wait, where’s the rising part??? -there is none. You can whip up this dough, press it into a pan, top it, and bake it, all in one shot. Boom boom boom. Talk about a timesaver! You barely even need to plan ahead.
This recipe was provided to me by the nice people at Fleischmann’s® Yeast. I have always loved using Fleischmann’s in my baking, and it’s never let me down. So I was really thrilled when they emailed me a couple months ago, asking me to help spread the word about their fabulous products, and host a series of videos showing how easy and fun it is to bake with yeast. I took my kiddos with me up to NYC and we spent the day on a soundstage creating the tutorials. So. much. fun. Here’s a sneak peek behind-the-scenes:
You can check out the pizza video here, and there are a few more to come (I’ll keep ya posted!).
The pizza was the last recipe we shot, and, can I just tell you? My kids were literally crying on the way out of there. They loved this pizza so much, they didn’t want to leave! So you can bet I didn’t waste any time making it for them again (and again!) here at home.
Your family is going to love this recipe too. And so will you- because it’s so quick and easy, and completely customize-able. It’s up to you: make it thick, thin, whole wheat, whatever you like.
There was a time when I was really intimidated by the thought of baking with yeast, but no more. Just follow the directions closely and make sure your water is warm, but not hot. When it comes to toppings, the possibilities are limitless, so let your creativity run wild!

30-Minute Pizza Crust
- 1 3/4 cups (218.75 g) all-purpose flour, (you may need as much as 2 1/4 cups)
- 1/4 ounce (7.09 g) Fleischmann's® Pizza Crust Yeast OR Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast, (1 envelope)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons (1.5 teaspoons) sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon (0.75 teaspoon) salt
- 2/3 cup (166.67 ml) very warm water, (120 to 130 degrees F*)
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 1/2 cup (122.5 ml) pizza sauce
- other toppings as desired
- 1 cup (112 g) shredded mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Combine 1 cup ﬂour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
- Add very warm water and oil; mix until well blended, about 1 minute.
- Gradually add enough remaining ﬂour to make a soft dough. (Dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky.)
- Knead** on a ﬂoured surface, adding additional ﬂour if necessary, until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes. (If using RapidRise Yeast, let dough rest at this point for 10 minutes.)
- Pat dough with ﬂoured hands to ﬁll greased pizza pan or baking sheet. OR roll dough on a ﬂoured counter to 12inch circle; place in greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Form a rim by pinching the edge of the dough.
- Spread with pizza sauce. Top with desired toppings and sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake on lowest oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and crust is browned.
Pizza is my favorite thing to cook with the kids. It is one food that their “help” can actually be help. You can’t really screw up putting toppings on, and they love to customize their own little pizzas.
It’s great for kiddos! Mine love it too!
I HAVE TO TRY THIS. Pizza is my favorite thing in the whole world and yours looks incredible! I love that the crust is ready in 30 minutes! We will be trying this weekend, I hope!
Oh yay! I really hope you enjoy! This recipe has gotten a lot of good use around my house. I love that you barely even need to plan ahead 😀 Thanks for dropping by and for the sweet comment, Aimee!
What?! I’d love to be able to make homemade pizza in 30 minutes! I’m definitely going to have to try this. I am loving all your videos Allie!
Thank you Ashley! I’m loving yours too 🙂 Definitely try this recipe if your girls like homemade pizza as much as my boys do- it blew me away how fast and good it was!
Great recipe! I’ve a teen boy at home who LOVES pizza and this will fit into our crazy school/band/theater/life schedule.
But what was the fun news? Did I miss it? Or was it the food videos? I’m slow I guess. I sort of thought you were going to announce a “bun in the oven” besides the pizza. :o)
Haha I wish Kristi! No, the news was the videos/partnership with Fleischmann’s. Sorry if that was confusing! So happy you like the recipe- I’ve two boys as well and we love it for just the same reason!
I love that these are so quick!! And again, I LOVE the videos. Just so cute!
Thank you so much sweetie!
Allie you are SUCH a superstar! Going over to watch your video now. This pizza looks AMAZING!
Lol thank you Jess! You’re too sweet!
This puts delivery to shame, girlfriend! I mean it takes WAY longer than 30 minutes to call, order, and wait for the pizza to be delivered than 30 minutes! AND 99.9% it tastes like cardboard! This is beyond perfect! LOVE that the dough doesn’t require any rising! How perfect is that?! The video is so cute, I am kinda obsessed with all your videos… I’m thinking I might start to classify as a class A B.A.M Allie stalker. lol 😉 Pinned! Hope you and the family have a fabulous weekend and a great Halloween!! xo
Thank you Cheyanne! You are so right this is way quicker (and more fun)! Thanks so much for watching my videos- you are so sweet and supportive 😀
Just watched the video and it was so great. You are adorable! This pizza is calling my name. I don’t even know what I used to eat for dinner on Halloween. Probably just candy until I made myself sick. This pizza is a much better choice!
Thank you so much Liz! Halloween night is always a scramble and dinner is usually the last thing on our minds. I thought this was a pretty good solution! Thanks for clicking over and watching the video, and for the sweet comment!
