How to Make Pizza Dough in a Kitchenaid Mixer

I generally make my pizza dough by hand. I like the feel of the dough. I love kneading as I transform raw ingredients into a work of art: homemade pizza.

 Pizza dough, for me, these days, is fairly simple: flour, yeast salt and water. That's it that is all you need to make a great pizza dough. There are time when I have needed to make my dough quickly. That's when I bring out one of my best pizza making tools: the kitchenaid.

 I find this tool to be a great time saver when I am making pizza. The dough comes out great using this tool. I have gotten emails from friends who for health reasons, are unable to mix dough by hand. They love the idea of making pizza however, they are just unable to physically able to do so. This could be due to arthritis, or other debilitating problems.

 The kitchenaid can solve this problem. So it not only saves time but can help you if you are unable to knead dough.

 The last time I made pizza I tried an experiment.

I made 4 batches of dough. Two batches of dough I mixed by hand. Two batches I mixed using the kitchenaid.

 Here is the Pizza Therapy Dough Recipe:

  • 4 Cups of flour 
  • 1 teaspoon of yeast 
  • 1 teaspoon of salt 
  •  1 and 1/2 cups of water. 
 Simple easy, no problem. Here is a video of making pizza dough with the kitchenaid:


I found the kitchenaid a great way to make pizza dough. You can read the rest of my kitchenaid review, here.

 I highly recommend it as a cooking tool for the home chef or even a professional chef.
