Dont have time to make my own dough. Can anyone recommend a good store bought dough? I have only tried the Baboli crust and it was pretty good.

    i use dough from my grocery store in a pinch! i have publix near me not sure if you have one of them but most grocery stores will have some kind of dough they sell as pizza dough. also if you are in a real pinch i like using flour tortillas as pizza dough. or you can make a french bread pizza or my mom used to use hamburger buns just top as you would and stick in the egg or oven!!

    If you have a local pizza place that you like they may sell you dough balls for a few dollars each.
  • I've even used one of the Doughboy cardboard tube crusts and it came out good. My publix has a Pizza box in the bakery where they sell dough sauce cheese and pepperoni. I've tried that too.

    Not much help on the store dough, always make our own, @Bente reminded me the grandkids like English muffins topped with whatever they like and tossed on the egg (or oven).
    The adults are into their own pizza, the kids get to make "personal" size ones using English muffins.

  • Central Market sells a good dough.  It's frozen, so its not necessarily quick.  But, with a little planning, it's quicker than anything else.

    Consider buying the tipo 00 flour - it's so fine, it's ready to use within an hour or two of making it.  Only takes about 10 minutes to measure the stuff out into the KA.  I just cover the bowl and wait an hour or two.  Faster than driving to the store, not counting the waiting.

  • This is the fastest way  know how to make dough.
    1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.

    @Plano_JJ - Tom Thumb carries their own Safeway brand, but the one by my house is kinda hit or miss. Sometimes they have a few out ready to go, sometimes they only have them back in the freezer. If you go by the deli section you can ask them where they keep it, its usually right there.

    If you hvae a favorite local mom and pop pizza shop, I'd recommend stopping in and asking them.

    Have you looked into the bread machine recipe on the naked whiz site? Super easy and I think my machine only takes 90 minutes. Dump the ingredients in, hit dough cycle and it will even rise inside the machine.
