EZ DOH makes it easy for anyone to make PIZZA - including your kids!

Summer is here. Kids are often looking for something to do… and something to eat. Why not solve both problems at the same time by having your kids make the pizza dough?

All you need is our EZ DOH hand-crank mixer and ingredients you have in your pantry. No electricity, no motors, no noise, no mess. It's safe and fun to use.

4 Simple Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of instant yeast (we used Red Star platinum. One packet contains ¼ ounce of yeast)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 ½ cups of unbleached all-purpose flour
  • If you’ve never made pizza dough or bread before, watch our EZ DOH video for a quick tutorial on making dough with the EZ DOH mixer.

Directions:

  1. Place the warm water and yeast into the EZ DOH container and stir to dissolve the yeast.
  2. Let the yeast and water work together for one minute.
  3. Add the flour and salt and start turning the crank handle. Turn the crank handle both ways to make the job easier, and after 3-5 minutes the dough should be smooth and soft and all ingredients should be mixed together.
  4. Unscrew the side knobs and remove the mixing assembly, wiping the dough from the dough hook.
  5. Remove dough from container, and spray (or wipe) the container with cooking oil. Pat and smooth the dough ball, place it back in the oiled container, cover with dish towel and let it rise until it doubles in size (our dough took 1 hour to rise).
  6. Rub flour over your hands, to keep dough from sticking to you, and roll out or flatten the dough into a 12”-14” diameter circle. Place the rolled-out dough onto a pizza stone dusted with corn meal to prevent sticking. You can also use a greased pan. Top it any way you like before baking it in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
We made our own pizza sauce (recipe below), but you can use a prepared sauce or any recipe you like.

We topped ours with thinly sliced fresh mushrooms and pepperoni, with 6 oz shredded mozzarella on top - but of course you can use anything you like.

EZ DOH makes the whole process a lot easier, and allows children and people of all ability levels to enjoy the process of making their own pizza dough.

Pizza Sauce Recipe

This is enough sauce for 2 pizzas.
  • One 15 ounce can of tomato sauce
  • One 6 ounce can of tomato paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
