Pizza a la Whatever!

in quick and easy whole grain dairy free gluten free overnight guaranteed classic


Pizza is the ultimately flexible flatbread. The only topping we consider essential is cheese — everything else can be left to chance, or to what needs to be used from the refrigerator. We keep a baking stone on the bottom oven rack and, for a crispy crust, use a perforated pizza pan, placing the pan directly on the stone.

Choose your measure:


  1. Combine all of the ingredients, and knead on a lightly oiled work surface until the dough is smooth, about 8 minutes.
  2. Place the dough in a clean, oiled bowl, turn to grease the top, cover, and let rise in a warm place until not quite doubled in bulk, about 40 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  4. Oil a 12" to 14" round pizza pan. Pat the dough into the pan.
  5. Bake the dough for 6 to 8 minutes, then add the sauce and toppings of your choice and bake an additional 5 to 8 minutes. If the dough has puffed during baking, just prick it and flatten it before spreading on the sauce of your choice. (See the tips below for topping recommendations.)
