Anybody know a good Pizza Dough Mix brand? Im looking for some easy way to make pizza dough quickly without having to let it sit

I've use a quick dough recipe that is pretty good.

If I remember correctly its 2 cups of flour, 2/3 or 3/4 cup of warm water, 1 packet of yeast and I think 1/4 tsp of salt.

I'd have to double check those measurements.

Essentially all you do is put the packet of yeast into the warm water until dissolved. Then take that and dump it into a bowl with your flour and salt and mix it all up.

Dump the dough on floured surface and knead it for 5 minutes or until its good and elastic. Then shape it into a ball.

Set it on a plate and cover it with plastic wrapped that you spray with cooking spray. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

After that short rise time you're good to go. Makes 1 large pizza good for 2 adults.

Craigums, I just use the Great Value ones from Wally World. They're like 44 cents/bag. I use them for my Pizzas on the grill. You do need to let the dough rise for ~5 minutes, personally I let it go a longer as I have other things that need to be done during that time. The yeast must be allowed to work on the flour to make glutin. Just curious, Is there a reason you can't wait for the dough to rise?? Or just that hungry? grin Phred52

You really don't have a choice about letting the dough rise as it's the nature of the beast. You need to let the yeast grow and eat the sugars in the dough giving off carbon dioxide making the dough rise.

Then working the dough aligns the gluten protiens in the flour giving it the stretchy consistency. Pizza dough you work, biscuit dough you don't as you want that fluffy.

I don't mind waiting for 5-15 minutes, I just don't want to let it sit for hours, I wont be starting the recipe until after 7pm and dont want to wait all night to be finished

I use the jiffy mix, around 50 cents. But when you put the powder in the bowl (this works for all crust mixes) add some garlic powerder, italian seasoning and basil to it. Adds a lot of flaver to crust that doesn't have a ton of it.

Give this a try ,our family use this allot and it's real easy and good.

INGREDIENTS

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)

2 1/2 cups bread flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

DIRECTIONS

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.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat or roll into a round. Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan or baker's peel dusted with cornmeal. Spread with desired toppings and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let baked pizza cool for 5 minutes before serving.

    • Stainless steel should work fine.
    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
