This bread is ready very fast and with minimal fuss. I call it pizza bread, because I use my standard pizza dough and bake it into two round loaves. This is the bread of choice when I have a short notice of company. If I start it at 2PM, by 6PM the fresh loaves are sliced and on the table.
2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2-1/4 tsp instant yeast [2-1/4 tsp = 1 package]
1/4 cup oil
1 cup lukewarm water desired toppings
• Place flour sugar, salt and instant yeast in a large bowl.
• Add the oil and the lukewarm water.
• Mix well.
• Let dough rest for 15 minutes.
• Transfer the dough to a stand beater and with dough hook attachment beat at medium high speed for 4 minutes. Or place the dough on a floured board and kneed until very elastic.
• Place the dough, it will be a bit sticky, in a lightly oiled bowl and turn over.
• Let the dough rise until doubled.
• Punch the dough down.
• Divide dough and shape into two balls.
• Preheat the oven to 400F.
• Place the balls on a parchment lined baking sheet.
• Sprinkle a little flour on the top and cut two slits into the dough.
• Let the breads double and then place them in the preheated oven and bake until nice golden brown.



  1. Hi Zsuzsa! I found you via your moving comment on Bizzy Lizzy's lovely blog. I love your pizza bread, because I am not much of a cook, and I like things nice and quick and easy! Bye for now, Jane.

    1. Nice to meet you Jane! I hope to see you again.

  2. Zsuzsa, funny thing but we buy our 'pizza' dough sometimes; which is actually a bread dough, already proofed and ready to punch down and prepare the pizza with it, or make a loaf of bread.
    We get this fresh dough at our local supermarket, and one ball of dough, which is 1 lb. costs about $2.50 which they have fresh, every day!

    Your bread looks totally amazing, and I just love your recipe which could be used for pizza, as well...doubles as bread. I am copying, & pasting this great recipe to print out. Just love it, and thanks for sharing! xo

    1. How are you Elisabeth? Things have been very hectic here of late. I hope we can catch up sometime soon.

  3. Delicious looking bread with a nice open crumb. My pizza dough recipe is similar and doubles as focaccia dough. Always fun to make a batch.

  4. Hi Zsuzsa,
    I just started following your wonderful recipes and they remind me of my childhood.
