Kid-Size Pizza Rounds

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 8 mins

Make this pizza dough in advance so that your kids can roll it out and top it with ingredients of their choice.


1package active dry or fresh
1teaspoon sugar
1cup warm water, 105F to 115F
3cups all-purpose flour
1teaspoon kosher salt
1teaspoon chopped rosemary
1tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
-- Assorted toppings, such as tomatoes, herbs, cheese and chicken


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in ¼ cup warm water.
  2. In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine flour, salt and rosemary. Add oil, yeast mixture, and remaining ¾ cup water; mix on low speed until dough comes cleanly away from sides of bowl and clusters around dough hook, about 5 minutes.
  3. Turn dough out onto a clean work surface and knead by hand 2 or 3 minutes longer until dough is smooth and firm. Cover with a clean, damp towel and let rise in a warm spot about 30 minutes. (When ready, the dough will stretch as it is lightly pulled.)
  4. Divide dough into 4 balls. Work each ball by pulling down the sides and tucking under the bottom of the ball. Repeat 4 or 5 times.
  5. Cover dough with a damp towel and let rest 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 450F.
  7. Roll out dough into 8-inch rounds, top with desired ingredients and bake on a pizza stone 8 to 9 minutes.
