I love recipes that I can stretch to feed more than just our family, although, when I make pizza I tend to make quite a lot, because it's a family favorite, and the boys especially enjoy having leftovers or munching on it throughout the day.
I already have a pizza dough recipe for you, here on the blog. It's my honey pizza dough which I've been making since my teenage years, it always turns out just perfect, fluffy and rises beautifully.
But with that said, I'm always on the lookout for new dough recipes, so I'm bringing you a whole new pizza dough for a sheet pan pizza that can feed 12 and is made in a big sheet pan. Obviously, you can play around with it, use whatever toppings you prefer, double or even triple the recipe depending on how many people you're serving and so on.
Sheet Pan Pizza
Source: The Baker Mama
2 packages (4-1/2 teaspoons) active dry yeast
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cups warm water
4 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour
1 tablespoon garlic salt
½ cup olive oil, divided
1 cup pizza sauce
Coat an 18x13-inch sheet pan with ¼ cup olive oil and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the yeast and sugar with the warm water. Allow to proof about 10 minutes.
Add the flour and garlic salt and mix on low speed for a few minutes before slowly adding the remaining ¼ cup of olive oil. Mix until a smooth ball starts to form, about 5 minutes.
Press dough evenly onto the bottom and up the sides of the prepared sheet pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450°F. Once dough has risen to almost double in height, flatten the bottom and press the dough up the sides of the pan with your hands.
Spread pizza sauce evenly over dough. Add your toppings and then cover with the cheese of your liking. Finish with some Italian seasoning.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust starts to brown and the cheese starts to bubble. Let set 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
