Make Ahead Pizza Dough for Busy Nights

This low sodium pizza dough recipe is fantastic to make ahead of time for a party, potluck, or just a busy week at home. Making this recipe in advance allows you to skip any cooking or prep when you are ready to eat.  I made this pizza dough a few days ahead of time, wrapped it in plastic wrap, and kept it in the fridge for a few days before baking. And it tasted amazing!  This is a great recipe to entertain with too – you can make a few batches and have a pizza topping bar for parties. A crowd-pleaser that everyone is sure to love!

  1. Hi Kelly,
    This is based on 16 servings—how much is a serving? Sorry to keep asking these questions, but my husband has heart disease and I must be very accurate with his sodium. thnx, susan

      Hi Susan,
      I made this recipe for my grandparents who are also on a strict low sodium diet. I ended up adjusting the amounts a little bit so instead of this full recipe, I did about 2/3 of what this recipe calls for. It rolled out nicely in an 18×12 baking sheet. The crust was really good! The 3 of us ate the entire pan with 2 square slices left over (we did not do any sides or anything). I did end up needing a few more minutes to bake than this called for, but I will definitely be making this crust again!

    This crust is amazing! Easy and very flexible! I sometimes make 2 crusts, but one of the crusts I cool after the 6 minute prebake, then wrap and freeze it. Then on those busy days, I grab it from the freezer and it’s ready to go! I have even made completely premade pizzas on it, frozen, then baked! It’s a perfect density and the flavor point for 1 sodium per serving is delicious! Best recipe find ever for house!

    I’ve been struggling to find a good low sodium pizza dough that will cook well in my Ooni and this one is perfect. Flakes up so well. Good crisp texture. Made a triple batch for a pizza party and it was a huge hit.

  4. Hi! If I want to make a smaller pizza, can half this dough be frozen after it rises for the 1 hour? Thanks!

    1. Hi Cathy, yes it can be frozen for later! Freeze, wrap in plastic wrap (I also put it in a plastic bag). The day you are ready to use the dough, take it out of the freezer 1-2 hours before baking so it thaws completely. Let us know how it turns out!

  5. Hi Kelly
    The entire recipe, makes how many crusts? Is it intended to just make one large crust and then cut into 16 slices? Trying to figure it out! Thank you in advance

    1. Hi Cynthia,
      This recipe makes 2 large crusts (~12 inches in diameter), or 4 smaller ones (~6 inches in diameter). I usually opt for 2 larger pizzas, then cut them into 8 slices each for the full 16 servings of the recipe.

      I just added a note in the recipe card too in case others are wondering, so thank you for asking!

      Let us know how it turns out 🙂

    1. Hi Elesha,
      I haven’t tried it with a gluten free flour yet – but I believe if you use a 1:1 gluten free baking mix, you should come out with a very similar result to all-purpose. If you try it with a gluten free flour, please let us know how it turns out and I can add a note in the recipe card.
      Thank you,
      Kelly

    1. Hi James, that’s a great question! I haven’t tried this yet with any flour besides white all-purpose. If you are using a whole wheat flour, I’d recommend half whole wheat, and half white to start with and see how it turns out. When I make wheat bread I usually use a half/half of that method. I’ll try it next time I make this dough. If you do make it with an alternative flour, please let us know how it turns out!
      – Kelly

    My husband’s response to this recipe “hot damn, I can have pizza again.” Thanks so much for the recipe – we both loved it. This will be our go-to pizza crust recipe – so much flavor – don’t miss the salt at all.
