Beer Pizza Crust

Every year for New Year's Eve we make our own pizzas and jello shots. Now we use to have a night out but that was before kids. So we make it a night in and have just much fun as a night on the town. We put the kids to bed early and enjoy the goodies. :)

A fun fact ~ New Year's Eve is the second most consumed pizza day next to the Super Bowl of course! So go eat pizza! :)

Beer Pizza Crust

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups beer, room temperature
  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder (opt)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Italian seasoning (opt)

Cooking Directions

  1. *Mix and knead together all of the dough ingredients by hand, mixer or bread machine until you've made a smooth, soft dough. Roll dough out for a thin crust or cover and allow it to rise for 30 minutes to an hour for thicker crust. (I let mine rise for the full hour)
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F with the pizza stone (if you're using one) on a lower rack. Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a to 12" round. Place the rounds on parchment paper, if you're going to use a pizza stone. Or place the dough on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Poke crust with a fork several times. Transfer the pizzas, parchment and all, to the baking stone. Or place the pans in the oven.
  3. Bake for 5 minutes on lower rack. Remove from the oven, top as desired, and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes on middle rack, until the bottom crust is crisp and the cheese is bubbly and browned. (Mine was done in 5 minutes but the original recipe called for 15 mins of cook time so more may be needed.)

Makes 2 - 12 inch pizzas

This looks so good. I love that you used beer. I'm not a beer drinker, but I do love to cook with beer. Thanks for sharing.
