This easy tutorial for proofing pizza dough is made in an Instant Pot pressure cooker and can be used the same day! It has a quick prep and rise time and is the perfect recipe for pizza night with a family.
Turn on the yogurt setting (normal heat) on your Instant Pot. Pour warm water into your Instant Pot inner pot. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Sprinkle yeast on top of water and let activate for about a minute.
While yeast activates, mix together flour, salt, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Once yeast activates, mix in flour mixture. Form a fairly stiff ball of dough (sprinkle in extra flour if needed). Pour half of the olive oil over the top and rub over ball.
Once dough rises, remove from Instant Pot and kneed in extra oil (and a little extra flour if needed to make the dough more firm - it should not really be sticky). Separate into balls and proof in the Instant Pot for 15-20 extra minutes.
