Pizza Dough in an Instant Pot

Print Recipe


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 pack yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • 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.
  • Allow dough to proof in Instant Pot for 30 minutes to an hour. Dough should rise to about double volume; poke down with a fork if needed.
  • 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). Spread into one very big pizza or 4 personal-sized pizzas and bake dough at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Add toppings and bake for an additional 12-15 minutes to finish pizza.
