When I first decided to try my hand at creating the perfect sourdough pizza dough, I was tremendously excited. I had seen videos of masterful chefs creating their own sourdough masterpieces and wanted to test my own (limited, amateur) baking skills.  

I began my journey to the perfect sourdough pizza dough with enthusiasm and optimism, but that quickly changed when I went through several failures and disappointing doughs. After a few attempts, I had zero success and was growing frustrated at how long it took for the dough to rise. With my patience waning, I decided to look for an easier alternative that would still give me similar results. 

I soon found out about food processor pizza dough recipes, which promised quick preparation time and delicious results. After doing some research on ingredient substitutions, I decided to try one of these recipes instead of the traditional sourdough recipe. Excitedly, I gathered all of the needed ingredients – all-purpose flour, instant dry active yeast, sugar, salt and olive oil – and began mixing them together in my food processor. Much to my delight, the process was incredibly fast and easy! The combination of ingredients easily blended into a smooth mixture within minutes. After kneading the soft dough for a few more minutes in the food processor bowl, it was ready for shaping and baking. 

The pizza turned out great! Although it did not have quite as complex flavours as sourdough pizza crusts do due to its shorter rising time, it still tasted incredible with its crisp texture and golden brown colour. From then on, I knew that dry active yeast-based recipes were going to be my go-to option when making pizza at home!
