Pizza is one of the most popular foods worldwide, and for a good reason. Nothing beats a slice of hot, fresh pizza, straight out of the oven. Making pizza at home can be a bit daunting, especially if you don’t have a lot of time. However, with our instant pot pizza dough recipe, you can make delicious homemade pizza in no time. In this post, we will show you how to make pizza dough in an Instant Pot, step-by-step.


To make our instant pot pizza dough, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water (240 ml)
  • 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast (7 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (15 ml)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (15 ml)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (360 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (6 grams)


A. Preparing the Instant Pot

Before making the pizza dough, you need to prepare the Instant Pot. To do this, add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot and put the trivet inside. Close the lid and turn the valve to the sealing position. Press the “Pressure Cook” button and set the time to 1 minute. Once the Instant Pot beeps, do a quick release by turning the valve to the venting position.

B. Making the dough

In a large bowl, combine the warm water, instant yeast, honey, and olive oil. Stir to combine and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes until the yeast is activated. Add the flour and salt to the bowl and stir until a dough forms. Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

C. Proofing the dough

Lightly oil a bowl and place the dough inside. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let the dough rise for 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free area. Alternatively, you can proof the dough in the Instant Pot by using the “Yogurt” function. Press the “Yogurt” button and set the time to 30 minutes.

Shaping the pizza dough

Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into two equal portions. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a circle, using a rolling pin or your hands. Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and top it with your favorite pizza toppings.

Baking the pizza

To bake the pizza, preheat the oven to 450°F (232°C) and place the pizza on a baking sheet or pizza stone. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. You can also bake the pizza in the Instant Pot using the “Air Fry” function. Preheat the Instant Pot by pressing the “Air Fry” button and setting the temperature to 400°F (204°C). Place the pizza on the trivet and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted.

Remember to prepare the Instant Pot, make the dough, proof it, shape it, and bake it to perfection. We hope you enjoy making this recipe and trying out different toppings to make it your own.
