Sure, you can buy pre-made pizza dough, but why not blend up a unique and homemade pizza dough using your Blendtec? Experiment with whole grain flours, herbs, and seasonings to create a one-of-a-kind pizza crust. The Blendtec is perfect for achieving the right texture, so your dough will be ready to roll out in minutes.

Pizza Dough


  • 1 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. Honey
  • 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vegetable or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup warm water


  1. Add water, yeast, and honey to Twister jar, and place lid on jar. Hold lid with one hand, and with other hand press "Pulse" 2 times. Allow yeast to proof 5–10 minutes.
  2. Add salt, oil, and flour to jar, and place lid on jar. Hold lid with one hand, and with other hand pulse 6–8 times, turning lid counterclockwise during blending. Allow dough to rise in jar (with lid in place) until doubled.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°F, and heat baking stone or pan in oven.
  4. Roll out dough on well-oiled or floured surface. Place rolled-out dough on paddle, thin cutting board, or cookie sheet dusted with cornmeal. Cover dough with sauce and favorite toppings.
  5. Slide pizza from cornmeal-covered surface to heated baking stone or pan by wiggling pizza gently.

Chop Toppings with Ease

Use the Blendtec Immersion Blender, which converts into a food processor, to chop your favorite pizza toppings quickly and uniformly. Whether it's dicing crunchy bell peppers, slicing onions, or mincing olives, the Blendtec blender ensures that you save time while achieving evenly distributed toppings. This uniformity not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your pizzas but also ensures a consistent flavor in every bite.

Personalize and Assemble

Envision a cozy corner in your kitchen turned into a delightful pizza assembly station, brimming with all the colorful toppings and homemade sauces whipped up in your Blendtec. This is where the magic happens! Invite your friends and family to roll up their sleeves and personalize their pizzas. It's these moments, full of laughter and choices (extra cheese, please!), that truly bring warmth and joy to your pizza party.

Bake and Enjoy

Once the pizzas are lovingly assembled, it's time to transition to baking. Start by preheating your oven to the ideal temperature, which is usually 450°F. This high heat is crucial for achieving that perfect pizza crust - golden and crispy on the outside, yet soft and chewy inside. Place your pizzas on pizza stones or baking pans, which help in evenly distributing the heat. The key is to bake until the crust is perfectly golden and the cheese atop bubbles into a gooey, irresistible layer. Bake for approximately 6–8 minutes.

Blend Up Dessert

A pizza party isn't complete without a sweet note at the end, and your Blendtec comes in handy here as well. Consider making a dessert pizza, a delightful twist to the traditional savory treat. Use your Blendtec to blend a luscious mixture of chocolate hazelnut spread, cream cheese, and fresh berries to create a rich and creamy dessert sauce. This sauce then becomes the base of your dessert pizza, spread generously over a pizza crust. Top it with a bounty of fresh berries or any fruits of your choice. This dessert pizza is not only visually stunning but also offers a decadent and satisfying finish to your culinary adventure.

Cherishing Moments at Your Blendtec Pizza Party

With the help of your Blendtec blender, you can take your pizza party to the next level by creating unique sauces, dough, and toppings that will delight your guests. The versatility of the Blendtec makes it a valuable addition to your culinary arsenal, allowing you to blend up a memorable and delicious pizza party that everyone will enjoy.
