    KitchenAid KCO253CU Easy Artisan Pizza Recipe

    Easy Artisan Pizza

    Makes 6-8 servings

    By KitchenAid


    For the crust

    • 2 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast (or 1 packet)
    • 3/4 cup hot tap water (around 105-115˚F)
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)

    For the Indonesian barbecue chicken pizza

    • 1 cup of Indonesian barbecue chicken
    • 8 ounces shredded gouda cheese
    • 1 medium-sized yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 medium-sized red onion, thinly sliced
    • Chopped cilantro, for garnish


    For the crust

    Preheat your KitchenAid Convection Countertop Oven to 400˚F. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to your nonstick multipurpose pan. Set aside.

    Fill a small bowl with warm tap water. Let sit for 2-3 minutes to warm up the bowl, then discard water. Add 3/4 hot tap water (around 105-115˚F), sugar and yeast to the small sized bowl. Stir until the yeast is mostly dissolved (it’s okay if mixture is a little lumpy). Allow to sit for 5 minutes, until mixture starts to bubble and foam (the bubbling and foaming means the yeast has been activated).

    While the yeast is activating, combine the flour and salt in a medium sized bowl. Once the yeast is activated, add it to the flour mixture along with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Use a wooden spoon or sturdy spatula to stir until all flour is incorporated.

    Sprinkle a work surface with a small amount of flour. Transfer the dough to the floured surface and knead for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until a nice smooth ball forms. Dust dough with flour and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes, leaving it to almost double in size.

    Remove the towel and sprinkle your work surface lightly with more flour. Flatten the dough slightly and, working with your fingers, dimple and push it into a larger circle as you go, until it’s approximately the size of your nonstick multipurpose pan. If it’s hard to push, let it rest for a minute, as this will help the elastic fibers in the dough to relax.

    Place the dough on your prepared nonstick multipurpose pan. Push the dough with your fingers to cover the bottom and slightly up the sides of the pan to create a small rim.

    Top with your favorite base, cheese and topping (two pizza recipes below) and bake in your KitchenAid® Convection Digital Countertop Oven until golden, about 12-15 minutes.

    Cover dough with 1 cup of Indonesian Barbecue Chicken. Sprinkle with gouda cheese. Top with thinly sliced bell peppers and red onion. Bake in your preheated KitchenAid® Convection Digital Countertop Oven for 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown. After baking, garnish pizza with chopped fresh cilantro.

    Should Serve You Well Review by

    Toaster ovens this size tend to be smaller inside. Not this one with its large capacity. This one holds a lot and has 2 racks providing multiple positions if you want to avoid your main oven on occasion. I prefer no micro-electronics for a toaster oven, so the dial functions are simple and firm. I found the timer and temperature settings quite accurate enough as measured. It is fast to heating temp and quiet. KitchenAid Customer Service was exceptional responding to a technical concern. Materials and construction exceed expectations at this price point. A great performer and deal from the manufacturer and Everything Kitchens. (Posted on 1/30/19)
