How to Make Pizza Dough in a Vitamix
You can use your high-powered Vitamix blender to make your baking a lot easier. Not only can you make some really delicious baked goods (you might want to try our easy EMERGENCY Chocolate Blender cupcakes) but you can also use your Vitamix to make pizza or flatbread. Did someone say homemade pizza? Well, we don’t promise you the whole pizza but the dough will be done!
These easy-to-follow 5 step instructions will make the process a breeze!
DON’T FORGET: Follow YOUR specific pizza dough/flatbread recipe ingredients.
Step 1. Add flour, yeast and salt to your Vitamix jar. Use variable speed 4 or 5 and PULSE 2-3 times to combine the ingredients.
*If your Vitamix (5200 or Standard models) doesn’t have a “Pulse” feature, use variable speed 4 and turn it on and off to PULSE.
*If you are using a tall 64 oz Vitamix jar, use a spatula to push ingredients towards the center.
Step 2. Slowly add a bit of hot water at a time (typically 10 to 12 oz) through the lid plug and PULSE. Continue just until a dough ball forms, but you must be CAREFUL not to over-blend.
Step 3. Add flour to work your surface and form the dough into ball.
Step 4. This step is OPTIONAL – some recipes call for it. Add oil such as olive oil and gently knead dough.
Step 5. Place the dough in a covered bowl. Keep the bowl in a warm area to rise for 1-2 hours.
*SHORTCUT! Heat microwave with a cup of water for a minute. Take the cup out and put the bowl of dough inside and let rise for about 45 minutes.
We hope these 5 easy steps will make the process a lot faster so you can sit down and enjoy that amazing pizza or flatbread recipe. Which one is your favorite recipe!? Do you have a SKINNY version? Share with us PLEASE! 😉

I just got a Vitamin 5300 after my friends wouldn’t stop gushing about it. I’m trying to figure out if I can make pizza dough in it without buying a separate blade or container. What do you think?
Hi, Michelle! Jassmine here!
Congratulations on your new Blender!
There is no need to purchase a separate blade or container for the 5300 model to make pizza dough. the 64 oz container should be fine. I would love to hear how your pizza turned out. Would you mind sharing with me how everything turned ou?
Us either! 🙂 Great tip
This sounds like a winner. I’ve never tried it in my vitamix but I have done it in the food processor so should be similar.
Hope to be able to try this soon!
i havent! thats awesome
Love the idea of warming the microwave. I never thought of that.
I can't wait to try it! I have never used my vitamix for dough.
I have not made pizza dough in my blender.
I’ve never tried making pizza dough in a blender, but then again, I don’t have a Vitamix!
I’ve never made pizza dough in the blender. Never thought of it. Might just have to try soon.
