Pizza Dough Recipe for Pizza Cones

If you’re a pizza lover (who isn’t?) then you’re going to love this! You might not have heard about pizza cones – a fun new way to eat pizza and enjoy more toppings than a traditional ‘slice’. Pizza Cones are great fun for a family pizza night or parties! This recipe creates a more firm dough that holds up while baking. All you need is a pizza cone set, and this dough recipe to get started!


  • 2 C. (plus 2 Tbsp.) all-purpose flour
  • ½ C. (plus 2 Tbsp.) warm water (80°F)
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. instant yeast


  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt and instant yeast in mixing bowl. Add water and canola oil. Using the dough hook of an electric mixer, mix on low speed for 1-2 minutes, or until dough comes together. Increase speed to medium-high and continue to mix for another 4-6 minutes, or until the dough is elastic (approximately 8-10 minutes by hand).
  2. Apply a thin coat of oil to the dough’s exterior. Place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 45-60 minutes.
  3. Use a rolling pin to roll dough to approximately 1/8” thickness. Press the dough cutter into the rolled dough. Use your finger to apply a thin coat of water or egg wash to the edge of the dough. Fold dough over so the edges meet and form a cone. Run the docker over the edge of the seam to close; repeat on other side of seam. Let the cone rest on the cutting board for 10-15 minutes. Repeat process for remaining cones.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. After dough has rested on the cutting board for 10-15 minutes, slip dough over the cone mould and bake for 6-7 minutes, or until outer crust is just beginning to brown. Remove cones from oven and cool for 2 minutes. Remove cone from mould and place into the pizza cone holder. Fill pizza cone as desired and return to the oven for another 8 minutes, or until fillings are warm and bubbling. Let pizza cone rest a few minutes before eating.

NOTE: Pizza cone ingredients will settle while baking in oven. For a fuller pizza cone, stuff ingredients to the brim of the cone before baking.
