    pizza dough doesn't need any sugar except to activate the yeast and even thats not absolutely necessary.

    Sugar is sugar, but since when do you put sugar in pizza dough?

      Late reply- but to activate the yeast (it works as food for the yeast)

    Of course it will work - powdered sugar is JUST granulated sugar that has been powdered and maybe a wee bit of cornstarch. Use exactly like you would granulated sugar for a pizza dough.

    Sugar is not needed in pizza dough.

    But if you must...use a bit of honey not powdered sugar. Although you could if you have to the only difference is powdered sugar has a bit of cornstarch that will not inhibit the dough from rising. There is not enough of it.

    To answer your question about the Brown sugar. Yes you can use that and would actually have more flavor with the molasses. But again you do not need sugar for pizza dough.

    No. The sugar helps the dough. Powdered sugar doesn't have the same properties

      "Powdered sugar doesn't have the same properties" WRONG of course it has the same properties just extra fine grind and minute amount of corn starch that is not a problem for dough it is the sucrose that help the yeast bloom more quickly - sugar does nothing more or less in pizza dough.
