Let it rise and your good to go.
30 minutes for Pizza dough? I make my pizza dough by hand and mix until I can't move the spoon through the dough any more, then turn it out on a floured surface and knead until all the flour is incorporated and about 5 minutes more.
When doing bread in my KA mixer, I knead with the spiral hook for about the same as you, then I still do a few folds by hand to "feel" the dough.
