Pizza Dough

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Yesterday, we had the pleasure to experience 60 degree weather.  I know… 60 degrees isn’t “Summer climate”, but for us Marylander’s its close enough. Winter has been lingering for WAY too long!

Any-who, I woke up early and felt sooo energized. I went for a 3 mile run (I think I may have overdressed because towards the middle of my run I was literally sweating bullets) did some housework, took my doggie to the field to play catch…yup I was living it up. It’s amazing what a bit of Vitamin D can do to the soul.

I was feeling extremely happy and decided to make some homemade pizza dough for later on this week.  It’s amazing five years ago if you asked me to make homemade dough, I would seriously look at you and say your crazy. I always thought making any kind of ” dough” was an impossibility.  As you can see, years later I  faced my fear.

This recipe calls for a handful of ingredients, which makes life easier and less time consuming.

Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 2-10in pizzas
Ingredients
  • ¼ oz Active Dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cups of unbleached all purpose flour (1 TBS to flour surface)
  • 1½ TBS of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (1/2 tsp extra for oiling bowl)
Directions
  1. In a large mixing bowl (I used my stand up Kitchen Maid mixer with my dough attachment), add yeast and water. Whisk until frothy. Let mixture sit for about 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile oil a separate bowl using extra ½ tsp of olive oil.
  3. Add sugar, salt, and flour. Mix for about 2 minutes, add oil slowly. Mix (or you can knead by hand) for about 5 minutes or until dough is smooth.
  4. Move dough to the oiled bowl,cover, and allow to rise for about an hour. (The dough should double in size)
  5. Once the hour mark is up, check the dough.
  6. If you are planning to use your dough in the next couple of days you can store in an airtight container and place in the fridge.
  7. If you plan on making the pizza, divide dough in two roll, out on floured surface (make sure you sprinkle extra flour on the surface your rolling your dough!!).
  8. *Note dough can be placed in the freezer and stored for about 1 month, make sure you thaw before using*
