Pizza Dough Recipe.
This one is pretty simple although it involves yeast. So, if you don't have any in your cupboard - you will have to make a run to the store.
- 3 1/2 to 4 cups of flour, plus more for rolling. Using bread flour will give you a crispier crust, you can substitute with all-purpose flour, which will give you a chewier crust. I used both.
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 envelope of instant dry yeast
- 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
- 1 1/2 cups of water, 110 degrees F
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
Combine the bread; flour, sugar, yeast and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. While the mixer is running, add the water and 2 tablespoons of the oil and beat until the dough forms into a ball. If the dough is still sticky, add additional flour (1 tablespoon at a time), until the dough comes together. If the dough is too dry, add additional water (1 tablespoon at a time). Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Lightly grease a large bowl with olive oil, add the dough, and cover it with a towel. Put it in a warm area to let it double in size (about 1 hour). Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide it into 2 equal pieces. Cover them each with a towel once again and let them rest for 10 minutes.
I ended up freezing the other half of the dough. We used ours to make calzones.
