It's hot today in our area. Thank God it wasn't that humid so I can to start on my Spring to Fall furniture project. I have four furniture line up that I need to work on. Today I was working with the old sewing machine table.
My husband and I love pizza. So, I was trying to make my own pizza dough. I found this recipe by Bobby Flay. I choose this one because it is easy enough for me. It turned out delicious and we love it. We have this recipe a couple of times already. Making your own pizza it wasn't that hard at all. Also, more healthier too. I made BBQ chicken pizza with bbq sauce, chicken, asparagus and cheese. The other one I tried with chicken, black bean, corn, pepper, and cheese.
- 3 1/2 to 4 cups bread flour, plus more for rolling (Chef's Note: Using bread flour will give you a much crisper crust. If you can't find bread flour, you can substitute it with all-purpose flour which will give you a chewier crust.)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 envelope instant dry yeast
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 cups water, 110 degrees F
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 2 teaspoons
DirectionsCombine the bread flour, sugar, yeast and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and combine. 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 sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together in a solid ball. If the dough is too dry, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead into a smooth, firm ball.
Grease a large bowl with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, add the dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and 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 each with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let them rest for 10 minutes.
