Pizza dough

Categories: Breads

Ingredients:

Directions:

Mix all of the dry ingredients first, then add the water. It will appear to be too dry. Do not add water. Keep working the dough until it is smooth. (This requires a little faith but it really works). Let the dough rise once (approx 1 hour). Punch it down and knead again. At this point you may choose to freeze some of the dough. If you do freeze it, be sure to wrap it well and freeze it quickly. With either fresh or thawed dough, let the dough rise a second time. After it has risen, punch it down and use it for your pizza. The dough will rise a little while you put the rest of your pizza toppings on it. Then bake as appropriate for pizza thickness and toppings. NOTES: * Simple pizza dough -- I don't remember where I learned this simple recipe for pizza dough. It makes enough dough for two 12 x 18 pan pizzas. I like it because it is so easy to memorize and it makes good pizzas. Of course, it is not quite as easy to memorize in its metric rendering. Yield: * I have tried variations like whole wheat, and just about any flour combination that works for bread works for pizza dough. : Difficulty: easy. : Time: 20 minutes preparation, 2 hours rising. : Precision: measure the ingredients. : R Horn : Infinet, Inc.
