I have always been a bit of a carb lover but a couple summers ago I got a pizza stone as a gift and I became a full on pizza addict. There is nothing better then fresh pizza right out of the over and a pizza stone is a definite game changer. If you like that crispy bottom typically associated with thin crust gourmet pizzas from restaurants I definitely recommend you picking up a stone. I have even gone as far as having pizza parties which I find is quiet an interactive way to host and entertain guests. Anyways what inspired this post was that I recently came across this recipe for pizza dough by Matt Rotenberg and tried it out this past weekend and loved so much I had to share! It was so easy and really quiet delicious it would be selfish of me to keep it all to myself - so enjoy!
Makes about 3-4 Personal Sized Pizzas
2.5 Cups of Flour
1 Pack of Fleischmann's Quick Rise Instant Yeast
1/4 TSP of Salt
1 Cup of Lukewarm Water
2 TBS of Olive Oil
1 TBSP of honey
In a bowl mix flour, salt and yeast together with fork.
Add lukewarm water, olive oil, and honey into bowl and continue to mix with fork until dough starts to form,
Sprinkle flour on counter and kneed dough. If the dough is sticky sprinkle with flour and continue to kneed until it becomes smooth.
Place ready dough in a bowl, drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top to help keep the dough moist and cover with a cloth. Let it raise for 10 minutes before moving it to the fridge.
TIP: Prepare dough within 2 hours of use otherwise it will continue to rise!
