The Best Pizza Dough Ever!!!

18 Aug

Last night for dinner we made homemade pizza again….yes again! We tried out a recipe for homemade dough, it was the best I have ever had. This recipe makes enough dough for two 14″ thin style pizza crusts. Next time i make it I am going to make 1 and a half batches because we do like our crust a little thicker then this was. It has great flavor and was super easy to make. So here ya go if you would like to give it a try.

1 1/2 cups warm water

2 packs of active dry yeast (I use Red Star Brand)

1 tablespoon honey

3 tablespoons of olive oil

4 cups of flour

2 teaspoons salt

In a large mixing bowl, start with your warm water and add your yeast and honey, allow to proof until your yeast resembles a creamy foam. Next add your olive oil and stir it in. Then add your flour a cup at a time, (add your salt into the mix after 2 cups of flour) mixing well after each cup. After your dough forms knead it in your mixer for 10 minutes. Take it out of mixer and knead 10 times by hand and
place in a well oiled bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise for about 10 minutes.

Split your dough in half and place on 2 oiled 14″ pizza pans, work it to the edges just like you would any other dough and add the sauce and toppings of your choice. Oven temps vary but we baked ours on about 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Enjoy!
