Homemade pizza that is. I’ve been wanting to make homemade pizza for so long! We planned a pizza night with some friends of ours in early March. Stuff came up, such is life, and we couldn’t make it work out until last weekend. So, we decided on who was going to bring what, meet up and went at it! We all agreed that the pizza turned out great and we will definitly be going back to the pizza dough and pizza sauce recipes we used again. Doing this with another couple also worked well so one of us didn’t have to prepare all the ingredients.
Both the recipes came from Melanie at My Kitchen Cafe. She says this is her tried and true recipe for slow-rise pizza dough. She also has another one on her site for a quick dough that doesn’t need time to rest overnight. Thanks for the awesome recipes Melanie!
(Recipe from: My Kitchen Cafe)
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1 1/3 cup water
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt.
24 hours before making the pizza, throw the above ingredients together to a desired consistency (still soft but not too sticky), place it in a greased bowl, cover with suran wrap and put it in the fridge. Take the dough out 2-3 hours before making the pizza to let the dough come to room temp and relax.
cheese, it’s your pizza, make it how you like it and slide the stone back in the oven. (We used a floured pizza paddle for the first pizza, it did not slide easily off the paddle when trying to get the pizza on the stone so this is the way we did it for the second, which seemed to work good!)
