So, I haven’t talked about pizza for awhile but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been eating it. We made a huge Christmas Eve Pizza Feast.
I tried a new method of having one piece in each hand and alternating bites from 2 different types of pizza. Try it.
My Mother-In-Laws amazing pizza dough recipe: (Makes 3 pizzas) P.S. It is super quick too.
Put the pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500 degrees.
In a mixer bowl put:
3.5 cups hot tap water
3.5 cups bread flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tbs instant yeast
Mix until moistened, cover, let “sponge” for 8 minutes.
Then, add 1 T. salt and remaining bread flour (4-6 C). From the time you start the mixer and start adding flour until desired consistency is reached, let the mixer knead for a total of 8 minutes.
Remove dough from mixer bowl and pinch off three equal portions.
Spread cornmeal on one of the pizza peels. Roll out the dough, alwayys pushing from the center towards the outside. While rolling the dough, occasionally “slide and shake” the dough to make sure it isn’t sticking to the peel. If it sticks, lift the dough and spread more corn meal under it.
With a pastry brush, brush the pizza dough with garlic, olive oil and garlic salt.
Total baking time is 7 minutes!!! Pop any bubbles in the dough with a sharp knife at about 3.5 minutes, put on your toppings and finish cooking.
Pesto, mozarella, veggies and the avocado was the best part.
Thai chicken: Peanut sauce, carrots, white bean sprouts, cilantro, chicken, roasted peanuts.
BBQ Chicken with avocado and red onion. I forgot what the other half was sorry. Memory loss at the age of 24…it happens.
My creation and personal fave: Pesto, mozzarella, tomato’s, chicken and cilantro.
Of course we had to make a dessert pizza! Butter, cinnamon sugar, pears and white chocolate chips. Random works when all of the ingredients are amazing.
Where and what was the best pizza you have ever had?
– I really might have to say this dough recipe and these combinations are my absolutely favorite ever. I will go to Italy one day and eat pizza for ever meal…along with gelato that is.
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
-Salad and oatmeal squares. Normal I know.
