Have you ever made homemade pizza?
I mean real homemade pizza right down to the pizza dough?
No, me either until a few nights ago.
WOW, what a difference fresh dough makes! I will NEVER buy
prepackaged dough again. It’s SUPER easy!!
The hardest part is waiting for the dough to rise.
The recipe I found was a little intimidating at first because it calls for a
bread machine & of course I don’t own one. Reading through the comments,
I’m not the only one without a bread machine. Luckily for me a couple pioneers tried
making this dough by hand or with their mixer & bread hook.
The bread hook did all the work. No bread machine or kneading involved.
I chose 1 really large pizza, the size of my pizza pan & still had a little left over.
Before adding toppings, use a fork to poke little holes around the dough to keep from bubbling.
1 cup water
3 cups bread flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. yeast
Place all ingredients in your kitchen-aid mixer, attach bread hook.
Turn on low until dough is pliable & elastic, rather than sticky.
Let rise for about 60-70 minutes. Dough should double in size.
