A New Recipe

I was going to post about a recipe so here it is! It is really nice and thin... almost too thin!

Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1
    Mix a little sugar into the warm water.
  2. 2
    Sprinkle yeast on top.
  3. 3
    Wait for 10 minutes or until it gets all foamy.
  4. 4
    Pour into a large bowl.
  5. 5
    Add flour, salt, olive oil.
  6. 6
    Combine.
  7. 7
    Knead for 6-8 minutes until you have a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (add a bit more flour if you need to).
  8. 8
    Cover and let rest for 20-30 minutes.
  9. 9
    Lightly grease two 12-inch pizza pans.
  10. 10
    Sprinkle with a little bit of cornmeal.
  11. 11
    Divide dough in half.
  12. 12
    Place each half on a pizza pan and pat it with your fingers until it stretches over the whole pan.
  13. 13
    Try to make it thicker around the edge.
  14. 14
    If desired, pre-bake at 425 F for 10 minutes (I don't always do this).
  15. 15
    Then spread with pizza sauce and use the toppings of your choice.
  16. 16
    Bake at 425 F for 10-20 minutes longer or until bubbly and hot.
  17. 17
    Makes 2 12-inch pizzas.
  18. 18
    If you don't want to use all the dough, you can freeze it.
  19. 19
    Take a portion of dough, form into a ball, rub olive oil over it and place it in a freezer bag (the oil makes it easier to take out of the bag).
  20. 20
    When you want to make a pizza, take dough out of freezer and allow to thaw before using.
