I make a lot of pizza. I am always trying new recipes. I have found many that I like but none as easy as this one. This recipe has been all over the internet for a while but I just recently got around to trying it. It is great!
Mix 7 1/2 cups of flour with 1/2 tsp. of rapid rise yeast, 4 tsp. salt and 3 cups of water. Mix this thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise on the counter overnight.
Break off pieces and use it as needed. It will last for 4 or 5 days in the fridge. I keep it in a ziplock bag.
Your puppy will adore the crust.
I make 2 at a time since they are so good when they are fresh out of the oven. Just break off pieces of the dough, sprinkle it with a bit of flour and shape it however you wish.
I have always made pizza sauce and loaded lots of things on top of my pizza. My new pizza is simpler and so much healthier. I buy San Marzano crushed tomatoes. This is all I use for the sauce. I slice fresh mozzarella into thin slices and lay them on top. I then sprinkle a bit of oregano or Italian seasonings and a bit of parmesan cheese. This bakes on a pizza stone in a 450 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown. As soon as they come out of the oven, I sprinkle them with fresh basil leaves. I let them sit on a cutting board for about 15 minutes before cutting. These taste exactly like the pizzas you get in Italy.
