Reading the paper one day, I came across this recipe for pizza dough.  These pics are of pepperoni-salami-mushroom and pepperoni-salami-tomato.  I've also made one with alfredo sauce, grilled chicken, and spinach.  I'm really liking experimenting with different toppings, and it costs way less than ordering something fancy from Panago  Wink

Pre-oven


Post-oven


1 1/4 cups lukewarm water
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

Place the water, yeast, sugar, and olive oil in a medium bowl and stir to combine.  Place the flour and salt in a large bowl.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until the dough loosely clumps together.  Transfer the dough, scraping the sides of the bowl if necessary, to a lightly floured surface and knead 6 to 8 minutes.

Place the dough in a deep, lightly oiled bowl, cover and place in a warm, draft-free place.  Let the dough rise and double in size, about 60 minutes.  Punch the dough down and cut into 2 pieces.  Place each piece of dough in a very lightly oiled 12-inch round pizza pan.  Press and carefully spread out the dough until it reaches the very outer edges of the pan.  Sauce and top as desired and bake at 450F for 12-15 minutes or until the pizza is puffed and the crust is golden on the bottom.

Delicious.  I'd say it's probably better than any delivery pizza, except maybe Pizza Hut.

I also rolled the dough in a little cornmeal before spreading it in the pan, so it's got a little bit more texture.

You can also freeze the other half for another time.

Does freezing the dough affect the yeast, or does it turn out like the frozen rolls that you can buy at most grocery stores?

I'm guessing it'll be like other frozen bread doughs.  I haven't frozen it myself since one pizza isn't enough for the 3 of us, but the pizza chef in the article suggested freezing, so it should be okay.
