You’ve got the oven, the peel, the mixer and the will. But do you have a go-to, perfect dough recipe? If not, here’s a good one, and if you do, chuck it and use this one! Is that stepping over the line?
Quick Step-By-Step Pizza Dough
This recipe can offer you a ready to bake ball of pizza dough in 20 minutes! Let's do this!
In a small bowl, mix water and sugar until sugar has dissolved (start with hot water then by the time the sugar has dissolved, the water should be the perfect temperature of around 110 to 115˚F).
Stir in the yeast. Let stand until frothy/foamy, which is about 10 minutes
Meanwhile, in a large bowl or BOSCH MIXER with the dough hook attached, mix the flour and salt together (or do it manually if you're just making a single batch of dough).
Add yeast mixture and the oil to the flour mixture.
Mix well by hand (or mixer).
Knead dough for 2 to 3 minutes until it is smooth and elastic, adding a little flour if it's sticky.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. It's now ready to divide in two, stretch out and make a couple of pies!
This recipe will make about 2 - 12" pizzas.
