Easy peasy homemade pizza dough.
NOTE: Dough needs time to rise and rest so plan ahead!
Put the water into a small bowl. Add yeast and sugar into the water. Let it rest 5-10 minutes, or until foamy. If yeast does not foam check water temperature and start over, making sure the yeast is not expired.
Place flour and salt in medium bowl. Combine with a fork and make a well in the center of the flour. Pour yeast mixture into flour. Drizzle 1/4 cup of olive oil into flour mixture.
Use a fork to pull the dry ingredients into the wet. Mix in the bowl until mostly combined. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until all ingredients are well combined.
Place 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large bowl. Place dough in bowl and turn to coat it with olive oil. Cover dough with a clean towel and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour. Dough is ready when it’s doubled in size and you can see an indent with you press on it with your finger.
Knead dough until it deflates and becomes a smooth ball. Cut dough in half and roll each half into a ball. Cover with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Shape each piece of dough into about a 10″ circle. Place dough on a pizza stone or pan and top with sauce and favorite pizza toppings.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
Recipe makes two 10″ sized pizzas.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
Quinoa, Black Bean and Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers
You can use either chicken or pork in this recipe. It’s so good my hubby always has to go back for more. The kids eat it up too!
