Two Easy Pizza Dough Recipes

by admin

Finally I was able to mange it all with some really great, simple and easy recipes. I will be sharing two of my favorite pizza dough recipes. Both are easy to make are absolutely great. The recipes are:

1.Basic Pizza Dough Recipe:
-2 packages dry yeast
-1 1/2 cup lukewarm water
-4 cups flour
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon sugar
-1 tablespoon olive oil

Dissolve yeast in water and set it aside for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then combine the flour, salt, sugar and oil in a bowl making a well in the center. When water/yeast mixture is bubbly, pour into center of well. Start kneading the dough, bringing flour toward center of bowl. Gradually increase your kneading motion.
If dough feels dry, add a little more water; if it feels sticky, add more flour. Knead vigorously until dough is smooth and elastic. Roll into ball and cover with a damp cloth. Let rest for about 20 minutes in a warm place. Beat dough with your palm to expel gas formed while fermenting. Roll dough again into ball and place in a greased bowl. Baste with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator.
When ready to use, place dough on floured counter top or table. Flatten the dough with your hands, working from center out (a rolling pin may do also). Push dough evenly onto greased cookie sheet or pizza pan, forming a 12-inch circle with edges thicker than middle. Apply your favorite topping in desired amounts. Bake in hot oven (475 to 500 degrees) until golden brown.

2.Cornmeal Pizza Crust Recipe:
-1 cup warm water
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – divided
-1 cup cornmeal
-1 tablespoon cornmeal -divided
-2 tablespoons sugar or honey
-2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Measure carefully and place all ingredients, except the 1 tablespoon of cornmeal, in bread machine pan. Program basic dough cycle setting and press start. Remove dough from bread machine pan and let rest for 2 to 3 minutes.
Pat and gently stretch dough into 14- to 15-inch circle. Spray a 14-inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon cornmeal. Press dough into pan.
Then follow with topping and baking directions for individual recipes. 1 14-inch crust makes 8 servings.

I use these two easy pizza dough recipes a lot when making my own pizzas. Now you can too. Enjoy!
