Recipes That Require A Lil More Love WHATCHA EATIN!

Best Pizza Ever!

As y’all know I am a homemade kinda cook. After spending way too much on pizza that I didn’t like from restaurants I decided to tackle homemade pizza dough! I have tweaked and merged a few recipes together and voila! Have found the perfect mix.
 
In stand mixer mixing bowl stir together the warm water, sugar & yeast. Attach your dough hook and let stand until the mixture is foamy, about 10 minutes.
 
While the yeast is proofing, combine flour, and salt in a separate mixing bowl.
 
Once the yeast is foamy, add the flour/salt mixture & olive oil to the bowl and turn on mixer to about speed 3 until dough forms a ball and cleans sides of mixing bowl. Takes about 10 minutes or so for mine to form.

Once you have a dough ball, continue to knead for about another 4 minutes. Dough should be smooth & spring back when touched. If too wet add a small amount of flour until smooth. If too dry add a small amount of water until smooth.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in volume, at least an hour.

Now the fun part! I separate dough and  roll out to the size of my pizza pan. I normally have enough to either make Coop a small personal pizza or I make garlic knots.

Preheat your oven to 425˚ 

Now top with your favorite sauce! I haven’t made a homemade yet but give me time. I do like Classico’s Pizza Sauce and is my go to!

Now the cheese! I use a blend of fresh Parmigiana (light because it is a strong cheese) & Mozzarella. Keep in mind the more cheese the greasier your pizza will be. Once I have a nice layer of cheese it is time for Pepperoni, my family’s favorite so I make sure I have extra!

Sprinkle a little more cheese on top!

I happened to have some pineapple and added it too!

The toppings are an endless mix so add whatever your family enjoys!

Bake pizza for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through. I normally end up around 18 minutes because of the altitude. For an even crispier bottom crust, slide the pizza directly onto the oven rack for the last two minutes of baking time. Hope y’all enjoy!
