Homemade Pizza
Homemade Pizza
  • 2 Tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 6 teaspoons of salt (You may prefer less salt)
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cups white flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ - 1 cup of white flour
  1. Warm water in microwave for 1 minute, and then combine with yeast in a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the last one, and mix with the paddle attachment until the dough starts to pull away from the bowl. Using the dough hook and the additional flour, knead for 5 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into four sections, and shape each section into a ball. Shaping into a ball helps with rolling out mostly circular pizzas.
  3. Flour a surface, and roll out one ball. Put that onto a greased cookie sheet that has been dusted somewhat generously with corn meal. Roll out the rest of the balls accordingly. If you don't have four cookie sheets like moi, you can let the last two balls sit and then roll them out during the last five minutes of baking.
  4. Wipe olive oil lightly on the rolled out dough. Add your sauce of choice. Make sure that it is thick enough to hold up in the oven. Otherwise it will disappear into the dough.
  5. Sprinkle with toppings of choice.
  6. Bake at 450 degrees for about 17 to 20 minutes. Keep an eye on the pizza for the last few minutes since your oven may be cooler or warmer than mine.
