Pizza Dough (Makes 2 Crusts)
We like making use of the wood fired oven at the Farm, and Pizza is a true favorite. After trying a variety of dough recipes we like this one the best, simple, trustworthy and really delicious.
Stir 1 Teaspoon of Sugar into 1 Cup of Warm Water, add 1 Tablespoon of Yeast and stir.
While that sits, put 3 Cups of Flour (I like to use 3/4 bread flour and 1/4 whole wheat for this recipe) and 1 Teaspoon of Salt into the Food Processer. Pulse to stir.
With the Processor Running, slowly pour in the yeast mixture, and if needed, add a little more water until it all pulls together into a ball of fairly soft (not too soft) dough.
Put 1 Tablespoon of olive oil into a bowl, roll the dough in the Olive oil to coat. Cover and wait until doubled in bulk. In a warm kitchen that may happen in 40 minutes or so. Divide the dough into two balls, place in separate bowls, cover and let rise again. When they have doubled, you can roll them into circles for pizza on a floured surface (I use whole wheat for the floured surface).
Now for the fun of adding your gardens freshest ingredients, basils, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and some local cheese. Bake on a stone, or cookie sheet in a hot oven until done!
