Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Pizza


Starter:
2 tsp active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Dough:
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup water, room temperature

Toppings:
3/4 cup tomato sauce
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
3 tomatoes, sliced
10 leaves basil
24 slices pepperoni
2 red peppers, roasted
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Recipe Directions for Homemade Pizza

  1. Starter:

  2. Dissolve the yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water and allow it to stand for approximately 5 -10 minutes.

  3. Add the 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, and mix until the flour is absorbed. Cover the starter with a cotton towel and allow it to remain at room temperature for 1 hour.

  4. Dough:

  5. Mix the salt (1 tsp.) with the flour (2 1/4 cup). Add the additional 1 cup of water to the starter. Add the flour/salt mixture, and continue to mix the ingredients to the consistency of a soft dough. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic.

  6. Divide the dough into 2-3 portions. Shape each into a ball. Dust a piece of canvas (untreated, 100% cotton), or a proofing board (1/4 inch thick lumber core plywood works well) with flour. Place the 2-3 portions of dough on the flour dusted surface. Cover with a cotton or linen towel, and allow them to rise until double their original size. This usually takes approximately 1 1/2 - 2 hours.

  7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  8. Fold the edge of each portion of dough toward the center, kneading it gently, while maintaining a round shape. Place each portion onto a floured work surface. Working with each portion individually, roll the dough into a circular shape of about 10-12 inches. Place on pizza stone or baking sheet and prebake for 5 minutes.

  9. Arrange sauce, toppings and cheese on the pizza and return to oven; cook until cheese is melted and toppings are hot.
