Week 43: Recipes


1 cup warm water
2 ¼ teaspoons dry yeast
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups bread flour
In a large mixing bowl, preferably that of a stand mixer, stir yeast and honey into warm water. Sit for 5-10 minutes or until bubbles form and mixture starts to foam. This tells you that the yeast is alive and kicking. Pour in salt, oil and half of the flour and mix. Once that flour is mixed in, add the remaining flour bit by bit until you get the pizza dough to the consistency you want – slightly tacky, but when you touch it it doesn’t stick to your hands. Once you reach this stage, turn the mixer on high and knead for 6 minutes. Don’t stop earlier than 6 minutes. The bowl should be clean and the dough smooth. Cover bowl in plastic wrap and sit for 1-2 hours in a warm place to let the dough rise.
Dough makes two 12 inch pizzas. Add the toppings that you desire.
