Crest Cottage Creations

Food, Family, and Fun in our little cottage…



Another staple I like to make is pizza dough.  My stand mixer came with an awesome recipe, and although it is with white flour, I have not yet had time to tweak it.  I tried just replacing some of the white flour with wheat, but that resulted in a tough dough that didn’t mix well.  When I do perfect the whole wheat recipe, I will post it here.  
This recipe starts by letting 1 1/4 t yeast dissolve in 1 cup of water in a warm mixer bowl and then adding in 2 t olive oil.
2.5 cups of flour, 1 t sea salt go in next…
…and the whole thing is mixed together. 
I added flour as needed to get the dough to form a dough ball.
While the dough is being mixed, pour some olive oil into a bowl.
Add the dough ball and coat the dough and the bowl with said olive oil.  Cover it and let it rise.  I use a dish cloth and let it rise in the oven.  Our house hovers around 63*F during the day, so the oven is a better bet. 
Then comes the fun part!  Roll it out…
…decorate it (home made tomato sauce, oregano, and fresh mozarella balls)…
… and bake it (450 for 15 minutes)!
