Pizza Dough

Pizza Dough

I had the great joy of making pizzas at the farm for the Summer Solstice Celebration. Many asked for the dough recipe, so here it is. Enjoy!

Makes one 12-14 inch pizza

2/3 cups lukewarm water
1 teaspoon instant or Rapid rise yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon sea salt

1. Stir water, yeast, and sugar in a large bowl; let stand until yeast has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour and salt until the dough begins to come together.
2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat with the oil.
3. Cover the dough with a clean moist warm kitchen towel; set aside in a warm, draft-free place until the dough has nearly doubled in size, about 1 hour.
4. Roll out on a lightly floured surface, put on a pizza pan and add your favorite toppings. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until the dough begins to brown and the cheese (if using) is bubbly.
