making pizza dough


Welcome to Making Mondays, dear Readers! 


Today's Making Monday recipe is Pizza Dough. This is a simple pizza dough and does have olive oil in it. I'll do a recipe in the future that is oil free, but the first one is a good pizza dough recipe that is reliable.

You can make this in a food processor. Use a plastic blade (dough blade) to preserve the gluten strands and process until the dough comes together into a ball, a few minutes. Then add to a container to rise.

You can use a bread maker. Use the Pasta Cycle if you have one, or the dough cycle, as is and rise in the pan as per cycle - or add it to a container to rise.

You can do this in a stand mixer. Knead until a dough forms and then knead on medium for a few minutes to develop the gluten.

You can do this by hand. Form into a ball and knead for a few minutes before proofing in a container.

Use a container that the dough can double in and one that has a lid. You can also rise in the fridge, but then your container should have enough room to triple the dough, if overnight.

That's it. Use as is, or if risen in the fridge, allow to come to room temperature.

Below is the step by step.

Enjoy!
