This pizza dough is terrific to work with. It has a subtly sweet flavor from the honey and goes well with a lot of different sauces and toppings. You can roll the dough out in advance and put it in the freezer for a rainy day.
Seasonality: All Year
Drink Pair: Pilsner
1/2 oz fresh yeast
3/4 cup room temperature water
1 tsp sugar
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 TBS honey
10 oz bread flour
-Dissolve the yeast in water.
-Mix in sugar, olive oil, salt and honey.
-Then combine with the flour to form a dough.
-Rest the dough 10 minutes and then knead it for 10 minutes or until a very smooth ball forms.
-Let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
-Turn the dough and refrigerate for 2 hours.
-Divide the dough in half and roll two 10-12 inch pies. Be careful in this stage not to overwork the dough. This will get the gluten strands to contract and make it hard to stretch the crusts thin.
