16 January 2019

Hello and thank you reading my blog at Beyond Primary Care and trying the BPC Good Eats recipes. This featured recipe is a Pizza Dough. These recipes are my attempt, in a way, to bridge that Doctor’s adage of “Eat Better & Exercise More.” In this post, I will showcase a healthy meal made on a budget, my pictures are pretty decent, and that is how I got into this food endeavor.

Pizza Dough
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Original Recipe

Ingredients
3 cups bread flour
1 (.25 oz) package active dry yeast
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
3 tablespoons honey, divided
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup unbleached flour (for rolling)

Instructions
1) Microwave water in measuring cup to 110 degrees F/ 45 degree C, time varies on microwave.
2) Stir sugar into warm water, then sprinkle yeast on top but do NOT stir. Allow to sit untouched for 10 minutes.
3) While waiting, sift bread flour, garlic powder, salt, and onion powder into mixer bowl. Add 1 tablespoon honey, basil, oregano directly to bowl.
4) Once yeast/water mixture has rested 10 minutes, turn mixer to slow and add water/yeast mixture slowly. This is a little bit of an art, add to quickly or too much and your dough will be soggy and clump. Add too little and your dough will be too dry.
5) Continue mixing until dough is elastic and smooth, about 10 minutes, for last 2 minutes turn mixer to faster speed.

6) Turn mixer off, let dough sit for a minimum 30 minutes before using. If longer times are allowed, refrigerate. Ideal is 4 hours to overnight. If refrigerating, take out and allow 30 minutes to return to room temperature before rolling.
7) When ready, preheat oven to 425F.
8) Once dough has rested, spread flour over clean counter space. Place dough on counter, use rolling pin spreading and flipping dough until desired consistency. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before transferring to pizza stone or pan.
9) Place cornmeal liberally on stone or pan before transfer pizza dough. Trim to desired length (use extra dough and re-roll for pizza sticks or a smaller pizza).
10) Crimp edges of pizza with hands. Use fork and poke multiple spots at pizza dough for aeration.
11) Bake pizza crust alone for 3-4 minutes. Take pizza dough out of oven, use remainder of honey and brush ends of pizza to create flavorful crust.
12) The pizza crust is all done, top per your favorite recipe!
