How to Make Pizza Dough
If you have ever eaten made from scratch pizza dough, you know that it has a special flavor and texture that is very different from store-bought. That does not mean that there is not some great store-bought doughs, but from scratch is just something special. Making your own dough is not difficult, and here are some of the steps that are going to work for you.
2- 2 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour or bread flour.
1 packet of instant yeast
1 and ½ teaspoon of flour
¾ teaspoon of salt
1/8-1/4 tsp of garlic powder
2 tablespoons of olive oil
¾ cup of warm water
1. Combine one cup of flour along with the yeast, sugar, garlic and salt into the bowl. Mix well.
2. Add the olive oil and water to the bowl and mix gently.
3. Add another cup of flour and mix well. You want the dough to be an elastic ball that pulls away from the sides of the bowl that you are using.
4. Add some olive oil to a clean bowl and spread it around. You then want to transfer your dough to the oiled bowl and roll it around so that it gets evenly coated.
5. Cover with plastic wrap and allow it to sit for half an hour or until it doubles in size.
6. Take the dough out after rising and then deflate it.
7. Put the dough on the pizza pan and then stretch the dough gently to fit the pan. You then need to poke holes in the dough to keep it from bubbling up while cooking.
8. Add your toppings and then cook your pizza until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
