First, the dough. I use my bread machine to make a yeast dough.
1 Cup plus 2 TBS water
2 TBS Olive Oil
3 Cups of Flour
2 TBS Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 1/4 tsp yeast (or one packet)
Put all these things in the machine and make dough. Now, I think there are a zillion ways to change up the dough. Add cornmeal. Add flax seed. Replace one cup of white flour with whole wheat. Use honey instead of sugar. Add herbs like oregano, basil, thyme. Add garlic, fresh or powdered. Add Parmesan cheese. The list goes on....
Once your dough is done - roll it out, or just push with your fingers, on a cookie sheet, or pizza stone. I prefer a stone.
I have no idea why these last two are blurry.
Add your toppings.
Now let's talk cheese. Have you ever made pizza or lasagna and the shredded cheese doesn't really melt, and still looks like shredded cheese? That's because of the 'anti-caking' extras they add to shredded cheese. The answer. Block cheese. Now you can totally shred it at home, if you prefer.
Yum. Thanks for reading!
