How to Make Homemade Pizza

Step-by-Step

  • 1Add the water,yeast,sugar,oil and salt to bowl,stir well and let stand for 10 min
  • 2Add 5 cups of the flour and mix with the dough hook until mixed well
  • 3Add the remaining flour and mix a few min with dough hook until mixed together
  • 4Put dough into a well oiled deep bowl, cover loosely with a plastic grocery sack and let rise for an hour, this will really rise up..
  • 5Flour your hands really well and Then punch dough down a few minutes and divide in half
  • 6Brush veg oil on botton of your pizza pan/cookie sheet..this makes a really nice crusty botton..
  • 7Stretch the dough out.. you can roll.. and roll and roll it..it just wants to spring back.. I just stretch it.. it will tend to stretch back... let it rest for a few min and come back and stretch out a little more.. give another rest and continue until you have it stretched over the pans... don't worry you aren't going to hurt it..
  • 8now if you use a large cookie sheet it the dough may look thin to you at this time.. but no worry this will rise on the second rise and also in the oven
  • 9after you have your dough in your pan.. brush some veg or olive oil all around the the top and the edges.. make a nice cripsy crust
  • 10Just a note I really encourage adding the veg oil brushed on the top and bottom... you won't have a dried up crust.. just my preferance
  • 11Let rise 45 min to an hour until
  • 12Now your ready to add your favorite pizza sause and toppings
  • 13Bake at 350 until done... after about 1/2 hour i put some foil loosely on top... the top tends to cook faster...than the bottom so this will give your pizza a chance to cook more on the bottom for a crispier crust.. I check every 10 min or so until the botton has a nice golden brown crust.. when ready I take the foil off the top and continue cooking the top
  • 14When I make our pizza sause , I throw a few jars of our canned tomatoes in the food processor to chop up a bit...add some spices and then simmer a few hours until thickend..
  • 15This one can be made ahead of time.. If I want to make a loaf of bread one day.. I'll stretch the other half of dough for a pizza for the next day.. just put in frige before the second rise and take out when ready let rise for 1 hour to and 1 1/2 hour as the pizza is chilled and may take longer
  • 16also freezes well and store in frige well.. Always freeze and refrige BEFORE 2nd RiSE
