Take out not an option

I got in from Waco late last night.  Both of us wanted pizza, but I didn't want to see the inside a the car again.  Found a Giada recipe for dough and while the small was coming to temp we made the dough, the sauce,  grated the cheeses and dried out the tomatoes.  The crust was tasty, a little denser than my other recipes but for a late nite cook, turned out pretty good.

    Looks good, Joan. I still have never made my own dough. I have a Kitchen Aid but its mostly for decoration. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • Travis, put that decoration to work.  Home made doughs are pretty tasty and there are a bucket load of recipes on the net.

    Pizza Dough

    Bon Appétit  | March 2007

    by Giada DeLaurentiis

    Ingredients

             3/4 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)

             1 envelope active dry yeast

     

             2 cups (or more) all purpose flour

             1 teaspoon sugar

             3/4 teaspoon salt

             3 tablespoons olive oil

     

     

    Pour 3/4 cup warm water into small bowl; stir in yeast. Let stand until yeast dissolves, about 5 minutes.

    Brush large bowl lightly with olive oil. Mix 2 cups flour, sugar, and salt in processor. Add yeast mixture and 3 tablespoons oil; process until dough forms a sticky ball. Transfer to lightly floured surface. KNEAD dough until smooth, adding more flour by tablespoonfuls if dough is very sticky, about 1 minute. Transfer to prepared bowl; turn dough in bowl to coat with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let dough rise in warm draft-free area until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. PUNCH down dough. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. ROLL out dough according to recipe instructions. (Start in center of dough, working outward toward edges but not rolling over them.)

    I've tried homemade crust a half a dozen times now. All about a 5 on a 10. Going to keep trying.
    When in doubt add more pepper.
