Pizza dough

Looking for a simple pizza dough recipe

  • 500g bread Flour
    1tbs Yeast
    16g Salt
    350g Water

    Mix and let sit for 18 Hours in room temp.

    Makes 2 servings

    Crispy bottom, fluffy top. I know most don't use grams, but if you have a kitchen scale it helps. It's a wet dough, but it is worth the extra effort to work.

    Never ever use a rolling pin. Stretch by hand and you will be rewarded. I made some this morning, pics will be posted tomorrow night.

  • This a pic of the last one. No Dagny Girl did not get any. She is a great dog, but not that good.

    Attached is a PDF for the dough recipe I use.  I like that you make it up and leave in the refrigerator to use any time you want for up to 2 weeks.  I also like that it makes an excellent crust

  • Thanks for posting. I am going to try this weekend. 

    I have tried pizza in the past with store bought dough and every time it gets way too smokey. After reading several other posts and watching some YouTube videos I think I know what I am doing wrong.... not waiting long enough, controlling temp with top wheel vent etc. 

    Any other tips you have would be great. I also want to try homemade bread but I want to master the pizza first. 

    Thanks for the help

    I've had good luck with the recipe on the biggreenegg website. @bwendt - As for the smokey taste, have you done a clean burn recently?

    How long do you let the crust rise @cookinbob?
