C and Miss F both love pizza chips, they are quite a favorite around here. I decided to make pizza with the same dough recipe and it worked fabulously. I made two pizzas, doubling the recipe, one for C and Miss F (pepperoni) and one from me and my parents (veggie.) I really love making homemade pizza so much more than ordering out, I just wish that I had two ovens so that we could all enjoy pizza at the same time. I usually make the pepperoni first, then I am stuck waiting for my pizza pie.
½ cup warm water
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 ½ teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 ½ cups bread flour
½ cup crushed tomatoes
¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
pepperoni, artichoke, bell pepper, tomatoes, spinach, etc...
In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir together the water, yeast and sugar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, until the mixture begins to get bubbly. Add the salt, oil and half of the flour. Turn on the mixer on low and add remaining flour ¼ cup at a time, until it is all incorporated. Swap out the mixer for the dough hook and knead for 6 minutes. Form into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise for 1 to 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees with a pizza stone inside. Form the dough into a 12 inch circle and place on parchment paper. Spread the crushed tomatoes over the prepared crust, then sprinkle the mozzarella over top. Spread whatever toppings you prefer on top. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Let cool for 2 minutes, then cut with a pizza slicer.
