Pizza Chips

Pizza Chips
Years ago (and I mean YEARS,) I would meet my friends Jess and Shannon at a place in Clear Lake called Boondoggles. On Thursday nights they would serve crab legs (yum!) and we would gorge ourselves silly. To start every meal there, we always ordered pizza chips, served with marinara AND ranch dressing for dipping. Only in Texas do you find people mixing marinara sauce with ranch dressing.   I have been meaning to try and re-create it at home for YEARS.  I saw this recipe from Lauren's Latest on Pinterest and I knew it would be a winner.  The three of us polished off nearly the entire plate of pizza chips.  C was happy because it was quite cheesy and Miss F couldn't get enough. 
Pizza Chips

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

2 tablespoons salted butter
1 clove garlic, finely minced
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup grated mozzarella cheese

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. Mix together the butter and garlic in a small bowl and set aside. Form the dough into a 12 inch circle and place on parchment paper. Melt the butter with the garlic, then brush over the dough, top with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Transfer the dough to the pizza stone using the parchment paper. Bake for 8 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Let cool for 2 minutes, then cut into strips with a pizza slicer.
