There are times in life when you have to put a lot of things on your pizza to make it right. Sauce, spinach, basil, artichoke hearts, olives, three cheeses, onions, then some mozzarella, then green peppers and chipotle flakes for good measure.
You have to ask yourself, how much is too much? Will my crust be able to support my hopes and dreams without becoming a soggy floppy mess? With a hearty crust like this one, you don’t have to second guess your pizza goals or live with the regret of never achieving your full pizza making potential.
Here’s what ya need:
1 cup H2O
3/4 teaspoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 2/3 cups bread flour
1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon whole wheat flour
1 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 Tablespoon dry roasted garlic
If you have a bread maker, use the kneading paddle and put all ingredients into your machine in the order listed. If you are using a mixer, use the hook attachment and knead all ingredients until dough is smooth and a little warm.
Remove dough from bread maker or mixer and place in an oiled bowl, cover with a towel or cling wrap. The dough will be ready to use once it has doubled in size!!
We found that throwing it down on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and rolling it out with a rolling pin was the easiest way to get an even crust.
Load it up with all the goodies you can find and then bake in the oven at 475 F for 15 minutes or until browned to your liking.
