A pile of good things on some dough. That’s what pizza is to me.
This pizza was too beautiful not to share. We used our favorite dough recipe and piled on some of our farmers market favorites, from bottom to top it went like this:
Porzio’s Pizza Sauce
thinly sliced onions
a little freshly grated Romano
Charleston Artisan Cheesehouse mozzarella
Okra from Ron’s Roots sautéed with a little masa and our Sea Salt&Pepper Blend
Chourico from Wishbone Heritage Farms
Simple, easy, delicious.
It’s time to party, pizza party!

We found this recipe here on The Kitchn, and we thought, Could it be this simple?
Why yes, my friends, it is this simple.
This dough is the best dough we’ve found so far! It can hold more than its weight in toppings and it has passed the Pizza For Breakfast Test. That’s right, we almost ate all of the pizza we made using this dough (more on that later) but then we thought, No, this crust needs to be put to the test, the pizza for breakfast test.
If you’re unfamiliar with this, we have a theory that the sign of truly amazing pizza is how it holds up the next day. And this crust really held its own.
And it was so easy to make!! Don’t believe me, just watch:
Here’s how to make pizza dough dreams come true:
3/4 cups lukewarm water
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
In a medium bowl stir together water and yeast. Add flour and salt and mix together until you have a shaggy dough. Turn out your dough and any remaining flour onto a clean surface and knead until the dough comes together and holds its shape.
At this point, you can use the dough right away, or coat it in olive oil throw it in a clean bowl & cover with a towel for a few hours, OR you can wrap it up in cling wrap & store it in the fridge for a couple of days.
When you do decide to use it, heat your oven to 500 F and cook for 9 to 15 minutes. (We usually roll the dough out on some parchment paper on a cookie sheet, we find this cuts down on the mess when we get carried away with the toppings.)
