A few weekends ago when I was at home, my family and Pat and I had a make-your-own-pizza-party!
I followed this recipe for the pizza dough and cut up various toppings and spread out different sauces and everyone went to town!
1/2 cup warm water
1 package yeast
1 1/4 cup water, room temperature
2 tbsp EVOO, plus more for greasing the bowl
4 cups bread flour (I used all-purpose)
1 1/2 tsp salt
Place warm water and yeast in a measuring cup. Let sit until yeast dissolves and swells, about 5 minutes. Add room temperature water and olive oil and stir.
Add flour and salt in a bowl. Slowly add liquid ingredients to the flour mixture.
After the ingredients are combined, knead dough with hands (or mixer if you were home in VA!) for 5 minutes.
And knead. Then flex your muscles : )
Roll dough into a bowl and cover in an oiled bowl for 1 1/2-2 hours, or until doubled in size.
(sorry, no picture.... too.excited.)
Now you are ready for the fun part! Make sure to grease your grill extremely well with olive oil so the dough won't stick. Also oil one side of the pizza dough.
Place oiled-side down on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until brown.
|Pizza sauce, pesto, carmelized onions, chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese!|
With the cooked side facing up, make your pizza! Return pizzas to grill for 4-6 minutes, and serve!
