I haven’t made homemade pizza dough in years, and the King Arthur Flour recipe was just staring me in the face. What’s a girl to do? Get cooking, obviously!
I cut the recipe in half because just The Yankee and I would be eating it (as discussed, The Kiddo doesn’t like anything), and it made one small pizza — perfect size for supper for two.
The dough as soon as I finished mixing it was nothing special — looked more like batter than dough, actually:
The next morning it was downright sloshy:
Then the kneading. I added a LOT of flour. A LOT. All patted out on parchment paper it looked pretty promising:
I baked it for about 10 minutes, then added toppings:
And baked into yumminess:
Verdict: Thumbs up. The Yankee said it’s a keeper. The Kiddo wanted to know where the Cheerios were. As always.
I wouldn’t call this perfect, but it was my first attempt. Next time I would definitely bake the crust longer before I put the toppings on. The KAF recipe said to bake till browned but I got impatient and rushed it a bit. Still, no leftovers = recipe success.
I love homemade pizza dough! I have yet to try this recipe though.
Oh you should. It was really easy!
