Girls Just Wanna Have Pizza!
I have two great pizza dough recipes to share with you. One, is a classic dough taught to me by my beautiful friend and brilliant chef at home, Kristi. It’s requires takes some time and patience but isn’t difficult and is and TOTALLY worth it. It comes out of the oven crispy on the outside and a little chewy on the inside. The other is the quickest, easiest dough I have ever made. It’s more flaky and buttery, almost like a pie crust. I have made both other the last 2 weeks and they are suuuuuuper delicious in there own yummy ways.
- 2¼ cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- ¼ cup butter (room temp)
oven to 450 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or prep your pizza stone.
large mixing bowl combine all ingredients, using dough hook mix on low
speed until one ball of dough forms. (This can be made without a mixer,
you will just stir until you have a ball of dough that forms) Keep flour need by, it’s a pretty stick dough. Just add flour as you need to.
flour onto a rolling pin and your hands, remove the ball of dough from
the mixing bowl and pat down with flour to help form into a solid ball.
- Separate the dough into four or five balls, depending on what size pizza’s you want. cover your rolling pin in flour and roll a dough ball flat, until it’s your desired width. I like this particular dough on the thinner side. It’s easier to roll it out flat and the cut your dough into heart shapes with a sharp knife. You can also try putting 2 medium balls side by side with a smaller one under them in the middle and rolling that out into a heart. This may require some tugging and shaping of the dough with your hands.
Makes 4-5 mini pizzas – bake 10-12/until bottom begins to spot brown.
Sauce It UP!
In Calabria, Italy, where my family is from, they don’t cook the sauce before it goes in the pizza because it cooks in the oven…makes sense, right?
You may be thinking, that’s not much of a recipe! When it comes to sauce, I say “quanto basta” which means, as much as you like. Channel your inner Nonna and taste it as you go 😉
Add your toppings. I threw a pizza party for a few GF’s the other day and I thought it would be fun to let everyone pick her own toppings. I roasted zucchini, red peppers and tomatoes and put out blue cheese, fresh mozzarella, goat cheese, figs, cooked pancetta, prosciutto, hot pepper, onions, pepperoni (use a heart cookie cutter to make it extra awesome!) mushrooms, jalapenos, pineapple, red pepper flakes, and fresh cracked pepper. Although classic cheese or pepperoni pizza is awesome, it was extra fun for everyone to build their own.
