My family makes homemade pizza ... a lot. Maybe a little too much. It takes a while to get tired of it though, because you have a thousand topping options to mix and choose from. Top with your favourite veggies and/or meats, and customize your dough with dried basil, rosemary.. etc.
I usually make a double batch of this recipe, and it sufficiently feeds my family of 5.
Anyways, I intorduce you to The Best Pizza Dough Recipe, from Sugar Spun Run;
²Many commenters have reported using active dry yeast (use the same amount, 2 1/4 teaspoon) with success. Some people have proofed the yeast first with the 3/4 cup warm water, which is what I would recommend, while others have just mixed it into the dough as instructed. Both have had success!
³Ideally your water should be between 105-115F (40-46C). I usually just use warm tap water but do make sure that your water isn't too hot or it will kill your yeast!
Any other notes and tips are on the website:
Baking is a great and fun way to pass time! It is a science and art that requires patience. Creating a recipe is actually quite difficult, with many failures along the way!
