Homemade Pizza

Not everyone likes homemade pizza. I would say that's due to a lack of delicious recipes. We found this recipe in the extra features of the movie, The Santa Clause. Of all places to find an amazing recipe.

Pizza Dough by Wolfgang Puck   

Ingredients
  • 1 package* active dry yeast or fresh yeast
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 cup warm water (105° - 115°)**
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Extra-virgin olive oil


* 1 package equals 2 ¼ tsp
** We don’t actually measure the temperature, just guess

Directions
  • Dissolve yeast and honey with ¼ cup of warm water.
  • Add oil, flour, salt, and remaining water, stir 5 minutes.
  • Knead on slightly floured work surface for 2-3 minutes, until smooth and firm.
  • Add to slightly oiled mixing bowl and leave at room temperature to rise for 30 minutes.*
  • Divide dough (makes 4, 8” pizzas**) into equally portioned balls.
  • Pre-heat oven to 500° F
  • Dip ball into flour and shake off excess.
  • Place on flat surface and stretch, making outer edge thicker than the middle.
  • Do a two minute pre-bake before you put the toppings on. Keeps the middle from getting soggy. 
  • Bake until crust is slightly browned (10-12 minutes). ***


* You can let it rise longer. It actually gets a little firmer and thicker the longer it rises, but that also makes it harder to work with, but you can do it.
** You can just make 2, 16” pizzas which works out just nice for us.


Gluten Free Pizza Dough inspired by Wolfgang Puck   

Ingredients
  • 1 package* active dry yeast or fresh yeast (I actually did 2 1/2 tsp this time)
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water (105° - 115°)**
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (I used Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose, but you can use what you like I'm sure)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Psyllium Husk Powder (This can be found in the dietary section with constipation remedies) (You could probably also use just 6 tsp. of xantham gum if you prefer it)
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Extra-virgin olive oil


* 1 package equals 2 ¼ tsp
** We don’t actually measure the temperature, just guess

Directions
  • Dissolve yeast and honey with ¼ cup of warm water.
  • Stir the psyllium husk powder into the remaining water. Be sure to mix thoroughly so you don't end up with lumps of the psyllium powder. It bulks up quickly so stir in slowly.)
  • Add oil, flour, salt, and remaining water, stir 5 minutes.
  • Knead on slightly floured work surface for 2-3 minutes, until smooth and firm. Best to use a stand mixer if you have one
  • Add to slightly oiled mixing bowl and leave at room temperature to rise for 30 minutes.*
  • Divide dough (makes 4, 8” pizzas**) into equally portioned balls.
  • Pre-heat oven to 500° F
  • Dip ball into flour and shake off excess.
  • Place on flat surface and stretch, making outer edge thicker than the middle.
  • Bake for two minutes and then put toppings on them. 
  • Bake until crust is slightly browned and cheese is melted. About ten minutes.***


* You can let it rise longer. It actually gets a little firmer and thicker the longer it rises, but that also makes it harder to work with, but you can do it.
** You can just make 2, 16” pizzas which works out just nice for us. 
It's not even round, but this is what it looked like after the pre-bake. Doesn't look weird right? Just like regular pizza dough.

***For both recipes, we sprinkle a good portion of corn meal under the dough to help it bake more evenly. I swear it works and it's great!!
