In my opinion pizza is one of the best comfort foods, I absolutely love it and could eat it all the time. The first thing I made when I finally got around to getting a new food processor was pizza dough! I have been craving homemade pizza like crazy, and I decided to go all out and make many different kinds. If you have never made dough, it was super easy to make.
Here are the ingredients you need:
1 tbsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup of warm water
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
Dissolve the sugar and yeast in a small bowl with the warm water for about 5 minutes.
Add the flour and salt to your food processor and pulse a few times to mix together.
Once your yeast and sugar have dissolved, turn on the food processor and add a little bit of the liquid at a time through the top until it is mixed, then continue with a little more, etc.
Once the dough is formed and is no longer sticking to the sides, mix for another minute or so.
Coat a large mixing bowl with olive oil and add the dough to the bowl.
Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel for an hour and a half and then once it has risen it looks like this.
You are now ready to make pizza! Flour a cutting board and rolling pin and roll out the dough into pizzas. Spray your pans before topping with the dough.
For the pizzas I made I topped the dough with a little tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, my toppings, a little more mozzarella, a sprinkle of Italian Seasoning and pepper, then a drizzle of olive oil. Delicious!
Bake at 450 degrees until the bottom turns slightly brown.
The pizza shown in the blog header is topped with homemade turkey meatballs.
This pizza has slices of fresh tomato, ricotta (mixed with parmesan, garlic powder, pepper, and parsley), and homemade turkey meatballs on half.
This pizza is half cheese, and half mushroom and onion.
Yum, yum, yum!
