The search for the best pizza dough EVER has been going on for about a year. It began with Michael finally getting a Kitchenaid Mixer (something he’d wanted for years). Over the year we’ve been making homemade pizzas, we’ve tried about 4 or 5 different recipes. Some were decent but nothing special, some were horrible. Recently we found one that is hands down the best dough recipe we’ve has so far. It was so good that we were both talking about the crust for a week while we enjoyed the leftovers! Even three days later, the pizza was amazing.
This dough recipe us much easier to use. It’s not as sticky and messy as some of the others. It’s easier to roll out and form a pizza shape, too. Here is that recipe:
The only problem with this recipe is that it takes over an hour to do. My suggestion is to start it early and do other things.
Or, if you are like me and slow in the kitchen, just prep all the toppings! The most recent version of the homemade pizza we made had several toppings. The first: sausage, hot peppers and black olives. The second: artichoke hearts, feta cheese, onions and tomatoes.
I like to add olive oil with minced garlic and herbs, a dash of salt and freshly chopped rosemary to naked dough after it’s been rolled out.
I’m a garlic fanatic, so I tend to add tons of garlic to anything I can. As for the sauce, I use either a jarred marinara sauce or a pizza sauce and I add some tomato paste to it to thicken it up. It’s really good.
We usually bake the pizzas in the oven at 500 degrees but this time Michael tried it on the grill. It made the dough crunchier. They turned out so well!
The pizza was delicious! This is definitely the dough recipe that we’ll use for awhile now. Each time we’ve tried it, it’s been successful and melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
This recipe will be sticking around for awhile.
