Pizza Dough Recipe:
  • Mix equal parts (by weight) water and flour with about a TBS of yeast.
  • Loosely cover and let it sit over night, or about 8-12 hours.
  • Mix in another TBS of yeast, a few TBS to ½ cup (for about 5# of dough) of olive oil, salt and another
  • 1 part flour.
  • Mix everything together and knead until it forms a rough but cohesive dough.
  • Let it sit, covered, until it doubles in size. Do this step in the fridge to slow the process and let the
  • flavors develop.
  • Knead the dough on a floured counter until smooth.
  • Portion into desired amounts and let it sit again- it should just about double again.
  • Press or roll out into flat, pizza-shaped circles and top with various pizza-like ingredients.
  • Bake hot and fast.
  • Pour a beer.
  • Eat the pizza.
  • Repeat if necessary.
