Pizza Dough (+NEWS)


You know when you want something so badly but it's so insanely unlikely to happen that you kind of let your dreams fade away? Well that was me and the dream of owning my own wood-fired pizza oven. See what I mean by unrealistic?? I'd say I'm pretty ambitious with goals and dreams but there was no situation in the near future that involved moving a three thousand dollar monstrosity into my backyard.

But then something beautiful happened. Some could even call it a Thanksgiving miracle. I found out that there is a wood-fired pizza oven at [Bayshore Park] in Ottawa that is open to the community every few Saturdays a month!! *dances around the room with pizza* You bring your own dough, or pie, or whatever baked good you've made and then you can cook it to wood-fired perfection. I'm super excited to try it out and lucky for you and me they're open tomorrow, October 8th from 1-2:30.

To celebrate I'm sharing my favourite pizza dough recipe that I make ALL THE TIME.

Ingredients

1 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt

Preparation

  1. In a bowl add the yeast and sugar, and then the warm water. Give it a little mix to make sure all the yeast is wet and then let it sit for five minutes until the mixture foams on top.
  2. Mix in the flour and salt with a wooden spoon. 
  3. Add the flour to the yeast mixture and then knead on a floured surface for a few minutes.
  4. Next, pour a little olive oil in a clean bowl and then place the dough in it. Cover with plastic wrap.
  5. Let the dough rise for at least an hour in a warm area (like the oven with the light on, but no heat). I like to let mine sit for a couple of hours so it gets nice and light and fluffy.
  6. Roll out the dough, add your sauce and toppings, and then bake at 500ºF for 10-15 minutes.
  7. This dough also freezes super well!
