Pizza Dough (serves 4)
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 ½ tsp salt
- 1 package fast-acting yeast
- 3 medium tomatoes, sliced
- 2 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 clove garlic, sliced
- 1 medium bell pepper, diced
- ½ cup shredded gruyere cheese
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp salt
Mix dry ingredients. Add water and knead for 5 minutes. Form into a ball. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise at room temperature for half an hour.
Set oven to 450°F. Then prep toppings (you can substitute tomato sauce for whole tomatoes).
Dust a cutting board with flour and roll out dough — 1/16 inch for a thin crust, 1/8 inch for a thick crust. Crimp edges to form a lip.
Move dough to a baking pan dusted with flour. Put on tomatoes in a concentric pattern, or spread on a thin layer of tomato sauce.
Then add mushroom, bell pepper and garlic. Sprinkle on cheese, and dust with oregano and salt.
Place in 450°F oven for 20 minutes. The crust should be starting to brown and the cheese melted and bubbling when it’s done.
Transfer to a cutting board with a large spatula and cut.
Alternatives: For a dough with more character, add a tablespoon of olive oil to the wet ingredients. You can also use an oven-proof skillet to fry the rolled out dough in olive oil, frying each side till browned. Then put on toppings & transfer the skillet to the oven to finish cooking.
This goes best with beer. Enjoy.
