pizza finito!

But leave that store bought crust on the shelf and get ready to be AAHHMAZED


Sweet Almond oil has a very neutral taste unlike virgin olive oil which is typically used in pizza dough

The Almond Oil makes a softer dough and when cooked on the pizza stone a surprisingly crisp crust as opposed to EVOO

You'll Need:

3-4 cups organic unbleached all-purpose flour

1 1/4 c very warm water(about 130 degrees)

1 tablespoon (or one packet) rapid rise or instant yeast

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 Tablespoons Organic Virgin Sweet Almond Oil

The Method:

In a large bowl put 1 cup of flour, and the rest of your dry ingredients. Mix a little with your wooden spoon then slowly add your warm water. Mix well until and then add your oil. Once combined start adding your flour in half cup increment (and you can also save yourself some bicep work and use a stand mixer with a dough attachment, but that's too easy:)

Depending on your flour your dough may come together at 3 cups or it may take a little more. If you're using a wooden spoon

When it looks like this...

It's ready to knead!

Before you do this next step go ahead and pre-heat your oven with pizza stone inside to 500 degrees then...

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth then roll into a ball. This recipe can make 2 medium pizza crust or 1 xl. If making 2 then divide your dough into 2 parts and roll them into balls.

Use the same bowl you mixed in, to cover it and let it rise for about 10-20 minutes depending on how warm your kitchen is it may take longer. When you poke it lightly and leave an indenture it's ready to shape.

once shaped using nimble hands and a brave heart place your pizza crust directly onto your pizza stone and allow it to cook until it no longer sticks to the stone. This par-baking is a great way to pre-prepare pizza crust for quick meals later.

The bottom should look something like this...

So at this point I'll take off your training wheels. You can allow it to cool and then do your pizza thang OR you can freeze for later use- either way ENJOY and trust there's more to come!!
