I ran across a recipe a few weeks ago on Peter Reinhart's Blog, Pizza Quest, titled NY Style Pizza Dough.
If you know me, you know pizza is a favorite.
If you've heard of Peter Reinhart, you know that he's one of the Bread Making Gurus in the current rennaisance in home bread making in the U.S.
And finally if you know anything at all about pizza, it's that New York City was and in many senses still is the mecca for pizza here in the states.
Well, Peter's got a Pizza blog, which I read, and there I saw this recipe.
I liked it in that it's fairly simple to make and was really easy to use, just follow his directions.
So here's the pie.
Dough in the pan.
The recipe will yield enough for 2 -12 inch pies, but I put the whole ball into my 18" pan.
Into the oven...
The whole pie had shredded fresh parm, mozzarella, basil, garlic, and a touch of salt.
The left side had portobello mushroom and onions, the right had deli sliced pepperoni.
And out of the oven...
Here's a bottom shot.
And on the plate.
If you're new to making homemade dough I'd say give this a shot-it worked for me.
And by golly it tasted great!
Eat well my friends.
