1 1/2 cups
ice water, or as needed
This pizza dough definitely tastes good and is not so difficult to make. However, I either needed to reduce the amount of water by about 25% or increase the flour by about 25% because otherwise the dough turned out to be way too sticky to handle. Once this adjustment was made, it was really nice. Also, the number of pies you are able to make was far greater than 2 12-inch pizzas - perhaps I made them thinner than the recipe called for. Either way, you won't be disappointed with the taste.
Did not like this dough. It was very sticky. Hard to form into a pizza shape. Once cooked it was too chewy and greasy. I won't be trying this one again.
I am not even sure if I did this right. I did use powdered garlic and it was fine I think. I used my bread maker to do the dough for one pizza only, and let it go through the cycle. Then I took it out and put it into a bowl with olive oil and let it rise for an hour. It did rise a little, probably half way. It may have risen further if I let it rise another hour. I took it out, and had to put it onto a baking/cookie sheet because it would have fallen through the reg pizza pan I use with holes in it. It was sticky and was not what I was used to for pizza crust, thought I ruined it... but put it in the oven for the 7 minutes to pre bake the crust (the smell was to die for!!). let it cool, put my toppings on and back in at 400 for roughly 16 minutes. The bottom of the crust was SUPER crispy and very flavorful!! This crust, well the way I did it, could really hold up to heavy toppings without it falling on your lap. GREAT RECIPE!!!! Just wish I knew if I did it right.
Nice dough to make when you run out of bread flour! Used it to make little cheese pizzas with kids. They added black olive "eyes"with rosemary "lashes", and used a thin strip of red bell pepper for the "smile". I especially liked it having a long proofing time, this allowed me to prep the dough and have that mess cleaned up and out of the way before my little guests arrived to make their pizzas. Thank you Tony!
Fabulous! Nice and light yet flavourful. Will be making this again.
The recipe as written calls for WAY too much water. Once the extra water was accounted for by adding approximately 1 1/2 cups of extra flour, the crust was fine -- good texture, mild flavor.
