Very quick, easy and came out great. I preheated my oven a bit before placing the bowl of dough in it and it doubled in about 20 minutes.
I have to ask, did a lot of you buy the pizza dough? I rechecked the ingredients over and over....this dough was totally unworkable. I'm confused as to why this wasn't a problem for others.
This makes a delicious pizza. It takes some time and effort but well worth it. I followed as directed and had excellent results. My first time baking a pizza on a stone, will not make one any other way now. I made only 1 pizza, wrapped remaining 3 balls with plastic wrap and put in fridge. Next day removed one, let come to room temp and punched back down. Made pizza, came out as perfect as the first. The whole family loved this pizza. Thank you for the recipe.
I substitute 1/4 cup cornmeal for flour. I've also found that whole milk mozzarella is easier to handle in a semi-frozen state and I cube it instead of just slice it.
My "pizza sauce" is little more than a can of drained plum tomatoes which I puree with an immersion blender and add a little bit of olive oil, black pepper, a pinch of sugar and a pinch of sea salt. Simple.
Delicious and fresh! I did not use pizza sauce, instead I used sliced homegrown tomatoes that I lightly salted and let drain in a strainer to get the excess liquid out. The dough was super easy to make and I used whole wheat flour to replace a cup of AP flour. So simple.
This pizza was delicious but I couldn't quite figure out how to get the sliced mozzarella to cover the entire pie once cooked. I followed the directions but my pizza was not covered in the cheese. Next time I may opt for shredded mozzarella instead.
Yum. My favorite pizza. Plain and delicious. No need for all sorts of add-ons. Please make your own sauce though because something this simple demands quality.
this recipe was great, I used a small amount of honey in place of the sugar
