This is a great fun recipe from “The Bread Bible”. You must make it ahead. It makes 3 large pizzas. Becca and Suz’s favorite dough recipe.
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour (organic, non bleached)
2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons organic sugar
2 1/4 teaspoon instant yeast (I used 2 1/2 teaspoon active yeast~just activated it first)
2 cups water/whey (1 cup water/ 1 cup whey) Why Whey?
a few Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Turn oven to 500 degrees.
~If you are using active yeast go ahead and whisk it 1/2 cup warm water~ let sit for about 5 minutes. Whisk flour, salt, and sugar in bowl.
Make a well in dough, add yeast mixed w/ water or mix dry yeast in with flour, sugar, salt. Then add the 1 1/2 cups water/ whey.
Stir about 20 -30 times with hands.
I love love little helpers!
It is ok if it is a little flakey. Form into a ball and coat generously with Olive Oil.
Cover with saran wrap and let rise for 1/2 hour(I let mine sit for 2 hours~better fermentation). Cover and put in refrigerator for at least 4 hours up to 4 days. Take out of fridge. Form all 3 balls ~ smash down and let rest for 20 minutes on a pizza pan or baking sheet. I put the other 2 balls back in the refrigerator.
Stretch dough out thin and then cook for 5 minutes at 500 degrees.
Take out and top with sauce and toppings and then finish cooking directly on the rack or stone w/o the pizza pan for a crispier crust.
Never any leftovers.
