    Thumbs up Home made Pizza dough recipe ...

    My brother in law is out visiting with us from Manitoba and we spent the day up at our local range with about a half a dozen of my rifles so that he could do some shooting before he heads back home next Tuesday. When we got home this afternoon I made up a double batch of my home made yeast raised Pizza dough and then made two large Pizzas for dinner, one Ham and Pineapple and one Pepperoni, Sauteed Onions, and Black Olives both topped off with a generous helping of Mozzarella cheese. We couldn't finish all of it, so we have a few slices left over to enjoy tomorrow!

    Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe

    1 package active dry yeast
    1/4 cup lukewarm water
    1 cup boiling water
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon shortening
    1 3/4 cups flour
    3 tablespoons olive oil

    Activate the yeast in the luke warm water, letting it sit for about 10 minutes or until it starts to foam on top.

    Place sugar, salt, shortening and boiling water in a large bowl, stir until sugar and shortening dissolve. Cool to lukewarm. Add yeast mixture.

    Add 1/2 cup flour and beat until smooth. Add remaining flour or enough to make dough just barely firm enough to handle.

    Knead until smooth on a lightly floured board. Divide in half. Knead each piece into a smooth ball. Flatten each ball on to a lightly greased round or rectangular pizza pan. Press out to spread the dough around the pan, creating a slight rim round the edge. Let rise for about 15 minutes in a warm place.

    Pre-heat your oven to 375º F. (Ovens vary on temperatures, so you'll have to experiment with the proper setting a bit.)

    Brush the dough lightly with olive oil. Add your favorite toppings.
    Bake for 18 to 25 minutes (again, ovens vary). Check it every few minutes after about 15 to 16 minutes to make sure that it doesn't burn! The edges will turn a nice golden brown when it's done.

    Best results are if you use an ironware baking stone to bake the pizza, the big round style that is made especially for pizzas … (we have two of them!)

    If you have diabetes like I have, you need to keep the carbs down.
    The way I do that is I use tortillas for the crust. You still get the great taste of pizza with far less carbohydrates.
    But, if you don't have diabetes, enjoy this great recipe.

    An excessive amount of "carbs" means different things to different people ...

    The old guy who ran the Pizza place near where I grew up thought anyone who put fruit on a pizza was a "blankety-blank. I agree with him. Pizza dough is interesting though.

    My recipe is pretty similar except...

    Grind your flour fresh from whole wheat. There is nothing like it. Use a pizza stone and crank the oven up as high as it will go (mine goes to 550, the special stone on the grill can get up to 700+).

    Not many people know that you can make pizza on a grill.
    I used to do it all the time when my kids live at home.
    I've only made it twice since they moved out.

    Yes, Pizza on the grill is to die for. Smoke gives is a different flavor.

    I use the Artisan bread in 5 minutes basic recipe for pizza crust. It works good and I usually have some in the fridge ready to go. I'd imagine if you added a bit of olive oil and sugar to the basic recipe you would get real close to Reverend Al's.

    That pizza dough looks awesome.
    My brother does something similar using a bread making machine that makes a awesome crust. Sadly, I don't recall the details, but if you don't mind cleaning up the machine, it doesn't all the other work involved.

    disclaimer: I gotta watch the carbs as well

    I like everything up to the shortening part. This stuff is pure trans fats and I won't eat it. I will season cast iron with it but that polymerizes it and it doesn't cook off into the food cooked in the iron. You could find a shortening substitute that is a much healthier choice than Crisco.

    Nuts. I use a bread machine pizza recipe but would like to try this one. BUT... I just saw this, and don't really have the time to do a yeast recipe tonight, and tomorrow is Pesach (Passover). So now you've got my mouth watering and I've got to wait until the Feast of unleavened bread is over! Hate it when that happens...

    My wife has a pizza recipe that uses cauliflower for the crust. Amazingly enough, it is pretty good. You have to grate it, and then dry it out a bit, in the oven, before putting the toppings on and baking it.

    You should post it! My youngest son (14) is very picky and getting him to eat vegetables is a chore. But that might just work...

    Make your pizza on unleavened bread from the bread machine. Will that work?

    Wife makes pizza dough in the bread machine. Venison pizza is great. I have not had a commercial pizza in 30 years.

    My sons have been thinking about it. I'll probably egg them on this year. We occasionally have commercial pizza when my daughter is feeling lazy and it's her night to cook. She's the only one with expendable money in the house, lol.

    Look at recipes for cauliflower pizza crust.
    You can't pick up a slice, you have to eat it with a fork. But I love the taste of cauliflower. It tastes great.

    Or just leave the yeast or baking powder/soda out.
