- 2.2 pounds pounds of all-purpose flour (or 7 ½ cups but grams are preferable as flour can be packed differently in cups)
- 1 packet yeast
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 20.2 ounces water, room temperature (or 2 ½ cups - 600 ml)
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 3 teaspoons salt
- 1 jar Vero Gusto® Tomato & Basil sauce
- 2 6-oz fresh mozzarella, sliced in rounds
- Fresh basil
- Your favorite pizza topping(s)
- Dissolve yeast in water and honey, let sit 5 minutes.
- Mix with flour for 2 minutes, add salt and keep mixing until smooth, then incorporate olive oil.
- Cut in four pieces, shape them in four tight balls, place in a covered plastic container lightly oiled at room temperature. One hour later, refrigerate until the following day.
- The next day, take out of the refrigerator 4-5 hours before use.
Pizza (next day):
- Take dough out of the refrigerator 4-5 hours before use.
- Pre-heat the oven to highest temperature possible (550° F).
Preparation with a Pizza Stone:
- On a floured table, stretch each of the four doughs balls so they are thin and round pizzas.
- Place on individual parchment paper sheets slightly larger than the size of the pizzas.
- Top dough with sauce, mozzarella and whatever favorite topping you choose.
- Place pizzas on a pizza wheel or a sheet pan. Bake for about 5 minutes or until slightly crispy and browned.
- Turn on broiler the last minute if a more charred crust is preferred.
With baking pan, (possibly thin like a cookie sheet or a steel pan):
- Oil the pan, stretch the dough on the table and cover the pan. Add sauce, basil, mozzarella, and bake in the oven until slightly crispy and thoroughly cooked.
