Basic Pizza Dough

Makes: 2 crusts - 4 servings

Cost per serving (Heidelberg): ~€0.11

Calories per serving: ~244

  • 2 cups flour (~250g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tblsp. powdered milk
  • 1 pkg. instant yeast (Dr. Oetker--for 500g bread)
  • 1 scant cup warm water
Mix dry. Add water and mix to form a shaggy dough. Let dough rest for 5 minutes, then knead on a floured surface until dough is smooth and elastic. Put about 1 tblsp olive oil in the bottom of a large bowl, and coat dough by rolling in oil. Let dough rise in a covered bowl until doubled in bulk (between 30 and 60 min. depending on the ambient temperature). Punch down dough and divide into two equal sized balls (or just use one large dough ball for garlic bread). Roll out each ball on a floured surface and add toppings as desired.

For whole wheat dough, substitute ~3/4 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour.

Makes: 2 pizza crusts or 1 garlic bread
