Pizza dough

Most Sunday nights at our house is Pizza Night. We make own pizza dough from scratch, use fresh ingredients, and cook our 10 to 12 inch pizza on a Baking Steel. It is also Movie Night for us. We watch a good movie while enjoying a delicious pizza and a terrific bottle of wine. What could be better?

Pizza dough rising

Pizza dough is the most essential part of making a delicious pizza. If the dough is not good, no matter how good the pizza toppings, the pizza will be mediocre. Learn to make your pizza dough. It is not that hard to do. We use a sourdough starter to add some tang to the crust. You don’t need this but we think it helps with the flavors and those microbes in the starter help the gut. There are plenty of pizza dough recipes out there in the Internet. There are also plenty of good pizza books at your local library.
