Pizza time

Someone asked me to share my pizza recipe I mentioned in another thread.

1lb flour
1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 tsp garlic
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tblspn oil, any veggie oil should do.
1 cup water

I think it still needs a little bit of tweaking. This was the recipe from a pizza shop I worked at broken down by a factor of 32 and intended to be mixed by machine. Kneading by hand works, but seems to make a slightly brittle dough that you'll have to roll out instead of tossing. If you've never mixed dough before, put everything but the flour in FIRST and then put the flour on top or you will be a sad cowboy. Also, your hands will be covered in sticky shit.

Anyway, cover the dough and let it rise in the fridge. Overnight for regular yeast or about four to six hours for quick rise yeast. This recipe makes a thick 14" pizza or a regular 16" pizza. Oil your pan or stone heavily before rolling the dough out. Here's the sauce recipe I like:

Sweet thai chili sauce (I use my own, you can use Sriracha or really any hot sauce) and either tomato paste or ranch at a 1:1 ratio, and herbs to taste.

I don't remember the shop's regular sauce recipe, and I haven't developed my own, but if you want to do that it's going to be tomato paste or puree and water in roughly equal amounts with sugar, salt, garlic powder, and herbs. You can also put BBQ, or ranch, or alfredo, or pesto, or just about anything straight on the dough if it's thick enough.

Then just put whatever toppings you want. KISS applies here. Here's some awesome combos:

- Pepperoni or sausage and onions
- BBQ sauce, chicken, bacon, and red onions. Add cilantro after it cooks.
- Tomato, bell pepper, mushroom, onion
- Ground beef, pickles, cheddar, mozzarella and jack cheese, ketchup, and mustard. Better than it sounds. Not one I can eat too often though.
- Feta, spinach, kalamata olives, and drizzle some oil on top. Lamb would probably be awesome but I've never tried that.
- Spaghetti. Cook it first. Use spaghetti sauce instead of pizza sauce and slice up some meatballs.

Brush some oil around the crust and cook for 20 - 30 minutes at 480 degrees. It's done when the cheese has browned.

Regarding the sauce; I think watering the tomato paste down slowly and to the eye is key; pizza sauce should have a drier consistency than marinara sauce or the bottled pizza sauce you buy in a supermarket. That stuff has too much water in it and will make your pizza soggy when the heat and salt draw the moisture out of everything.
