Our Men Who Cook series continues with another great recipe from Todd Daily. This one is for a great Pizza Crust. If you’d like to contribute a recipe, please email me. I’ll let Todd take if from here:
(enough for two large cookie sheets)
- 2 c. whole wheat flour
- 2 c. white flour
- 2 c. warm water
- 2 pkg yeast
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
- ¼ c olive oil
Mix together and knead. Add enough flour so that it’s not sticky. The dough should be elastic.
Roll out and place on greased cookie sheets. Top with chopped tomatoes, pizza seasoning and parmesan cheese. Then add your favorite toppings and cheeses.
Bake 25 minutes at 400.
Thanks Todd. So now you have a great pizza crust, what to put on it? I prefer a spicy tomato sauce with pepperoni and Italian sausage and lots of fresh mozzarella. But with a tasty crust like this, why not experiment? Fresh tomatoes and feta cheese on an olive oil wash. Spinach, mozzarella, bacon on a creamy garlic white sauce. Or a nice vegetable mix on either garlic or tomato sauce base: artichoke hearts, roma tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, red and green onions. Up the flavor and add some garlic, basil and oregano to the crust just before you roll it out. Enjoy.
