Making Pizza is a very kid friendly thing to do and my little Chef Cate just loves cooking with me. So we made pizza....she made cheese and I made a veggie with white sauce.
|Dissolve 1 tablespoon of yeast in 1 cup warm water.|
Should be between 110 and 115 degrees.
Let it set for about 10 minutes until frothy.
|Next, in a separate bowl mix 2 cups bread flour,|
1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons white sugar.
|Next add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to liquid yeast mix.|
With a dough hook mix on low while pouring in yeast mixture.
Turn up speed and scrape edges of bowl.
Mix until flour is well mixed with liquid.
|Dough will be sticky.|
|Next put some flour on the clean counter top.|
|Spread flour with hands.|
|Pour dough on counter and with floured hands kneed dough for|
about a minute.
|Shape dough into ball.|
|Place dough in a bowl and cover with plastic. |
Let it rest for 30 minutes.
|Clean work area!|
|On a sheet tray brush Olive Oil until thinly|
covered. About 1 Tablespoon or so.
|Next preheat oven to 350 degrees.|
Lightly sprinkle with corn meal. This helps the pizza to not
stick to the tray and adds some crunch to the crust.
|Remove pizza from oven.|
Spread your favorite sauce over the pizza. Cate used some high
quality left over Marinara sauce for hers. Don't use cheap Pizza
sauce....this is gourmet after all!
|Next spread the pizza with your favorite cheeses.|
We used fresh grated parmesan, sharp cheddar,
and shredded mozzarella.
|Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the edges brown nicely.|
|Enjoy....blow first. It's hot!|
The other grandkids liked it too. This pizza was gone in seconds!
