Neopolitan Pizza Dough 2019

This has been my consistent pizza dough recipe for the last couple of years.  I go back and forth with a couple of others but this is my go to recipe.  Simple and Delicious!!

Ingredients

4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 plus 2 Tablespoons warm water (100-109 degrees)
2 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1 teaspoon yeast
Olive Oil, for brushing
Cornmeal, for dusting (or you can use flour)

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor (or stand up mixer or place in a large bowl and mix by hand). I use a food processor.  It works fast and awesomely!
  2. Rub olive oil over the dough and place in large bowl lightly oiled. You can make this place in fridge overnight (or 2-3 days) or let it rise a couple of hours and make your pizza(s) the same day. If you decide to do the same day cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in a draft free, warm area.  Give it a couple hours to rise.
  3. Top with pizza sauce and cheese or whatever you desire. Bake at 475 degrees for 10-12 minutes. 

Did you know you can freeze pizza dough?  Bake one dough today, freeze the other and make it when you feel like it.  I wrap the dough ball tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer. You can take it out the night before and let it defrost overnight.

Enjoy!
