|Easy Homemade Pizza Crust|
Adapted from Emile Henry recipe.
This is an easy recipe for homemade pizza dough with directions for making a Cheese, Pesto or Mushrooms pizza. Also included, direction for grilling the pizza on an outdoor gas, charcoal, or natural wood grills.
3 cups all-purpose flour
Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt in mixing bowl. Whisk until ingredients are blended.
Stir in water and 2 tablespoons olive oil until well blended.
Place dough on a lightly floured counter, baking mat or cutting board. Knead 10 minutes. Cover with towel and let rest for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle Pizza Peel * with 2 tablespoons corn meal. Place dough on peel and press into a circle. Stretch and roll dough shaping a 14 inch circle and add toppings.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 min., or until crust is crispy.
GAS GRILL: Light burners, put Emile Henry Pizza Stone on grill grate, let stone heat up to cooking temperature, 500-700 degrees F, depending upon your recipe instructions.
Meanwhile, rollout pizza dough onto a pizza peel. Add sauce, cheese and toppings.
Just before cooking, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of corn meal on Pizza Stone. Slide pizza directly onto hot Pizza Stone. Cover the grill and cook over high heat for 15-20 min., or until crust is lightly browned and the top is bubbly.
When pizza is done, remove it with pizza peel. If you're making another right away, place on a platter; or serve pizza right on the Pizza Stone. Lift up Pizza Stone at handles using potholders. The handles will be very hot.
*Also called a pizza paddle. A flat, broad sheet of wood or metal with a handle used to slide breads and pizza onto a baking stone in the oven.
