Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and yeast until thoroughly combined. Mix in ice water, scraping the bowl as you mix, until all the flour and water have been incorporated into a soft dough. Mix in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface, and knead until the dough is firm but slightly sticky, mixing in more flour if needed. Knead the granulated garlic and Italian seasoning into the dough. (The kneading step can be done in a bread machine set on the Dough setting.)
  2. Form the dough into a round, and place into an oiled bowl. Brush the top with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil, cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise until double, 1 to 2 hours. Punch down the dough, and cut in half. Form each half into a 12-inch pizza crust, and place on pizza pans.
  3. Move a rack to the bottom position in oven, and preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  4. Bake the pizza crusts on the bottom rack just until firm, 3 to 7 minutes. Allow the crusts to cool for about 10 minutes before topping with sauce, cheese, or other desired ingredients and returning to oven to bake.

I am not even sure if I did this right. I did use powdered garlic and it was fine I think. I used my bread maker to do the dough for one pizza only, and let it go through the cycle. Then I took it out and put it into a bowl with olive oil and let it rise for an hour. It did rise a little, probably half way. It may have risen further if I let it rise another hour. I took it out, and had to put it onto a baking/cookie sheet because it would have fallen through the reg pizza pan I use with holes in it. It was sticky and was not what I was used to for pizza crust, thought I ruined it... but put it in the oven for the 7 minutes to pre bake the crust (the smell was to die for!!). let it cool, put my toppings on and back in at 400 for roughly 16 minutes. The bottom of the crust was SUPER crispy and very flavorful!! This crust, well the way I did it, could really hold up to heavy toppings without it falling on your lap. GREAT RECIPE!!!! Just wish I knew if I did it right.

This pizza dough definitely tastes good and is not so difficult to make. However, I either needed to reduce the amount of water by about 25% or increase the flour by about 25% because otherwise the dough turned out to be way too sticky to handle. Once this adjustment was made, it was really nice. Also, the number of pies you are able to make was far greater than 2 12-inch pizzas - perhaps I made them thinner than the recipe called for. Either way, you won't be disappointed with the taste.

Nice dough to make when you run out of bread flour! Used it to make little cheese pizzas with kids. They added black olive "eyes"with rosemary "lashes", and used a thin strip of red bell pepper for the "smile". I especially liked it having a long proofing time, this allowed me to prep the dough and have that mess cleaned up and out of the way before my little guests arrived to make their pizzas. Thank you Tony!
