I’ve got a new arm workout for you.
Start with a pound or two of gooey, yeasty dough…
Warm up with with some low tosses
Increase the intensity by adding height
How high can you go? Not very high in my low-ceiling dining room. 🙁
Feel the biceps in action
Stretch it out while the oven works it’s magic.
Best homemade pizza dough EVER. I’m hoping it wasn’t a fluke but actual skill and good recipe on my part. Only a second batch will tell. And next time I will measure along the way so I can share the goodness.
The pizza stone undoubtedly added to the success of dinner. I knew that if this pizza kick was going to continue I had to get serious and get a stone. I chose a Oneida baking stone from Bed, Bath, & Beyond and it worked beautifully.
My lunchtime run will be consumed with thoughts of leftover pizza!
Do you bake bread or pizza dough? What are your tricks for turning out the perfect loaf/crust?
A few things that I learned yesterday
- Add more sweetener and more salt, especially when using whole wheat flour
- White whole wheat produces lighter, fluffier results for the same nutritional make up
- When working the dough add the flour to your hands, not the dough, to add less flour overall. This keeps the dough gooey and elastic.
- Wrap dough in a plastic bag while rising to create some extra heat
