It’s Not Delivery, It’s Via The Bistro

Delivered...fresh from the oven.

Delivered...fresh from the oven.

Pizza is definitely an American staple, but if you have yours delivered or defrosted we’d like to point you in a different direction – This pie is warm, fresh, and it’s topped exactly the way you like it…and at the end of the day, meals made from scratch always taste better!

Start your homemade pizza by dissolving active dry yeast and sugar in warm water.  Let this mixture rest for about 5 minutes or until foamy.  Next, add flour (we went for an all-purpose and whole wheat combo) and kosher salt, then mix.  Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for ~10 minutes.  Transfer the ball of dough to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a towel, and set in a warm place for 2 hours.

After 2 hours the dough will have nearly doubled in size.  At this time, you’re ready to make your meal.  Roll out the dough until the outside edges are about ¼ inch thick, and place it in the oven at 475 degrees for about 5 minutes.  Make sure to deflate any giant bubbles with a fork!  When the 5 minutes are up, remove the dough and top your pizza.  The above pictured includes a thin layer of a tomato-based sauce, small pieces of buffalo mozzarella, chunks of fresh pineapple, and slices of prosciutto – but that was just our preference for the night.  When you have personalized your pizza with toppings, place it back in the oven and cook until your added ingredients are cooked to perfection.

This pizza is all about you and your preference.  With a solid base, like this whole wheat pizza dough, the rest is up to you. 

Finally, something to call your own!

Until next time,

xoxo,
