Full Belly Farm Pizza Dough

Posted by terrepruitt on October 7, 2020

We haven’t had outside prepared food since February or maybe March.  I really wanted a pizza . . . now I kinda want anything that I would normally have just to have a treat . . . for now we are not having takeout of any kind, so I am making pizza.  I don’t make the dough.  Dough and I have a love-hate relationship; I LOVE to eat it, but I HATE to “deal” with it.  It always just sticks to my hands and I can’t deal with that.  People say to use more flour but then I just end up with flour all over the place and dough stuck to my hands.  A friend who used to make pizza every Friday night says she uses a bit of oil.  I tried that and realized it works.  So I use more than a bit of oil.  At first I was just putting it in the bowl with the dough (bringing it to room temperature seems like a must) and flouring the pan, but then I decided to put oil on the pan.  My niece gave me the idea to use parchment paper to roll out the dough because I was ending up with dough all over my hands AND my rolling pin.  I have to put oil on the parchment paper so it doesn’t stick, but I am able to just wipe the roller off because there is no dough or even oil on it at all.  Parchment paper (and my niece) to the rescue.  So this isn’t really a recipe, it is just me showing how I “make” pizza.  And the terrible job shaping that I do.

I take the one ball of dough and split it to make two pizzas . . . a his and a hers.

I LOVE mushrooms on my pizza and I prefer they get cooked FIRST, so I have to cook the mushrooms.  I don’t really LOVE tomato sauce so I usually just put that on my husband’s pizza.  I just use a bit of olive oil.  Most times it is just mozzarella and mushrooms, sometimes breakfast sausage.  But I asked for Ricotta (my husband does the shopping) and they didn’t have the regular kind and my husband bought some out of the deli case.  I don’t know about your grocery store, but things in the deli case at our supermarket tend to be the more “gourmet” kind of stuff and definitely more expensive.  This ricotta was sooooooo good.  It was so smooth and creamy.  Yum.  I wish I would have noticed the lid was upside down when I took the pictures.  I turned the tub so I could read the side but didn’t even notice the lid.  I was focused on the reflection of the pizza dough label.  (Ok, so I can’t take pictures NOR deal with pizza dough!)

I wrote a post about DIY pizza in August 2018, I mentioned thinking the dough needs to be cold . . . it seems easier to handle but the instructions and my professional pizza making friends says it needs to be room temp so when I remember that is what I try to do.

So . . . how do YOU deal with pizza dough?  Do you make your own?  Do you roll it or do you stretch it?  What is your favorite pizza topping?

The edges were getting too crispy on this so they were picked off before I thought to take a picture . . . then after it was cooked I completely forgot about taking pictures!
