Food Processor Pizza Dough

Posted on September 24th, 2010  |  Filed under Episode 120 « Sara's Weeknight Meals Season 1

Makes about 4 servings
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Total preparation time: 45 minutes

2 to 2 1/2 cups unsifted, unbleached all-purpose flour
One 1/4-ounce package quick-rising yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade. Add 3/4 cup very warm water (120 to 130 F) and the oil; process until a soft dough forms. Add as much of the remaining flour, 1/4 cup at time, as necessary to make the dough manageable.

Shape the dough in a ball and place in an oiled bowl, turning so an oiled surface is up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 35 minutes. Use as directed in a recipe.

Everything I have read says plain old water works just fine.

I have not, but I have heard that it will work just fine. And if you have finicky eaters who say they don’t like whole wheat bread or at least don’t like the way it looks, you can buy white whole wheat flour from King Arthur flour.

Yes, I was referring to the pizza dough. Don’t you love King Arthur flour? If you ever have the time go visit them in Vermont and take a class. I learned so much!
