I am in love with this Homemade Pizza Dough. Believe me when I say that I have purchased many pizza doughs from the grocery store and they are all not nearly as good as this humble recipe. The premade doughs in the deli case at our supermarket won’t roll out. The ones in the cans that you pop open taste just like the rolls that you pop open – not good. The ones in the bread aisle are usually dried out and tough. But not this dough.
In five minutes you will have a new favorite pizza dough recipe for your recipe box. Print it out! Stick it somewhere close by! This Homemade Pizza Dough will transform your Friday night pizza night from predictable to rip-roaring and wondrous. (In all honesty, I’m probably overstating a bit here but I know you will love this Homemade Pizza Dough compared to others when you try it.)
Homemade Pizza Dough is a Simple Food
Pizza originated in Naples, Italy in the late 1700’s. It was a humble food meant for inexpensive and quick eating. Street vendors and casual restaurants first served pizza in Naples but the upper class found it to be a “disgusting” food because workers ate it with their hands on the go. It wasn’t until 100 years later when Queen Margherita visited Naples with King Umberto that pizza became fashionable. Growing tired of the fancy fare on her extended trip, the queen decided to try street fare. She loved it and as a result, the Margherita pizza with tomato sauce, basil and mozzarella cheese bears her name.
Make Some Interesting Combinations
You can try different flours in the recipe, add seasonings to the dough, and of course, try endless variations of toppings. I always enjoy making recipes that I consider restaurant or store-bought foods. Pizza has always been one of those foods until this recipe came along for me. Now I look forward to the creativity of pizza night with my Homemade Pizza Dough.
