College Kid Pizza Dough Recipe

[Once Again no Picture! Ryan is lazy on Mondays.]

It’s time for another recipe, this one straight from the subject’s own recipe book (his girlfriend’s really) as we dive into a nice simple recipe for Pizza dough.  Or as I like to call it College Kid Pizza Dough.

tsp = teaspoon

Tbsp = Tablespoon

lbs = Pounds

Mince = chop into very small pieces

Diced = You chop the thing into roughly square like shapes

Cubed = Actually what it says, cut the ingredients into rough cubes, much bigger than diced

Sliced = Cut into thin broad strips (usually circles)

Chopped = to cut into small pieces with repeated blows

Saute = cook with oil

Fold = Mix the ingredients by scooping the bottom of the mix onto the top of the mix.

Reserve = Hold on/Don’t discard. Usually a liquid that is normally considered waste.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp active Dry Yeast (Or 1 packet)
  • 1 Cup Warm Water – NOT HOT
  • 2.5 cups of Flour
  • 2 Tbsp of oil
  • 1 Tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • PAM/Non-Stick Spray
  • Pizza Toppings of Choice – Normally I’d still try to tell you what toppings to buy but this recipe is so simple I think it’ll be fun for you to tell us what you added. [If comments aren’t working yet, email us at podcastlostinspace@gmail.com]

Necessary Equipment

  • 1 Medium bowl
  • Cooking sheet/pizza sheet
  • Rolling Pin
  • Oven – Heated to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit (375 for Convection Ovens)
  • Measure Utensils

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit (375 for Convection Ovens)
  2. In the bowl add the warm water and dissolve the yeast into it. Let sit for a few minutes so yeast can activate. (If you didn’t know yeast is actually living microbes. Their farts as they eat sugar are what make bread rise)
  3. Add the Flour, Oil, Sugar and Salt to the Bowl
  4.  Stir with spoon until there’s none to little flour visible. You should have a nice dough ball-ish thing
  5. Before rolling the dough, sprinkle flour onto the surface to help prevent sticking
  6. Roll the dough.
  7. Spread the dough onto the the pan before you put toppings on it. Thickness is to preference
  8. Add desired toppings.
  9. Cook for about 15 Minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.
