My son asked for pizza the other night. I don't like ordering pizza. It's just too expensive - and I don't see what a meal that was invented to use up the leftovers in a kitchen should all a sudden cost $20 .
For me, it's back to basics - and leftovers....
This time I was trying a recipe I had found on King Arthur Flour a while back: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/pizza-crust-recipe
It was late when I started making it, but I told my son that it would only take about an hour to make, so it would not be much longer than what it would take for a delivery to get here.
Unfortunately, I didn't read the full recipe before I made that promise... This recipe calls for 2 (count them - 2) 90 minute rises. So this will take longer than your standard delivery time.
Needless to say, my kids were less than amused when I figured that out at 8 PM....
Luckily, King Arthur Flour has another pizza crust recipe:
We had the "now or later pizza" that night.
We had the other one the next day - and it was good! It had a nice thick crust reminiscent of restaurant pizza. And, if you like a pizza dough that tastes slightly yeasty, this is the pizza crust for you.
Sorry, no pictures. The pizza was gone before I got a chance to take pictures.
