andrewjrichards asked: Yo dude, would you send me a simple pizza recipe? Like, dough / sauce / oven temp etc? Yours always look so good.
- 500g flour (preferably bread flour or “00” flour, but AP works)
- 1g quick-rise yeast
- 16g kosher salt
- 350g water
Mix with a wooden spoon or your hands until fully incorporated. It’ll be a bit sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for at least 18 hours, preferably more.
Pull the dough out onto a floured surface and split into 3 even pieces. You can freeze extra dough, just take it out of the freezer the morning you want to make pizza and let it come back up to room temp.
Form into a rough circle, then pick it up and start to gently stretch it, using your fists to slowly pull it apart. You get the hang of it by just doing it a couple times, or there are plenty of videos available to show you how.
- 1 can peeled tomatoes (preferably San Marzano or Roma)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 big pinches of kosher salt
You can doctor this up however you want (garlic, oregano, basil, etc) but put this stuff in a food processor or blender and you have your basic sauce.
You’re going to want a pizza stone or pizza steel, even a cheap one, because you need a nice hot surface. Put the stone on a rack in the second to highest position in the oven. Preheat the oven as hot as it will go (550F on mine) for 30 minutes, then turn on the broiler for another 15. Using a floured peel, slide the pizza onto the stone and cook until slightly charred, turning if necessary, 5-7 minutes.
