Daring Bakers October – Pizza Dough

My friend SS looooooves pizza, so as soon as I saw the challenge for this month, I knew he would want to be a part of it.

The dough itself was BEAUTIFUL.  It was easily the best dough I’ve ever worked with before.  It was soft, pliable, smooth, and wonderful.  I just wanted to keep touching it!

Tossing it was a lot of fun.  Some people found the dough to be too soft, but I didn’t really have that problem. I did manage to get a video of SS tossing the dough. =)

Basic Pizza Dough

“Basic Pizza Dough” from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice by Peter Reinhart

I cut the dough into 4 pieces instead of 6.


Awesome!  4.5 stars out of 5.  We all wished the crust was a little crispier, but I think that would have been accomplished if I had a baking stone, which is hardly the dough’s fault.

  4. Great Idea, I love the video and he did a much better job tossing than I did.

  5. I’ve heard great things about that provel cheese. I’ll have to try and find some. Great job on your dough; maybe I’ll give it a second try sometime.
