Pizza Crust

We haven’t made homemade pizza in a very long time, but for quite awhile we made this recipe and two pizzas every two Sundays. One would go in the freezer and the we’d have the other tea and a slice or two for breakfast on Monday or Tuesday.  I stumbled into the recipe for the crust last weekend and made a note to add it to online recipes so I won’t lose it again.  I think when we make it again, we might do smaller versions as we’re eating less these days – and this crust is definitely not low calorie or low carb. It is, however VERY thick and tasty.  I’m going to use it as a base for small salmon / garlic mini pizzas today.

Recipe type: Baking
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2 large pizzas
Ingredients
  • 290 ml (1¼ C) water
  • 3 T Olive Oil
  • 1t Sugar or Splenda
  • 2 t Yeast
  • 500 g (3¾ C) Unbleached Plain Flour
  • ½ t Salt
  • Handful dried onion flakes
  • Herbs to taste - I use about a T each of oregano, basil, mixed Italian seasonings and chilli flakes.
Instructions
  1. If using a bread machine, put the ingredients in the machine in the order recommended. (Usually either all the dry ingredients first or the wet first). Set it for dough and let it do it's thing.
  2. If using a TMX or a Bellini (or any other brand of thermomixer, add the water, oil, sugar, and  yeast, then flour, salt, onion flakes and herbs. Blend on Speed 7 for 5 seconds then knead for 5 minutes (Speed 3 on the Bellini). Let rest for 15 minutes, then punch down and knead to remove the air and gas in the dough then shape into balls and into pizza bases. Allow to rise to double size before adding toppings.
  3. We don't use a tomato based sauce. Instead I spread about a tablespoon of olive oil on the base and then add about 2T finely diced garlic before adding cheese and toppings and ending with more cheese.
  4. Bake in a hot oven (220c or 450f) for about 25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly all over.

19Jul21  Potato soup with a garlic bread crouton.  I had several bread ends stored in the freezer so decided it was time to make some croutons with them. I used the airfryer and after coating the front side with garlic butter, put them in the airfryer on low for 10 minutes at a time until they were done, rearranging them after each 10 min period. They turned out really nice and I've broken them up into pieces and stored them in the freezer for future uses.  #croutonsfrombreadends #garlic croutons #potatosoup #eventualbreadcrumbs #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer
10Jul21 Sometimes you just crave a big bowl of roasted veggies. Today was that kind of day. Zucchini, red and green capsicum, onion and mushrooms.  I added the last two items for the last 5 minutes so they wouldn't get over cooked. Delicious! #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer #baking #2021pad
8Jul21 Garlic Steak and Rice Blend with a veg on the side (not shown). The rice blend is brown, wild and red rice. I just love this blend.  #2021pad #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer
24Jun21 This sauce is so darn good!  It's not overhot but has fantastic flavour. I just hope by the time I make use of my frozen 'naked' chicken wings, I'll have some of this left to pour over them.  It's been great to have on salads and as a dip for veggies. (Not sponsored) #cooking #cookingforone #franksredhot #buffalosauce @franksredhot_aus

23Jun21 Leftover beef roast, egg noodles, broccoli and mushrooms.  This was a 'strange mix' but it turned out really nice and made for a nice one plate / bowl meal.  #2021pad #cooking #cookingforone
