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.

21May20 Another evening watching telly in my bedroom.  I made myself some 'chicken vegetable' soup, but it turned out to be more chicken & carrots.  This is a collection of carrots! #2021pad #collection #cf21 #cooking #cookingforone #soup #chickensoup #carrots
10May21 Spaghetti and meatballs with tons of parmesan cheese. Plus my favourite beer (a Mother's Day gift from my kids!) to wash it down.  Pretty satisfying.  #cooking #cookingforone #beer #spaghetti #meatballs #2021pad
19May21 I had a craving for beef and noodles.  These didin't quite turn out as nice as my Mom's but it was still good. I used the Instant Pot to make everything but cooked the noodles separately.  #cooking #cookingforone #instantpot
22Mar21  When I opened  this package, it was after I partially thawed it because I fully expected the quesadillas to be stuck together as has been the case so many times in the past.  But!  See that piece of 'baking' paper between them?  I SUGGESTED that to Aldi and they actually listened to me.  Or maybe a few people suggested similar, but it's nice to be 'heard' and even nicer not to have two frozen quesadillas stuck together.  Thanks, @AldiAustralia !  #2021pad #muchlatergram #cooking #aldiaustralia #quesadillas
26Feb21 I made these!  These are LOW CARB chips (French fries) made with Kestrel potatoes.  This bowl full was just ONE potato.  And they were really good.  Instead of spraying the chips with oil, I used the “shake and bake” method. Except I used the air fryer.  I put the chips into a bag, put a tablespoon of oil in the bag then shook the bag to mix the oil onto the chips. Then tossed in chicken salt and gave it another shake.  THEN into the air fryer on the highest temperature and checked after 10 minutes and I think it took twenty minutes all together.  I’ll be making these again. #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer
23Feb21 Beef stir fry with ramen.  I tossed some frozen cut up green and red bell peppers (capsicum) in along with some soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. It came out lovely.  The beef strips were from @gdaymeat and I chopped them into bite size pieces.  These were very tender.  I'm thinking I'll order more next time. #2021pad #gdaymeat #ichoosesa #cooking #foodies #cookingforone
