Book: Pizza Doughs and Crusts

The fastest of my pizza doughs, Speedy Dough can be prepared from start to finish during the 30 minutes it takes for the oven to preheat. The recipe calls for rapid-rise yeast, and the dough is kneaded for leass than a minute and rises only briefly. The result, surprisingly is a wonderful crisp, light crust.

Makes 4 large 8-inch pizzas.

  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 package active rapid-rise dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon date sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • 1 cup warm water
  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar. With a wooden spoon, beat in the egg and as much of the warm water as necessary to form a soft but not sticky dough.
  2. turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. With floured hands, knead the dough 10 times. Cover the dough with a clean towel and let it rest about 3o minutes.
  3. The dough is now ready to be patted, sretched or rolled according to the recipe.
