Pizza has been a takeout staple for years but if you want to get creative, we’re going to show you how we make our homemade pizza dough so you can make it yourself! You just need a few basic ingredients to get the perfect slice in your own home. It just takes flour, salt, water and yeast to achieve this pizza perfection.
Mix! Mix! Mix!
Combine flour and water and mix for approximately 10 minutes. Then continue to mix while adding the yeast in for an additional 5 minutes. Finally, mix in the salt for a final 10 minutes.
The perfect pizza dough doesn’t exist without letting your dough set for at least a few hours so that the dough may rise and the yeast may develop.
Prep Your Work Station
Dough will stick to anything if you give it the chance. By prepping your work station with flour you will be making sure your pizza doesn’t destroy your counter. Be sure not to over flour your work station as it may make the dough tough.
Stretch it out!
In order to prevent more shrinking you must first press down in the center of your dough with your palm and work your way out while forming the crust. Lift up the dough and continue to stretch it with your hands.
Top it off!
Once you’re finished stretching your dough it’s time for toppings! Make sure to start with a strong sauce base and then continue to add some of your favorites.
Turn up the heat!
Not everyone can have a pizza oven in their kitchen. So be sure that your oven is hot enough to keep that crispy crust! And enjoy your homemade slice – Spuntino style!
