I went Paleo- I felt great and I lost 25 pounds over a period of a few weeks. I slowy left 100% paleo and started putting other things back into my diet. Last night I made pizza for the family and I ate some. It was delicious despite me knowing what it is.
So now I eat sushi and of course I make and drink beer- even when I go back to paleo I won't give up my own beer.
Anyway enough of that crap. I mad amazing pizza last night. Simple margharita pizzas, 6 of them with home made crusts, sauce and garden basil.
5 cups or all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1/3 cup olive oil
1 3/4 cups very cold water( i put ice cubes in mine)
more flour for rolling and dusting
Combine dry ingredients in kitchen aid mixer bowl, then add wet ingredients and mix on medium-high until the dough pulls away from the sides.
remove from bowl onto floured surface
cut into 6 equally sized sections
I form mine into nice little spheres and set them on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet and into the fridge for at least 4 hours - 24 hours is ideal!
take them out, flour a cutting board/ work area and roll them out. they make beautifully thin pizzas!
Will make six 12 inch pizzas.
The sauce was simple: I blended up some garlic a few roma tomatoes and a bunch of basil. It was amazingly good.
These are best if allowed to work overnight in a fridge, ours only had a few hours to work but they were great .
