New York Style Pizza - Dough Recipe
 
 
This recipe will make enough dough for 4-9" or 2-12" pies. It is prepared using a stand mixer with a dough hook. You may have to adjust your preparation method to suit your equipment.
 
Ingredients:  
3 cup    Flour (I use Gold Medal Better for Bread enriched white)  
1/2 cup    yellow cornmeal  
1 package    active dry yeast  
1 Tbs    sugar  
1/2 tsp    Crushed kosher salt  
2 Tbs    Olive oil (Use the good stuff)  
1 cup    Water  
 
Preparation Directions:
1 In a measuring cup add cup 105F water and the sugar. Mix to dissolve.
2 Add the yeast and mix to dissolve. Set aside.
3 To a mixer bowl add the flour, cornmeal, salt, olive oil, and the sugar. Mix well to blend.
4 When the foam on the yeast mixture reaches the cup mark (10-15 minutes) add it to the bowl and set mixer to stir.
5 Using the measuring cup, slowly add water until a tacky (not sticky) dough has formed.
6 Roll dough out onto a floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic (3-5 minutes).
7 Place in a lightly oiled (olive oil) bowl, roll to coat, and cover with a hand towel. Place in a warm spot and allow to rise until doubled in size (1-2 hours).
Special Instructions::
1 Rising time can be shortened to 45-75 minutes by using a warmed oven. Preheat the oven on warm and then turn off. Add the covered bowl to the oven only when you can grab and hold the oven grate with your bare hand without undue discomfort.
