How to make it

  • For the dough: (Note: this can also be done in your bread machine, just put the wet ingredients in first and use the dough cycle on your machine)
  • 1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in 1/4 cup of the warm water.
  • 2. In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the flour and the salt. Add the oil, yeast mixture, and the remaining 3/4 cup of water and mix on low speed until the dough comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl and clusters around the dough hook, about 5 minutes. (The pizza dough can also be made in a food processor. Dissolve the yeast as above. Combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse once or twice, add the remaining ingredients, and process until the dough begins to form a ball.)
  • Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface and knead by hand 2 or 3 minutes longer. The dough should be smooth and firm. Cover the dough with a clean, damp towel and let it rise in a warm spot for about 30 minutes. (When ready, the dough will stretch as it is lightly pulled.)
  • Divide dough into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a 4 inch circle (or as thin as you like your crust). Don't worry about it being a perfect circle, rustic looks cool. Transfer dough circles to olive oil greased baking sheets.
  • Top each dough circle with the toppings, in order as above. Finish with a light drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and fresh cracked pepper.
  • Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes, or until dough turns golden brown. Serve warm. Can be a light dinner with mixed baby green salad w/balsamic or red wine vinaigrette on the side

    You nailed it. Trader Joes is the thing (besides my family) that I miss most. buffalo does not have a traderjoes. pathetic.

    these sound sooo good. thanks again!! Wow!! When you are tired of catering, put together a cookbook with these highly delish jewels of food.
