I’m feeling a lot better. This afternoon I rested on the couch and cuddled with Dexter for about an hour and then visited my parents for awhile. Since I was already out I decided to just stop at the grocery store for the pizza sauce….somehow kneading dough always brings a smile to my face!
As I was working, I sipped on a glass of the goode stuff 😉
I think I’ve blogged about this fab-ulous half-whole-wheat pizza dough recipe before here but just in case yall didn’t get it the first time, here it is! Trust me, this is the good(e) stuff!
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1.5 cups whole wheat flour
- 1.5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1.5 tsp sea salt
- 1 packet dry yeast
- 1 1/3 cups warm water
All you do is pour the warm water into a bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over and let dissolve. Sprinkle over the salt and then add the flour. Set on low speed with the dough attachment on a KitchenAid or knead by hand.
While you are kneading (or mixing with the KitchenAid) add the olive oil. Knead by hand for about eight minutes or on medium high speed on the machine for four minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
Cover the bowl with a dishcloth and set in a warm spot to rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.
After the dough has risen, weigh out the amount you want to use, cover with toppings and bake at 500 for about 15 minutes! Easy peasy!
Mine was tres bonne! 🙂
I put my Lindt Fleur Du Sel bar out of its misery—
Edited to add: Any bay area or Cali readers want to come meet me, drink wine and support my cause on my trip? (yes you do) Just got word that on Sunday, July 19th, there will be a tasting at the Murphy-Goode headquarters and I can invite my friends (you guys)! I’ll remind you of this again as we get closer but do I have any potential takers? It should be really, really fun AND you guys can taste for free if you are there for me! 🙂
