The PERFECT pizza dough recipe! I use this for EVERYTHING.... from making 2 large pizza's to making a full square tray of pizza, to making bread-sticks! I even make my own pizza rolls, stuffed calazone's and pizza rolls with this recipe. I LOVE IT!
Ingredients: 3/4 cup warm milk 2 tsp instant yeast 3-4 cups of bread flour (start with 3, then add flour little by little until your dough is perfect!) 1/3 cup sugar pinch of salt 2 tbs melted butter 2 egg yolks
egg whites set aside to coat the bread before baking.
Follow the Pizza Dough Recipe, listed below. Then, after it’s risen….. do the following with the dough:
Ingredients: 1 beaten egg white 1-2 packages Pepperoni 1-block mozzarella cheese, grated Pizza Seasoning….. recipe posted on page.
Lay out your dough. stretch it out, forming a square. You can even use your rolling pin to make it easier. Sprinkle a good layer of cheese. Top cheese with a good layer of pepperoni….making sure the entire dough surface is covered. Then sprinkle additional cheese on top of pepperoni. Sprinkle pizza seasoning. then roll the dough tightly into a roll shape…. starting at one end, rolling tightly. Pinch dough seam together. tuck ends in and pinch together. flip over roll, baste with beaten egg white…then sprinkle pizza spice on dough. cut air vents/slits into the top. Bake in a 400 degree oven for roughly 30 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool slightly to make slicing easier.
