One of the most important parts of a delicious grilled pizza or a traditional homemade pizza for that matter is the pizza crust. If the crust tastes like dry cardboard it doesn’t matter how great the combination of cheese and topping are your homemade pizza isn’t going to be very appetizing. The key to a great homemade pizza is a homemade pizza dough recipe.
One of my cooking passions is homemade pizza dough or homemade bread. I love combining some rather boring ingredients like flour, yeast and a liquid to turn it into something extraordinary like the perfect homemade pizza dough, garlic rosemary bread or flat bread gordita.
I’ve been making homemade breads for over 20 years. To be honest and I may be giving away my age here but it’s more like close to 30 years.
I’ve learned a few things experimenting with recipes.
This homemade pizza dough recipe comes from a combination of recipes and of making adjustments.
I’ve included directions for making this homemade pizza dough recipe with a stand mixer or without a stand mixer. I know not everyone owns a stand mixer. It’s a very expensive investment and if you do not bake often there isn’t a reason to own one.
A stand mixer makes the kneading a little easier. But to be honest sometimes I just want to roll back my sleeves and knead the dough by hand. So even though I have a very nice Kitchenaid Artisan mixer sometimes I don’t use it.
