From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.
This dough is super sticky, but I think it's worth
it. It makes a soft chewy crust. I use it to make
Broccoli Pizza, but I admit, I haven't made a
"normal" pizza with it yet.
In a bread machine:
2 1/4 c flour
sprinkle of salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 c warm water (I microwave it for 1 min.)
3/4 tsp yeast
Put on pizza dough setting.
This makes a VERY sticky dough.
Using your hands, coat a bowl with oil.
With oiled hands, pull dough out of bread pan
into oiled bowl. It will be a sticky mess.
Gently roll dough in bowl until completely
coated in oil. It won't be as sticky, but it'll be
Coat a pizza stone with cornmeal or pizza pan
Dump dough (I literally turn the bowl upside
down & let it fall) onto the prepared surface.
Using your hand, flatten the dough out a bit.
Gently work the dough outward. I leave the
edge a little thicker than the center.
Cover with toppings & bake.
I have not made a "normal" pizza with this yet.
I use it to make Broccoli Pizza which bakes at
425 for 20 minutes. A traditional pizza won't
take this long. I'd bake a traditional pizza at
450. It's done when the cheese turns golden.

Roll the dough to
completely coat it in
oil. Will be very soft.
I cover a pizza stone
with cornmeal. Or you
could coat a pan with
oil to prevent sticking.
Plop the oiled dough in
the center. Flatten.

The crust is light, soft & chewy.
