No-Knead Pizza Dough
Here’s the No-Knead Pizza Dough recipe (adapted from Jim Lahey, Co.) that everybody’s been talking about. Notice the extra-long rest time. While you can’t decide to make this last minute, it certainly is an easy recipe for a great tasting dough with a fabulous texture.
1. In a large bowl, mix the flour with the yeast and salt. Add the water and stir until blended (the dough will be very sticky). Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 12 to 24 hours in a warm spot, about 70°.
2. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and lightly sprinkle the top with flour. Fold the dough over on itself once or twice, cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest for 15 minutes.
3. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Generously sprinkle a clean cotton towel with flour and cover the dough balls with it. Let the dough rise for 2 hours.
4. Stretch or toss the dough into the desired shape, cover with toppings and bake on top of a very hot pizza stone.
|Yield:||4 12-inch pizza crusts|
