Homemade Pizza

Getting the family together in the kitchen for meal prep is a fun way to teach your kids something new. Think of it as an all encompassing classroom lesson that touches on art, science, economics & social skills all rolled into a fabulous time. Prepare the pizza dough up to 3 days in advance for effortless mealtime solutions any day of the week. Don’t stop with just cheese & pepperoni for toppings. Get creative & make your own handcrafted masterpiece. Gouda, Fontina & Havarti offer indulgent cheese selections.
Pair with cooked & crumbled breakfast sausage for a tasty idea. Sprinkle with arugula & fresh basil after baking to take it over the top.

makes 2 1/2 lbs dough

A refrigerator-rise dough is simple to make & develops more complex flavors the longer it rests. Be sure to place in an extra large bowl as it will expand a good bit. 

2 cups warm water {about 105 degrees}
1 envelope active dry yeast
5 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey

Stir together the water & the yeast in a measuring cup. Let stand for 5 minutes. The mixture should be dissolved & foamy on the surface. Whisk together the flour & the salt in the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer. Add the yeast mixture, the oil & the honey.
Blend on Medium speed for 5 minutes. Stop the mixer & scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle a little flour over the dough. Remove with a bowl scrapper onto a lightly floured board. Form the dough into a ball. Place it in a large lightly greased bowl. Coat the surface with cooking spray & cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 3 days.

Punch the dough down. Remove it from the bowl & place on a floured surface. It will feel heavy. Shape into a large dough ball. Divide the dough in half. Divide the dough into 10 {4-oz} pieces. Use a kitchen scale for accuracy, if desired. Roll each piece into a ball on a lightly floured surface. Place 5 dough balls 2-inches apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Lightly grease the dough & cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise in a warm spot 1 hour. The dough will not double in bulk however, you will notice bubbling under the smooth surface. It should be room temperature to the touch when ready. Use as directed in individual recipe applications.
