I know I already posted a pizza crust recipe, but I came across a new recipe that is a million times better than any other homemade pizza crust recipe I have ever come across. Ok, that may be a bit of a hyperbole, but it is super delicious! I've been posting a lot of recipes from Tammy's Recipes lately, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I found this recipe on her site as well. This recipe uses less flour than other recipes I've found, so it's pretty sticky, but you must resist the urge to add too much flour!!! Also, you don't have to wait for the dough to rise, so you don't have to start making it too far in advance!
Pizza Crust 2
1 cup warm water (110-115 degrees)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2-3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp yeast
In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the hook attachment, combine water, sugar, and salt. Add 2 cups flour and yeast; mixing until a soft dough forms. It should resemble a dough. If it's too runny, gradually add more flour until you get a dough (though it will be soft and sticky). Run the mixer on medium for a couple of minutes. Alternatively, you may mix the ingredients by hand, then knead on a clean, floured surface for 5-10 minutes.
If using a metal pan, butter pan, then roll or stretch dough out over surface. Since the dough is sticky, you'll want to keep your fingertips well buttered. Simply melt a couple tablespoons of butter in a bowl and dip your fingers in periodically. This will not only prevent the dough from sticking to your hands, but will also add some delicious flavor to the crust! If you're feeling particularly daring, mince a clove or two of garlic and add it to the melted butter.
