I’m not sure what’s gone wrong with my favorite store bought pizza dough, but it’s been very wet and sticky for months now. Before the kids were born, I made our pizza dough and I’ve been talking about getting back to that. This is pushing me over the edge.
A while back I tried The Frugal Girl’s pizza dough recipe. I like her potato bread recipe so I thought this one might work out. But, it tasted too much like saltine crackers and I wasn’t overly fond of the texture either. I got so annoyed last week that I bought the Wegman’s pizza dough. It was worse. The texture was fine, but the taste was all off.
The pizza dough I used to make was from the old William’s Sonoma Bread cookbook. It was fine, but nothing spectacular. I can do better.
I’ve found six recipes on the internet that come recommended (in the order I intend to try them):
- Peter Reinhart’s Napoletana Pizza Dough
- Refrigerator Bread
- Peter Reinhart’s Neo-Neopolitan Pizza Dough
- King Arthur Flour’s The Easiest Pizza You’ll Ever Make
- Roberta’s Pizza Dough
- Hacker-Free Neapolitan Pizza for a Home Kitchen
This seemed like a good month to get started on trying these since we’ll be eating a lot of quick, late dinners – i.e., pizza. I’m going to aim for one every 1-2 weeks and I’ll let you know how they go. Of course if I come to one that is just to die for, I may not get to the rest!
