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!
