I have mentioned before about making pizza at home and some of you had asked me to post it as well. And me being me, took only a little more than a year to post it. So without any further adieu or preamble, here goes.
2 1/4 tsp Yeast (I use dry active)
2 tsp Sugar
6 cups of whole wheat flour (Note: You can do half whole wheat and half All Purpose, for a lighter crust and you can use just All Purpose flour as well.)
1 cup warm milk (or enough to knead the dough)
2 tsp of Olive Oil
Mix sugar and yeast to 1/2 cup of luke warm water and let it froth up. Mix the above yeast mixture with flour.
Add warm milk and knead the dough. Knead it for about 5 minutes till the dough is soft and elastic.
Coat olive oil on the dough ball and the container wall
Cover the container with a tight lid and leave it in a warm spot in your house (or oven) and let it rise overnight
Punch down the dough and leave it to rise in the refrigerator (after blanketing the dough with plastic wrap and covering the container with a tight lid) and let it raise multiple times.
Note: The longer the dough is let to sit, the better the pizza is; so prepare the dough atleast couple of days in advance.
The pizza dough is now ready. You can divide the dough into 4-5 equal balls, and roll out to a circle of about 8-12 inches diameter, evenly.
At this stage, you can add sauce, cheese & toppings of your choice to the pizza.
Pizza has to be baked in a pre-heated oven (500° F) for about 10 minutes.
