The perfect pizza for Valentine's or any special day.
Step 1: Ingredients
Pizza Dough (Use the recipe below or purchase a kit/pre-made dough)
1 package dry instant active yeast
1 cup warm water
1/2 tablespoon sugar
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoon olive oil
A pinch of salt
*Combine the yeast, warm water, sugar, and 1/2 cup of flour in a bowl. Stir and allow to sit until bubbly, around 15-20 minutes. Add in the remaining 2 cups of flour, olive oil, and salt. Form the dough into a ball and turn onto a floured surface. Knead the dough for 10 minutes, adding only enough flour to keep the dough from sticking to your surface. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with greased plastic wrap. Allow to rise for 2 hours in a warm area. Punch the dough back into a ball and wrap in the greased wrap. Refrigerate until needed.
1 cup pizza sauce (homemade or store bought)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 TB olive oil
1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1. When you are ready to make your pizza, flour a large surface.
2. Flatten the dough into a disc with your hands.
3. Roll the dough along your balled fists, stretching it out gently until it is to your desired thinness.
