Pizza Dough

4 cupsGiusto's Organic 00 Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 ½ cup Beer, room temperature
2 teaspoonsYeast in 1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoonsOlive oil


Place pizza stone in cool oven/BBQ to preheat. The stone will crack otherwise.

Add all ingredients to a large bowl and knead dough for 7-8 minutes, sprinkling in additional flour as necessary.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead again for a few minutes.

For individual adult-size pizzas, divide into 5 portions and form into balls. For larger pizza's, divide into fewer portions.

Drizzle tray/dough box with olive oil and spread evenly. Sprinkle top of dough balls with olive oil.

Cover and leave to rest for at least 20 minutes.

Set oven to highest temperature possible. Or 600-700 for BBQ.

Stretch each raised dough portion onto small piece of parchment paper and top as desired. (Photo shows fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil. )

Slide pizza, parchment paper and all, onto preheated stone. It will take 5-15 min to cook dependent upon temperature (and how often you open the oven/BBQ to check on it).
