So I've recently started baking bread, and have had some good success using a simple recipe.

4 cups AP flour
1 Tbsp salt
1 1/5 to 2 cups water
1 package ADY

I've made a few loaves and got a good crust, and a light airy crumb.


So I wanted to try making pizza.  I used the same recipe, adding 1 Tbsp EVOO to the dough.  I made and kneaded the dough, and put in the fridge for 24 hours to rise/ferment.

I stretched/shaped the dough, put on toppings, and baked on a sheet pan, as I don't have a stone (yet).

Turned out pretty good.  Dough has good flavor, but it's a bit dense. 

I'm thinking of adding a little sugar next time, and getting a stone to help with the baking.

Thanks for all the info here, sorry I can't post pictures.
Large Pepperoni, Extra Cheese, to go.

I don't have a camera to take the pictures.   I am technology challenged.

Just now eating leftovers.  Delicious.  Crust has a lot of flavor.
