Well, its been quite some time since I've posted. Got REAL frustrated trying to make a good sauce. So, anyway, this pizza turned out GREAT!! I had to use sauce from one of our local pizza joints but other than that, this is the best one to date. I found this recipe on the net. I used 1 1/2 tsp IDY instead of 1/4 ounce ady, let sit overnight in the fridge, dusted with cornmeal, and baked on a stone. I'm sure the yeast content is too high, especially since this is designed to use that day. The dough was a tad thick, but it was great. The spices really add to it. Would also love to see this put into bakers % someday....?? (Hint - Petezza
Anyway, I'm back at it! The second pic is a little blurry-I know.
1/4 ounce active dry yeast
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
