European Style Pizza

by Pooja Verma

1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons yeast
4 1/4 cups bread flour


Combine the milk, water, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl and heat to 110 degrees F. Add the yeast, stir well and let sit 10 minutes to develop. Add the oil and flour and mix for 8 minutes on medium low speed in a mixer. After mixing, cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap and proof twice, each time letting it double in bulk before knocking it down. Once the dough has proofed twice, turn it out onto a floured surface. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions of about 11 ounces each. Form into rounds, let them rest 10 minutes, then form into round pizza shapes. You then may place the dough on a baking pan or a wooden baker’s peel used to transfer the dough on to an oven baking brick. The dough will be slightly sticky, don’t add extra flour, this is the way it should be.

Now let’s add some toppings:

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees F. Bake it at a very high temperature in a wood burning oven for about 8 minutes or until it is puffed up and golden brown. Any topping can be added. Cut the pizza into 8 pieces using a pizza cutter.
