Rosie Daley's Pizza Dough

"This makes a very delicious pizza dough. It's supposed to make 8 individual pizza crusts, but I made one large pizza crust. I also used all-purpose flour for the entire recipe instead of semolina. I used a Kitchenaid mixer instead of a food processor.I didn't bake the crusts before I added the topping, and instead topped it and baked the pizza for 20 to 30 minutes or so at 400.Recipe courtesy of In the Kitchen with Rosie, Oprah's Favorite Recipes."

  • Mix the water and honey together in a medium stainless steel bowl.
  • Sprinkle the yeast on top and set it aside for about 20 minutes to proof, until bubbles form on the surface.
  • Put the flour, semolina, and salt into the bowl of a food processor.
  • Turn the machine on and slowly add the yeast mixture through the feed tube.
  • Process for about a minute, until a dough ball forms, drizzling a little additional water into the feed tube if necessary.
  • Continue to process for another 2 minutes.
  • Rub the surface of a large bowl with the olive oil.
  • Transfer the dough ball to the ball and roll it in the oil to coast.
  • Cover with a towel and set the bowl aside in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove the dough to a work surface that has been dusted with cornmeal and roll out evenly to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.
  • Cut out eight 5 1/2 inch circles, using a sharp knife and a saucer of that circumference.
  • Spray a cookie sheet 3 times with the vegetable oil to coat and put the pizza rounds onto the sheet.
  • Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until golden.
  • Remove the baked crusts from the oven and add the topping variation of your choice.

I love to try new recipes, and this is a wonderful site to find new additions. I rarely make the same thing twice because it's so much fun to try something different. My life long dream is to travel the world and eat my way around it.
