2 1/4 tablespoons active dry yeast (usually equals to 1 packet)
1 pinch granulated sugar
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon white or red wine
Once formed into balls, the dough can stay frozen for up to 1 month.
Recipe from www.justeatlife.com
Mix yeast and sugar in warm water. Set aside in a warm area for about 5-8 min. until mixture appears foamy. Add wine just before mixing into flour.
In a separate bowl, mix flour and salt until well combined. Then slowly drizzle in yeast mixture while gently mixing with a fork. Halfway through mixing, drizzle a little bit of olive oil. Switch to mixing with your hands and knead the dough until you no longer see extra flour.
Coat dough with some olive oil, loosely cover bowl with a damp towel or plastic wrap, and let rise for about 1 - 2 hours.
Once the dough has visible risen, punch down to let air escape and divide into as many balls as needed.
5 medium slices bacon (cooked and drained of excess oil)
1 cup whole milk ricotta
1/2 cup parmesan
4 heaped tablespoons honey
1 pinch red chili flakes
scallions (thinly sliced on the diagonal )
salt & pepper
flour (for dusting surface)
3 cloves garlic (coarsely chopped)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit.
Knead dough on clean, well-floured surface with your hands pushing from the middle, outward, and turning until it feels slightly firm. You may stretch the dough by holding it in two hands like a steering wheel, letting the weight pull down as you turn the dough. Alternatively, you can use a rolling pin pushing from the middle to the edges. Stretch until you achieve desired thinness and shape. When all your toppings are ready, transfer to a baking sheet greased with a small amount of olive oil.
Combine ricotta, 2 tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan, salt, and pepper. Add dollops spread evenly across dough. Sprinkle a little more parmesan all over.
Crumble cooked bacon all on top.
Place in oven on the lowest rack, and bake for about 15-20 min. or until the edges are slightly golden and the cheese is bubbling.
Meanwhile in a small pot on low heat, add honey and red chili flakes. Once the honey is runny, turn off heat and set aside.
Once pizza is slightly golden brown and bubbly, move to the top rack and continue baking until extra golden brown and crispy (about 5 min).
Remove pizza from oven, top with scallions and spicy honey, and extra cheese if you'd like. Enjoy!
