New York-Style Pizza Dough
A simple and basic recipe that gives anyone longing for New York's famous pizza something to truly enjoy! Add some flavor to your dough by incorporating seasonings such as oregano or garlic powder (1/2 teaspoon of each is more than enough). The dough can also be frozen for longer storage.
Bread flour is high in gluten and essential for a great pizza. You may substitute with all purpose flour if necessary but it won't turn out as great.
When rolling out the dough, brush the edges with melted butter, prebake it at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 8 minutes, add desired sauce and toppings, and brush the edges again with melted butter and finely minced garlic for extra flavor. Bake at 425 for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
Using a pizza stone that's very lightly brushed in olive oil for baking helps the bottom brown and get a crispy texture.
