Recipe Review: “The Easiest Pizza You’ll Ever Make by King Arthur Flour” (5 stars)

Recipe: The Easiest Pizza You’ll Ever Make: King Arthur Flour.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Baked: January 27, 2014

Home Made PizzaMy most recent order from King Arthur Flour (taking advantage of one of their frequent free shipping promotions) included their Pizza Dough Flavor.  Since I wanted to take advantage of this new seasoning, I didn’t use my standard pizza crust mix found in King Arthur’s 200th Anniversary cookbook.  Instead, I searched through the recipes available at King Arthur’s website and decided to try the one listed above.

I cut the recipe in half, just like I do the one from the cookbook, because my husband and I don’t need to make two or three large pizzas.  One large one is plenty for a couple of meals.  I also don’t let the dough rise but for a few minutes, long enough for me to heat the oven up to 450 degrees.  Terry and I prefer thin, crispy crusts so rising is never a necessity.

I rolled out the dough.  I prepped my large pizza pan by spraying it with some olive oil and dusting it with corn meal.  I transferred the dough to the pan and poked it with a fork several times to keep it from bubbling up.  Then I put it in the oven to pre-bake for ten minutes.

Home Made PizzaI removed the crust from the oven and sprayed it again with some olive oil.  I added some pizza sauce and then let Terry add the toppings.  Back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, watching for the last few to make sure the cheese doesn’t get too brown.  Transfer it easily from the pan (slides right off thanks to the corn meal) to a large cutting board where it can rest and set the toppings for 5-10 minutes.  Cut and serve.

I liked the added flavor from the Pizza Dough Flavor mix.  It reminded me, nostalgically, of the Chef Boyardee Pizza Kits I used to make with my mother when I was a kid.  Though I must admit I think the KAF flavor tastes better.
