Ingredients
  • 5 cups white unbleached flour
  • 1 package yeast
  • 1-1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 2 TBS honey (optional)
  • Olive oil to coat dough balls
Instructions
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the flour, yeast, and sea salt.
  • Attach dough hook.
  • Begin mixing on low speed while adding the water and allow to mix completely.
  • Once the flour is completely mixed (you may need to scrape down the sides), allow to mixer to knead the dough for a full 8 minutes (the dough will be very sticky and may be stuck to the bottom, this is okay!).
  • Remove bowl from mixer and flour the dough ball well, remove the dough hook, and place ball on a well floured surface.
  • Using a pizza slicer or a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 sections.
  • Gently form each piece into a ball and place on an oiled cookie sheet.
  • Rub the top of each dough ball with olive oil and cover with saran wrap.
  • Place cookie sheet in the oven (with it turned off) and allow the dough to rise for 2 hours. When the dough is ready, it will be puffy and full of bubbles, this is normal.

To cook pizzas:
  • Preheat outdoor grill and pizza stone to 500 degrees or preheat indoor oven with a pizza stone to 450 degrees.
  • Remove a dough ball from the cookie sheet (keeping the rest covered), flour well, and roll out to desired thickness (I usually roll ours very thin) and shape into a heart.
  • Add sauce and pizza toppings of choice.
  • Grill pizzas for 9-10 min or bake for 10-11 min until browned and bubbly.
  • Serve hot.
