Once you have mastered pizza dough, the possibilities for pizza and calzone are endless! A food processor can simplify making the dough. You will also need a large pizza pan or pizza stone.

Ingredients

  • Dough:
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar
  • 2 Tbsp yeast
  • 3 cups unbleached white flour
  • dash salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Topping:
  • Pizza sauce of choice (try pesto)
  • 8 ounces Redwood Hill Farm Goat Cheddar shredded (or may use crumpled Feta or Chevre)
  • 1 1/2 cups topping of choice: sliced bell peppers or roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, sauted mushrooms, eggplant, chopped olives, sundried tomatoes or anchovies

Instructions

  1. Dissolve honey or sugar in 1 cup warm water (100 degrees). Add yeast, and set in a warm place for about ten minutes. Foam will form on the surface of the yeast.
  2. Meanwhile, put the flour into the food processor (using metal blade) with a dash of salt. Drizzle in the olive oil, followed by the yeast mixture. When the dough forms a ball (motor will begin to slow down), place it in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours.
  3. Punch down and roll into desired shape.
  4. Cover the surface of the dough with sauce, and top with 8 ounces of Redwood Hill Farm goat cheese and toppings of choice.
  5. Bake in preheated 500 degree oven for 10-14 minutes until crust turns golden.
