Last year we decided to save money making ourown pizza and not buying so often. We finally worked out a decent pizza dough.
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp sugar
3/4 cups bran
1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix together in a large bowl, add enough warm water to make a soft dough. Knead 5 minutes. let rest 10 minutes.
Sprinkle cornmeal on a pizza pan or jelly roll pan. Place dough on pan and stretch to fit, using a rolling pin to help, and finish fitting to pan by hand. Add sauce, mozarella and other toppings. Bake in hot oven 450 degrees.
Mix the dough and knead it in the morning. Split into the number of pizzas you are going to make and put the balls into zip lock bags. Leave the bags on the table or kitchen counter until making the pizza that night.
The dough deflates and becomes something like what you get from the Pizza places.
Sounds yummy, do I need to use a different yeast?
No, use the same yeast. The recipe looks fine. I did try Italian flour(from KAF of course) but I did not care for it. I guess I am too much of an American. I use the bulk yeast from Costco and the Organic AP flour they sell. That reminds me, it is almost time for more of those....another trip to Costco(Ok, the store is two miles from my house)
Edited to add: you don't need the sugar. Part of the flour will break down to sugar.
