Made this last night, modified for the mixer (instead of hand kneading)
HERBED PIZZA DOUGH
2 3/4 c bread flour plus 1/2 cup flour for "working" the dough
7 oz warm (105F - 115F) water
1 TBSP yeast
1 TBSP mixed herbs for pizza (oregano, parsley, etc.)
1 TBSP chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1 tsp salt
Dissolve the yeast in the water until foamy (about 10 minutes). Place in
mixer bowl and add salt, herbs, dried tomatoes and flour.
Knead on low (speed 2 on Kitchen Aid) until ball forms and climbs up dough
hook (takes about 5 minutes). Place in bowl that has been sprayed lightly
with cooking spray. Cover and set in a warm place to rise (1-2 hours).
Makes a crust for a large (12" or more) pizza.
You can probably knead this by hand for 10 minutes and get the same results.
I topped the pizza with onions I dredged in flour and lightly sauteed in
some cooking spray and some cooked, sliced potato. Baked on a perforated
pizza pan for 20 minutes at 425F. It was very good.
