Garlic-parmesan pizza dough

The first part of our series on pizza: Homemade dough

I’m trying to lose a significant amount of wait before the zombie apocalypse so that I can outrun my attackers, but sometimes you just want a pizza.  I’m sure this will come back to bite me in the ass when a zombie is gearing up to literally bite me in the ass, but I’ll let Future Ryan deal with that one.

Garlic-parmesan pizza dough

1-1/4 cups water
2 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. honey
3-3/4 cups flour
1-1/2 tbsp. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. salt
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
1-1/2 tsp. active dry yeast or 2 tsp. rapid rise yeast

The recipe for the dough yields two 12-inch pizzas or one really big pizza. Or, if you’re on a diet, three small ones, I guess.

To make the bread in a bread maker, add the water, then the honey and oil, followed by the drive ingredients. To add the final ingredient, the yeast, create a small well in the center, then fill with the yeast. Set the bread maker to dough on “normal” for active yeast or “quick” for rapid rise.

If you’re using a dough paddle and mixer, or just your hands, mix the water with the yeast, then add the oil and honey, and then finally the dry ingredients. You’re going to need to cover it and let it rises and all kinds of crazy crap, but I haven’t done that in years, so it’s up to you and Google to get that done.

Or just get a bread maker.
