Pizza, a single name that truly encompasses many types. High, low, with a high cornice and / or stuffed, sliced, sautéed … and like the types, even the dough can differ. Pizza Dough with Dry Yeast is a dough that will allow you to obtain a perfect dough for different types of pizza quickly directly at home.
Pizza Dough with Dry Yeast
Usually the dough for the Neapolitan Pizza is prepared only with 00 flour (pastry flour) and fresh brewer’s yeast, the leavening takes at least 4 hours. When you are at home, however, you may not have all this time, or you just have a sudden craving for pizza and don’t feel like waiting that long.
If so this is the right dough. One part of 00 flour, one part of bread flour and instant yeast, oil, water, salt and 1 hour of leavening will be all you need to create your pizza. I used these two flours because the strength of one, the Manitoba (bread flour – I used a reinforced Manitoba 0) compensates for the weakness of the 00 in order to have a balanced dough.
The dough is versatile, divided in two, you will get two pizzas with a high and soft edge with a base of about 1/2 cm or 4 thinner pizzas with a crunchy edge or maybe a nice giant pizza! Whatever pizza you want with this Pizza Dough with Dry Yeast you can’t go wrong! I used it to prepare a Garlic Cheese Pizza one with a high rim and two thin and crunchy ones for a delicious snack and they brushed everything!
