Pizza Dough Recipe with Starter Directions

  • In a small separate cup mix the Active Dry Yeast with the warm water. It must bubble. If it floats your yeast is dead and you need to get a new fresh batch.
    Next break out your mix master bowl. Add your flour and Diastic Malt together with a dough hook attachment for 2-3 min in the mix master.
    Add your Active Dry Yeast mixture to the flour mix
    Once incorporated add your wet starter mix
    Next add your ice water. Mix for 3-5 min. You may have to adjust some more water or flour to achieve the dough consistency.
    While mixing add your salt & olive oil. Allow mix for another 3-5 min
    You may have to stop the mix master to scrape the sides to incorporate all the ingredients
    Once mixed all together take dough out and knead the dough by hand for a 1 min. Let it sit out on a flat surface for 1 hour with a wet towel over it and allow to rise slightly
    After 1 hour place the dough in a sheet pan and wrap well in clear wrap.
    Allow 24 hours in the fridge with a max of 48 hours to allow the dough to rise
    Take dough out after 48 hours and follow the next recipe on how to bake your pizza in our recipe section!
