My last post was buzzed to the #1 spot on The Top 9 at Foodbuzz this last Sunday thanks to all of you Dearies, elvin folk, vegan & vegetarian lovelies, and even trolls. I must admit though that I am now a bit nervous to post! I mean, how do I live up to Mango & Coconut cake ever again?
Luckily, I know that I am here to simply share my goodies with you all. And this next recipe is a winner all on its own due to simplicity, ease, and deliciousness. Yes, Witchy Fast Semolina Dough makes a beautiful pizza that is authentic and quick. You decide how thick or thin you want the crust-I suggest thin, so find a big round or square pan and smooth some olive oil over it!
Witchy Fast Dough
1 Pack of Yeast
1 Cup of Warm Water
2 Cups All Purpose Flour (King Arthur is excellent)
1/2 Cup of Semolina + some for smoothing sticky dough
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1 1/4 Tsp. Salt
Dry Italian Herbs (Optional)
In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water and let sit for 1 minute. Add to the dry ingredients-whirl your wand through for about 25 strokes. Knead for about 3 minutes adding a touch of flour if needed for sticky spots. Form into a round mass as pictured above. Cover with a kitchen towel & let sit for 10-15 min. Press into 2 large olive oil smeared pans for thin crust or one large pan for bulky crust. Sprinkle with a touch of semolina, and top with whatever you like! Bake at 420-25 degrees for 15-18 min.
See how nice?
