It was an un-traditional Christmas this year, but the food was still good.  I tried another recipe from the BBA and once again, it did not disappoint.  This time it was pizza dough!

The recipe was the first one that I've made that takes 2 days.  You make the dough the first day, shape it into (6) 6-ounce (or as close to 6 ounce as you can, mine were 5.5 ounces) balls and refrigerate overnight.  The second day you want to flatten the dough and let it rest at room temperature for 2 hours.


The result?  A dough that was incredibly easy to work with, although I got a bit overzealous and stretched it out so much that it tore, so I had to let it rest for a bit and start over.  And it didn't make as large a pizza as I thought, but they are great for making individual ones, so everyone can put their own toppings on it.  I chose turkey pepperoni and canadian bacon.  Cooked on the pizza stone for about 5-8 minutes and it came out perfect.

The best part is that you can freeze any remaining dough for up to 3 months, so whenever I get a craving for pizza again, I've got some in the freezer.
