For the Dough You’ll Need:
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 packet active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 cups flour*
- Combine water, and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer with a dough hook. Stir until dissolved. Add honey, salt and olive oil. Mix thoroughly. On medium add 1 cup of flour and make a wet paste.
- Add remaining flour and continue to mix on medium adding flour when needed so dough does not stick to sides of the bowl.
- Continue to mix dough for about 8-10 minutes until smooth.
- Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel, Let rise for 45 minutes. If you have time, allow to rise slowly in the refrigerator. Overnight if possible.
- If dough has risen in the fridge, allow to rise at room temp before using.
To Make Pizza:
- Preheat oven to 500, 550 if you can and heat pizza stone for at least 15 minutes. The longer the better.
- Add a bit of flour to your pizza peel and form dough into desired size.
- Gently lift dough and add cornmeal to the pizza peel to allow dough to easily slide off.
- Add toppings
- Slide dough onto heated pizza stone and bake 5 minutes. Turn on broiler and continue to cook pizza until crust is golden and cheese id bubbly.
For the pizza pictured, I used one head roasted garlic mixed olive oil and a bit of melted butter for the base. Topped it with whole milk mozz, ricotta, and spinach.
* A note on flour. I use whatever I have available which is usually all purpose flour. I have used 00 flour and a mixture of different ones together. No matter what is used, your pizza will still be delicious. For this pizza, a mixture of 00 and all purples flour was used.

according to chefs it is not good to add salt to yeast before the rising process
Thanks for the tip! The recipe I used was a chef written recipe featured in Vogue magazine. I’ll omit the salt the next time I make it and see if I notice a difference.
