Any of you guys make your own pizza dough?
Well? I can't find a good old school margharita pizza in this town so I've decided to take it upon myself to learn how to make one from scratch. I have some mozzarella from a shop down the road that's made in house, got the basil, and I'll figure out the sauce once I get the dough nailed down.

I've made my own a while ago, and honestly, the raw wheat dough that I buy from Whole Foods tasted better.

Maybe it was the recipe that I used, though.

caputo flour or bust

This is a good recipe I've used before. Also, get yourself a pizza stone if you don't have one.

Bread flour. There are a thousand recipes online. If you don't have a mixer, just make sure you knead the **** out of it.

Oh yea... The stone is a must... Put it on the lowest level of your oven. If it is gas, you can place it directly on the bottom. Make sure it is in the oven BEFORE you heat it up. If you place a cold stone into a hot oven it runs a high risk of cracking. Get a cheap wood pizza peel too.

Flour the stone, it will start burning but that's OK. Make sure you keep the peel and your work surface well floured. You don't want anything to stick.

Yes, I use King Arthur Bread Flour. Make sure your yeast is fresh and that you let it sit for a little while to rest, and use a pizza stone with parchment paper to make it easy to take things on and off the pizza stone. The pizza stone should be heated for 45 minutes in the oven before you put the pizza in, and the pizza cooks quickly at the highest temperature in the oven....7 minutes or so.

For the dough, roll it out nice and even and give it a toss once you roll it out so it doesn't shrink back in on itself.

i think this is the recipe I've been using, but I just look it up when I need it.

For the sauce I like to use saute some onion and garlic, add in crushed tomato, crushed red pepper, basil, and oregano. let it simmer for a while and then add sugar, salt and pepper to taste.

I was making my own in a bread maker, but it took a while to do and then saw it at Publix for $1.99 and figured it is a waste of time and money when I can buy it so cheap.
