Ingredients
  

  • Ingredients for the Pizza Dough makes 3 pizzas:
  • 3 3/4 cup of bread flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3/4 tsp table salt
  • 3/4 tsp plus a pinch of sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups of room temperature water
  • Ingredients for the Pizza:
  • 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup of thinly sliced portabella mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup of red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary stem removed, leaves roughly chopped
  • flour

Instructions
 

  • Make the dough by adding the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar. Mix. Add the water, and with your wooden spoons, or hands, mix until blended. I use my KitchenAid for this process to keep everything in the bowl during the rising process. Mix for about 30 seconds. The dough should be a bit stiff. Cover the bowl with a towel, and let it sit at room temperature until the dough has doubled in volume, about 2 hours.
  • Once risen, divide into three portions. With one of the portions, add some flour to a large pastry board, and start rolling it out into your desired pizza shape. If you are adventurous, try tossing the pizza, to get your desired thickness.
  • Preheat your oven to 500 degrees with the pizza stone inside.
  • Lay the dough onto the preheated pizza stone, and top with garlic, then the cheese, mushroom, onion, and fresh rosemary. Place the pizza in the oven, cooking for about 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is nice and golden, or partially charred, and the cheese is nice and melted.
  • As I made a couple of other pizzas for the kids, I steered towards this one. As I loved the other ones, this one kept drawing me back to it. It was simple and again, that fresh rosemary not only provided a great smell, but the flavor was just spot on.
