Ok, I know you guys have all been freaking out, thinking "when is she going to post the goddamned pizza recipe already" and hitting refresh every few seconds, but relax, dudes. Here it comes. Now pretty much any pizza is a good pizza, and I've made a lot of them, but this one really stands out in quite a few ways. One really wonderful way is that the crust only rises for 30-40 minutes. It's a great crust, and although I still prefer Marcella Hazan's crust recipe, hers has to rise for three hours so it's rare that I have time to make it. Also, I believe hers makes two pies and is a bit difficult to split. This is taken from the Greens cookbook, which is a very exciting cookbook indeed.
3tbl hot water
1/2 package (1 and a quarter tsp) active dry yeast
1 tbl olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbl rye flour (you can get this from the bulk bins at the co-op to just buy a small amt)
2 tbl whole wheat flour
5/8 cup white flour
Combine hot water and cold milk-ideally the liquid should be around body temp. Add yeast and sugar and stir. Then mix in all ingredients except white flour, and after gradually mix in white flour. Flour the crap out of a surface (the dough is really sticky at this point) and keep flouring as you knead it. This is some beautiful dough here. Knead for five minutes but you know you won't really do it for a full five. Oil it up, put in bowl, cover, wait 35-40 minutes.
OK, so even if you don't use this to make their nicoise pizza, you have some great dough. If you'd like to press on, start thinking about what time you are going to turn on your oven to get your pizza stone heated to 500 degrees. Don't even think about making this without a stone! Get a stone, they're cheap and they work great. Hmm...I'm tired of writing right now so I will follow up with the rest of the recipe later.
