Pizza Dough

Tender, chewy, dare we say 'commercial' tasting. This dough uses two leaveners to achieve that chain restaurant texture.

1 1/3 cup water
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons cornmeal
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/8 teaspoon MSG
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
(You may use all-purpose flour only for this recipe)

Bread machine: Add ingredients to machine bread pan in order given or as per manufacturer's instructions. Set to 'dough' mode.

Food processor:
Place water, sugar, salt and olive oil in bowl of food processor and pulse to dissolve sugar and salt. Add yeast, bread flour and all purpose flour. Process until a soft ball forms. Remove from machine and allow to rest, covered with a tea towel, about 45 minutes.

Dough hook:
Place water, sugar, salt and olive oil in bowl of mixer and dissolve sugar and salt. Stir in yeast, bread flour and all purpose flour and knead with dough hook to form a soft, but not-too sticky dough (about 8 minutes). Remove from machine and allow to rest, covered with a tea towel about 45 minutes.

By Hand:
In this case, use only all-purpose flour. Place water, sugar, salt and olive oil in bowl and dissolve sugar and salt. Stir in yeast, all purpose flour and knead to form a soft, but not-too sticky dough (about 8-l0 minutes). Allow to rest, covered with a tea towel about 45 minutes.

(*) For a breadier pizza dough - depending on taste and recipe requirements, you can add an additional 1/4 tsp. yeast.

Deflate dough very gently before using and allow it to rest a further 15 minutes before using in a recipe. You may refrigerate dough in an oiled plastic bag for up to two days.
