We’re going to try something different today.
This is the first post for my first Episode of ‘Cook with Pat’. And we’re going to be talking pizza!! Homemade pizza that is!!!
That’s what were going to call it for now. Do you like it?
I’m going to host a cooking show for the first couple of weeks in 2018.
The videos will be posted on my Youtube Channel All Day I Eat like a shark. Subscribe if you want to get updates!
In my first two pilot episodes, I’ll walk you through my process for making pizza.
Homemade pizza is super easy to make and super tasty.
Never tried it? Let me demonstrate!
Making the Pizza Dough
Sometimes I use my bread machine and sometimes I used my stand mixer.
I even cheat and just buy the premade dough at Trader Joe’s when I’m too busy or not prepared.
But you know what I’m going to say??!
There’s nothing like homemade pizza dough!!
And in this episode, we’re going to be using Italian 00 flour!
The brand I used is Caputo and I got it on Amazon.
I only used a half bag (500g) and when I bought it I got it in a pack of 3.
Overall first impression?
Definitely different than the All Purpose and Bread flours that I have been using!!
I usually like to double or triple a pizza dough batch and freeze the rest for next time.
That way it eliminates a step when I want pizza in the future.
Yes, it pays to plan ahead sometimes.
Pay yourself and plan ahead. Make a big batch of pizza dough!
I also plan ahead with the sauce.
But we’ll get into that tomorrow, in ‘How to Make Pizza with Italian 00 Flour Part 2: Making the Toppings‘.
If you’re wondering what useful tools I use to make pizza here they are:
