PhillyBoy makes the best homemade pizza dough I’ve ever had.. in my life. And I mean it. So when I decided to make homemade pizzas on Friday night I was a little nervous and hesitant, especially as he is in town and would be tasting it. It was the perfect starting post for this new blog. He uses the recipe from smitten kitchen which you can find here.
If there is one tip I can offer you all it is to be patient. Let your dough rise fully, or it will be too dense, and take your time rolling it out so that it can be nice and thin and crispy.
I doubled the recipe and made two pizzas since we were having people over.
My friend’s tomatoes are so amazing that we just had to use one, making the first pizza ingredients easy to decide: the ugly tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil and kalamata olives. The second one was easy too.. roasted zucchini, a bit of tomato, and a bit of mozzarella. Keep the ingredients light to not weigh down the pizza.
I would say this was a great first attempt at pizza dough.. the recipe was really easy to follow and the dough was light and fluffy. I can’t wait to try it again!!
