Learning All About the New York Pizza Dough
Summary: If visiting New York is not an option but you still crave authentic New York pizza, consider this recipe because it makes fantastic pizza in the unmistakable Big Apple style.
Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 package yeast
  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  1. Combine the water and the yeast in a bowl large enough to fit all of the other ingredients. Leave the yeast sit without bothering it until it starts to produce bubbles on the water's surface.
  2. Get a spatula or other mixing tool out. Work the salt and sugar in to the water first. Follow up with the oil. From there, put the bread flour in to the bowl. Work the dough until the flour is completely absorbed with the water. The New York Pizza dough begins to form at this point. Let it rise until it is twice the original size.
  3. Spread the all-purpose flour on your working surface and turn the dough bowl out on to the counter. Make sure that you are getting a good coating of flour on your hands and the counter so that you do not deal with the dough sticking to everything. It is a fairly sticky dough, so this can be an issue.
  4. Cut the dough into three parts and roll each separate part in to a ball. Cover these three balls until they finish rising. Use immediately or store in the fridge or freezer.
