Plan Ahead Pizza

I try to bake bread at least one if not two days a week, on my days off.  This past week I baked 6 baguettes on Tuesday,  and three sourdough baguettes on Wednesday.  I saved enough dough from the sour dough batch to make a pizza. I know I have mentioned it before, but giving the dough a chance to develop over two or three days really does make for a superior crust.

The crust is so good it becomes the star of the show needing nothing more than a few simple toppings.   Last night’s pizza was topped with just sauce, Bocconcini cheese (fresh mozzerella balls) and I had a few mushrooms that I needed to do something with. Sliced thin and sauted they were all we needed.

    pizza looks amazing, but I looked on your site and cannot find the recipe for the dough?

  13. Anonymous, I make my pizza crust out of a couple of different doughs, depending on the bread I've made that week. Julia Child's Baguette dough makes a wonderful pizza crust, especially if you make the dough a couple of days in advance. I knead up enough dough to make two or three baguettes and enough for a large pizza. The pizza dough can be left in the fridge for up to 2 to five days. The longer the fermentation the better the crust.http://www.thibeaultstable.com/2010/01/thibeaults-pizzeria.htmlhttp://www.thibeaultstable.com/2009/04/potato-leek-soup-and-sour-dough-french.html
