Buttermilk Pizza Dough
The flavor of this dough is faintly cheesy and the texture softer than most doughs.
If you like a less chewy crust, you will enjoy this one.
- 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cup (1/4 pound) butter
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 packages dry yeast
- Put the butter and the buttermilk in a saucepan and place it over a low flame.
Warm the milk slowly so the butter melts in it. Do not let the milk get hot.
- Stir the yeast and sugar into 1/2 cup of warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes.
- Sift 4 cups of flour, the salt, and baking powder into a large bowl.
- Stir in the warm milk and melted butter.
- Add the yeast mixture.
- Mix the ingredients thoroughly and then turn them out onto a floured board. Knead for 8 minutes, incorporating
more flour into the dough if necessary to keep it from being too sticky.
- When the dough has reached a smooth consistency, put it into a clean bowl and brush vegetable
oil over the top of the dough. Cover with a clean towel and place in a warm, draft-free
place for 1 1/2 hours.
