Mike Hauke’s Pizza Dough Variations

Ingredients

BAKING SODA PIZZA DOUGH

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon salt (kosher salt or sea salt preferred)

1 tablespoon baking soda

2 tablespoon olive oil or any oil, who cares!

2 tablespoons softened butter or margarine, whatever you want!

1 egg (scramble)

2 cups milk, or almond milk, or soy milk, this dough doesn't discriminate!

TOPPINGS - cheddar or american cheese, hamburger meat/ground beef, ketchup, mustard. I think this dough works great for american style hamburger. Mayo too!

INSTRUCTIONS: In a large bowl, mix all ingredients, then knead, fold, use a food processor, and you want the consistency to not be sticky, but not dry.

Tacky is more like it, so it sticks to your hand but then releases. If it does not do that, add more water if too dry, or add more flour if too wet.

Wrap all ingredients in a bowl with plastic wrap on top and leave on the counter for 10 minutes - 1 hour.

Then remove plastic and roll out with a wine bottle, press out with your hands, rolling pin, etc.

This dough you can use immediately! Roll out dough on sheet pan. Bake dough at 450 for 10 minutes, take out of the oven, top with your ingredients, then put back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.


Old Fashion Pizza Dough - I like my dough wet and sticky, so you may want to add a little more flour

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cups flour (bread, rice, almond, hi-gluten, all purpose...it's all good!)

1 tablespoon salt

For best results, let sit for at least 1 hour at room temperature and for the best best results put in the refrigerator overnight or 2 days in a plastic container, sprayed with cooking spray or oil, then covered with room to grow.

Take out, stretch and put on sheet pan, put all toppings on, bake dough at 450 for 15 minutes.
