Herb, Garlic and Olive Oil Pizza Dough or Herb Bread Dough Recipe

Friday, March 1, 2013
I just love experimenting with pizza dough. After I thought about how much I love garlic and herbs on the crusts, I decided to add it to my dough recipe! I was really not surprised what an awesoe asting pizza crust this made. I can't wait to make it again! Everyone loved it!

It really was nice and light I let it rise twice this time.
The crust came out light and crisp like we love it!

All I had to do is add the sauce, cheeses and sprinkle with oregano and viola a herb crusted delicious pizza!  If you don't want to make pizza it made a great loaf of bread too!  Just let rise in a loaf pan and bake at 350 until brown and middle sounds hollow when you tap it!

Basic Herb Dough Recipe
4 1/2 cup flour
2 packages dry yeast dissolved in 2 cups warm water to the touch
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar Optional
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon each fresh herbs chopped rosemary, chopped basil, chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder I used granulated
Dissolved yeast in the warm water let sit for 7 minutes. Add sugar, salt and then oil. Add the herbs mixing together. Using the paddle on a heavy duty mixer add the flour and beat until forms a ball and leaves the sides of the bowl. Dough should be slightly sticky not dry.  ( add a tablespoon of warm water at a time if too dry)
Let rise for 2 hours, punch down rise again. Spread out on pizza pans top with your favorite sauce, cheese and toppings you like.  Bake at 425 degree hot oven until crispy and browned.
