Recipe from Indigo's Old Italian cookbook, circa 1962
paperback and falling apart, well overused
Pizza Dough

8-12 oz lukewarm water
1 T active dry yeast
2 1/2-3 C flour +you'll need to dust on counter
1 t salt
4 grinds fresh black pepper
2 t honey
2 1/2 T olive oil + more for brushing over top of dough before adding toppings

Put water in measuring cup, stir in yeast using wooden spoon, stir to dissolve. Let it proof about 10 minutes for the bubbles to form.
In a large sized bowl add the flour, salt and pepper. Stir. In the yeast water add honey and olive oil. Stir that together then slowly start adding the wet mix to the dry. This is where you'll know if you need more of the water mix or not. You want a soft dough, not to stiff. Put the dough on a lightly floured counter surface and knead it until it is totally combined and feels like a baby's bum, about 8-10 minutes. Oil a large bowl on the bottom with 1 T olive oil, put in the dough and turn it several times to coat with oil. Cover with tea towel and place in a warm spot in the kitchen where there is no draft. Let it double in size. This takes about 1 1/2-2 hours. When doubled, sock your fist down in the dough to deflate and take out of bowl. Knead it 2 minutes longer then cut into 4= sized portions. Let it rest covered with a tea towel. You may freeze or refrigerate portions not used, for later use.
Flatten out the piece you're using with your hands to form flat round. Using a rolling pin, roll it out to size of your pizza pan. Place in the pan and use your finger tips to gently push the dough into place. Drizzle a small amount of oil on the dough and rub it on or brush it on with a pastry brush. Top with your favorite ingredients and bake in your preheated 450 oven until done and cheese is melted. 8-10 minutes approximately.

Are you making the petit fours also? If so, I would love to have the recipe.

We had pizza on Thursday so tonight we'll be having baked penne in a tomato cream sauce with chicken, spinach, mushrooms, mozz and parm. With a big salad-greens with tomato, avo, cukes, mandarin oranges, gorganzola, pecans, carrots & homemade rosemary croutons! Can you tell I'm excited about dinner? I've been planning to make this for the past week, on a night when dh is home. Should be tasty!
