I love love love making bread. Love it. I love the way the yeast smells as it ferments. I love the way the dough feels when I’m shaping a loaf. I love the smell of fresh bread right out of the oven. And most of all I love the taste and texture of good homemade bread.
I’ve been experimenting lately with different breads. I’m not going to lie, it can be hard, time consuming, and tiring. But these experiments are well-worth it in my opinion. So, I wanted to put together a few tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way. Below are links to a few of my stand-by, basic (read: easy/cheats guide) bread recipes as well.
I love pizza night! Traditionally a Friday tradition, but every once in awhile, you just need that pizza-pick-me-up mid-week. And if your’e like me, you’re a sucker for fresh bread — including fresh pizza. Well, good news — I’ve got a fail-proof, stand-by pizza dough recipe easy enough to make any day of the week. Even better news? This recipe makes enough dough for one family size (14 inches in diameter) or, you can make up to 5 individual size pizzas (8 inches in diameter). So whether you’re looking to feed the whole crew, or just you and your mate, you’ve got pizza night (or nightS) covered.
Note about the Recipe: Dough can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
