I love pizza. I really wasn’t planning on being gluttonous and having it 3 nights in a row! But when I got the call to pick up Vivian (she’s doing much better, thanks for asking) I realized my timing for beans and rice was shot.
Just so happens, this morning I found a recipe for no-rise pizza crust over at the Faux Martha. Since I have been on a pizza bender this summer I knew I had to try this. And since I was trying to come up with a quick easy dinner I went with this.
The recipe came together very nicely. I actually halved it (mostly). I liked the recipe was a mix of whole wheat and all purpose. Whole wheat always gives a nice texture to a pizza crust. I rolled it out into 2 small discs (think smaller than a dinner plate) and preheated the grill to 400+/-. The dough was nicely stiff, so I could stack both dough discs together to carry out to the grill. My favorite thing about this dough was when I tossed the first disc on the grill, part of it fell between two grates and I was able to re-position it smoothly and without tearing the dough.
I grilled on the first side for about 4 minutes (long enough to grate the cheese, pick my cherry tomatoes and kick the soccer ball a few times). Turned it over and added my toppings. I was kinda slow on this part tonight so my cheese didn’t melt as much as I would have liked since I was worried about the crust burning.
I’m giving this an A-/B+. Good solid recipe with a few interesting new tidbits (parmesan IN the dough) and will certainly improve as I play with it a bit more. Definitely one you should try. Thanks faux Martha.
