Okay, today is Friday which means one thing here at the McKiernan house…Pizza for dinner! I’ve been doing this for years (and years!) so I am always amazed on a given Friday, when someone in my family asks, “hey, what’s for dinner?” My response is always the same, “Well, it’s Friday…” and then they know. I like my Friday pizza routine because it makes the dinner plans for at least one night out of the week easy, predictable and satisfying.
Today I wanted to do something a little different. Instead of mixing my dough in the food processor (which is the EASIEST and FASTEST and LEAST MESSY/STICKY way), I wanted to make the dough by hand. I Googled “pizza dough by hand” and found a YouTube video of a man making pizza dough. His recipe is very similar to the one I usually use. And so I went for it! It’s about an hour later and my dough is rising very nicely in a cozy warm oven.
