Pizza

What is your go to food? I love pizza. I know it is not a dessert, but it is a kind of baking.

Pizza was first documented in Gaeta in 977 AD. It was mostly eaten in Italy by immigrants, until after WWII , when soldiers began to enjoy eating pizza as well. In the 18th century in Naples, they began to add tomatoes to focaccia, making it similar to the modern pizza today.

For years pizza was regarded as a nauseating food that was only for the poor. It was not until 1889, when the King and Queen of Naples became tired of the complicated dishes that they were being served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They were served pizza and enjoyed it. This is when the popularity of pizza started.

Pizza dough is basically flour, oil, water and yeast.

Get all your ingredients measured out

Combine the yeast, sugar and water and let sit for about 5 minutes until the yeast gets activated

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix with the dough hook

When dough passes the window the window pane test, cover and let rise for about an hour
