Pizza Dough

The other day I went to lunch at a nice restaurant in Dallas. For an appetizer, we had flat breat with Parmesan cheese and olive oil. It was yummy. So yummy in fact, that I tried to create it again for dinner that night.

This wasn't quite the same as what I had at the restaurant, but it was still good. And this was very easy to make as well. I got the original recipe here.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar (I, of course, added just a bit more)
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

1.Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and warm water. Spread out on a large pizza pan. Top as desired.
2.Bake at 375 degrees C (190 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes.

Here's my dough - I used my Kitchen Aide to mix it up.

Here's my pan, greased with olive oil.

Before I baked my dough, I spread olive oil on top,

and I grated this much Parmesan cheese,

I sprinkled the dough with kosher salt, cracked pepper, oregano, and the cheese.

Then I baked it following the directions. Here's the finished dough.

We sliced it up and ate it with dinner.

The leftovers were good toasted the next day too.
