Slow-Rise Pizza Dough- BBQ chicken pizza

Lately I have had all sorts of fun making homemade pizza for dinner on Sarurday nights. I have been especially grateful that Laura over at has also been on a pizza kick lately because she has been posting some great pizza crust recipes and I trust her recipes 100%. This is another one from Laura's blog that she found on Melanie from My Kitchen Cafe's blog.

Slow-Rise Pizza Dough

2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1 1/3 cup cold water
3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt

These directions come straight from My Kitchen Cafe. The beauty about making this recipe the night before is you can just throw all the ingredients together cold (no warming the water) and stick it covered in the refrigerator. That is all I do - mix the dough to the desired consistency (I like my dough pretty soft) and really try not to over flour it and then place it in a greased bowl covered with saran wrap in the refrigerator. Be sure to take it out of the refrigerator a few hours before you make the pizza so the dough has time to warm and relax. This recipe makes 2 medium-sized pizzas. Directions for baking pizza:Preheat oven to 475 degrees. (If using a pizza stone, let stone heat for at least 30 minutes in the oven before baking pizza.) If baking in a sheet pan, press dough onto sheet pan and top with sauce and toppings. Bake for about 12 minutes (checking often) until crust is browned and cheese is golden and bubbly. If baking on the preheated pizza stone, slide pizza onto stone and bake for about 8 minutes

Of course I'll share the recipe!! It's not really supposed to be a pie, but we experimented one day and it was so so good! Should I email it to you or just some back and post it on your blog? By the way, we are in a pizza mood lately too. I'll be posting two recipes and I still have a bbq chicken I want to do. Pizza must be in the air!
