We made pizza tonight. My wife didn't have time so she googled "quick pizza dough"... found this:
1) Combine 3 cups flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbspn sugar and 7g dry yeast.
2) Add 2 Tbspn olive oil and 1 cup warm water
3) Form, garnish and bake.
She tried and it and the dough was heavy and hard, when I felt it I could tell we'd end up with pizzas that would have been hard as stone. I looked at the recipe and right away found it suspicious that there's no folding, no kneeding, no resting, etc...?? They even boast about their recipe not needing any resting or kneeding, just mix the ingredients, spread, add garnish and bake.
How can such a "quick & easy" recipe work??? Or can it? Were we just pranked?
We ended up throwing the lot in the bin and making good old regular pizza dough which is pretty much the same ingredient list but with the kneeding, a couple resting periods and the folding (I followed the food processor version of that recipe: http://www.wolfgangpuck.com/recipes/view/56793/All-Purpose-Pizza-Dough). Ended up eating delicious pizzas.
