This is the video of the pizza crust recipe that I’ve turned into a crusty bread recipe. Just ignore the whole part about toppings and I use WAY less oil: https://youtu.be/HUP0iCJV8Nk
This is how I have tweaked the recipe:
1 1/2 cups flour (I usually do at least half whole wheat)
1/4 tsp yeast
3/4 tsp salt (I only use this if I’m not using a brine for liquid)
3/4 cup liquid – this is going to vary depending on how much whole wheat flour you use. Add liquid until you have a wet dough. It should be much wetter than Russ’ bread dough
Combine, cover and let rise until doubled in size (overnight is easiest).
If you are using a well seasoned cast iron pan you may not need to add any oil. My pan is relatively new so I use about a teaspoon of avocado oil (because of it’s high smoke point).
Turn the dough into the pan and kinda spread it (if your dough is really wet, add a bit of flour first. I usually don’t have to.)
Cover and let sit for a couple of hours.
Then I bake it as per her instructions. 3 minutes on Med/hi on the stove top (this will also warm your pan so you don’t risk cracking it). Then 12-15 minutes in a well pre-heated oven set as high as it will go.
This takes a bit of forethought since you need to start it the day before you want to eat it and because of the oil it is a now and then not every day. But Russ really enjoys it and I hope you do to!
Liquids we like: Olive brine, roasted red pepper brine, jalapeno brine. To be fair, Russ loved it when I just made it with water and a bit of garlic powder. 🙂
