Salt Crusted Pizza

Being a pastor my work week runs Sunday to Thursday. I treat Thursdays as my Fridays, my Fridays as my Saturdays and my Saturdays as my Sundays. On Thursdays we make pizzas, we make the dough, the sauce, grate a block of fresh mozzarella, and have at it. I believe we have perfected the pizza by the addition of condiments on the crust. I use kosher salt, the wife uses garlic salt.

here is the dough recipe
1 cup of warm water
3 cups of all purpose King Arthur Flour
2 and 1/4 teaspoons of Instant Yeast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 and 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of honey (preferably from a hive in your backyard)

oh. my. god. I want to reach right through the screen and grab a slice! Even for breakfast. I have never met such a photogenic pizza in my life!

P.S., Theobilly-- and by the way, now that I've got past the pizza: great blog! I enjoyed reading all of it just now, but am still looking for the thank you gift. If those were only for Open House Weekend, maybe you should consider holding a Grand Opening next! Toaster ovens and all that... to heat up the leftover pizza.

I have had this pizza...it is fabulous. After we dined on this pizza with the RI CAB's, we came home to South Dakota and bought ourselves some Kosher salt. It makes a difference. Thank you, thank you RI CAB's!!!

Thanks for the comments on the pizza. Glad to hear you like the embryonic stages of the blog, gail. There will be some party favors, but i am still trying to figure out how to disseminate them. be on the lookout.
