We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

Spelt & Tipo 00 Pizza Dough
I have been working on a good pizza dough recipe that includes Spelt, but isn't heavy, and still has the chewy texture of a good New York pizza. Last week I tried a new combination of Spelt and Tipo 00 flours. Tonight I mad the dough again and I think I found the right combination. The pizza was amazing!
This was a wonderful dough. It makes great pizza.
Ingredients for this recipe are:
2 3/4 cups Lukewarm Water (microwave for 45 seconds)
1 1/2 tablespoons Instant Yeast
1 1/2 tablespoons Salt
1 tablespoon Honey
1/4 cup Olive Oil
3 cups Spelt Flour
4 1/2 cups Tipo 00 Flour
Mix all ingredients together in bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook on low until combined, then increase speed to medium and mix for 5 minutes.
Place dough in oiled 6 quart lidded container. Allow to rest on counter for 2 hours before making into pizza.
Dough will keep in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
