Pizza Making Demonstration!

John and Elana Make Pizza from John Iaciofano on Vimeo.

Every month, Elana and I are aiming to post a creative video of us and food.  Whether that be a recipe, a restaurant, a food fight... remains to be seen, but we hope to post a video with some sort of regularity.  This week, we present Pizza Making Set to Pop Music.  Special thanks to B.O.B.'s "Magic" for providing the background track.

Also, if the video moves too fast, I have attached the pizza recipe we used.  Enjoy.

Pizza dough recipe

1 envelope dried yeast
1 cup warm water
4 c all purposeflour or bread flour
¾ t salt
½ cup warm water
2T olive oil

In a large bowl dissolve the yeast in 1 cup of warm water…stir in ½ cup of the flour.  Cover and let stand for about 30 minutes

Then add the other ½ cup of warm water salt and olive oil.  Slowly begin to add the remaining flour.  When all of the flour is incorporated knead the dough until it is smooth.  It may take about 10 minutes….

Then dust the dough lightly all over with flour and place in a bowl – covered with a cloth  to rise for about 1 hour.

When it has doubled in size, punch down the dough and divide into 4 parts.  Form each fourth into a smooth ball and let rise covered on a floured board for 30 minutes.  In the meantime heat the oven to 500 degrees for 30 minutes….
