Author Notes: It took a few times to master the dough. I wanted a pizza dough that had lots of flavor and was made with beer. I have found the secret to my crust was to warm up the beer before adding it to the dry ingredients. I took my favorite pizza ingredients: assorted colorful bell peppers, fresh mozzarella, hot Italian sausage, garlic and fresh herbs and came up with a very delicious pizza!gourmetpompey


Serves 4

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup warm beer
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced yelllow bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced orange bell pepper
  • 2 cups Pizza sauce- I pick a good kind with maybe garlic or basil in it and low sodium.
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella
  • 1 pound Hot italian sausage cut up- cook sausage until slightly pink.
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped garlic
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella- nice thick slices for the top of the pizza
  1. In a large mixing bowl add the 1st 7 ingredients- mix well.
  2. Warm up the beer and water together in a glass purex measuring cup about 1 minute in the microwave.
  3. add the warm beer and water to the dry ingredients. Mix with a wooden spoon.
  4. Place dough onto a floured surface and knead a few times just to shape into a nice round ball. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil to the bowl and coat the dough. Cover tight with plastic wrap and set in a warm place for 2 hours let rise until it fills the inside of the bowl.
  5. Roll the dough out onto a flour surface roll the dough big enough to fit on your pizza stone, or pizza pan. I use a stone makes it nice and crispy. Spread the pizza sauce and then top it with shredded mozzarella, then the bell peppers, garlic, and Hot Italian Sausage- cook the sausage until slightly pink in a saute pan then add it to the pizza. Then the fresh mozzarella slices.
  6. Place pizza in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. slice and enjoy!
