Thanks so much! We've got a Friday night pizza tradition going at our house and I'm going to give your method a try next week. Cheers.

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flours and salt.

2. In a small mixing bowl, stir together 200 grams (about 1 cup) lukewarm tap water, the yeast and the olive oil, then pour it into flour mixture. Knead with your hands until well combined, approximately 3 minutes, then let the mixture rest for 15 minutes.

3. Knead rested dough for 3 minutes. Cut into 2 equal pieces and shape each into a ball. Place on a heavily floured surface, cover with dampened cloth, and let rest and rise for 3 to 4 hours at room temperature or for 8 to 24 hours in the refrigerator. (If you refrigerate the dough, remove it 30 to 45 minutes before you begin to shape it for pizza.)

4. To make pizza, place each dough ball on a heavily floured surface and use your fingers to stretch it, then your hands to shape it into rounds or squares. Top and bake.

Was that cooked in a normal oven? Or are you blessed with a hot pizza oven?

I set the oven at 475 degrees and used the bottom rack for 10 minutes. I added the basil and then returned it to the middle rack for another 3 minutes.

Impressive pizza for only cooking at 475. Would you be willing to share your dough recipe and process? Thanks!
