RECIPE: New Pizza Dough and Black & White Pizza

I found this recipe on for Black and White Pizza.  It's a really interesting combination of ingredients.  You could also call this Chicken Alfredo and Black Bean Pizza.  We tried it on a new pizza dough recipe.  It reminds me of a "hand-tossed" style crust from Domino's.  If you don't like a thicker crust, you can try my Original Pizza Dough recipe.  It's a thinner type of pizza crust. 

I can't wait to share this with you:

Pizza Dough II (adapted from Saveur Magazine)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
1 Tablespoon honey or sugar (I use honey)
2 cups hot water (110-115 degree F)
6 cups of flour 
1-1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

In a bowl, combine oil, yeast, sugar and water, let rest 5-10 minutes until yeast has activated and foamy.  Add flour 1 cup at a time along with salt to yeast mixture and stir until combined.  Transfer dough to floured surface and knead until smooth about 8-10 minutes.  Cut dough in half for 2 large pizzas.  Roll each portion in a ball and place them on a floured sheet pan.  Cover with tea towel and allow to rise for 2-3 hours.  

Place one ball of dough in the center of a metal sheet pan.  Pat and press the dough into a round shape, allowing the "crust" about 1" on the edge.  Don't flatten that part.  Cover with the tea towel and allow to rise for 15 minutes (this will give you a fluffier and chewier crust).  Top with your favorite toppings and bake at 500 degrees F for 10-14 minutes.  

This was so good!  We're even going to try to use this recipe and make some garlic bread sticks.  Oh my goodness!
