Deep Dish Pizza Dough
Chewy and light and garlicky and herby and what dreams are made of.
2 1/2 cups [300g] all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons [7g] active yeast
1 1/2 [10g] teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon [11g] garlic powder
1 teaspoon [3g] onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup [227g] warm water
Using a stand mixer, combine all ingredients on low speed just until they come together. Then, let the dough sit for ten minutes to rest.
Once rested, turn the mixer on to knead for about 5-7 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Generously oil a large bowl with olive oil and turn the dough into the bowl. Turn the dough over in the bowl to cover the dough in oil. Cover with a towel or tea cloth or plastic wrap and let sit until doubled in volume- about two hours.
Once doubled, generously oil a 9x13 pan with olive oil. Turn out the dough into the pan and using your fingers, press evenly throughout. Cover again and let rise for another two hours.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Top the dough with your favorite sauce, cheeses, and toppings. Bake until the edges are deeply, deeply brown and the top is bubbling- about 20-25 minutes.
