Beer Pizza Dough

REVIEWS Read/Review
Prep time 2 1/4 hours
Cook time 20 mins
Yield pizza, dinner, beer dough

The Goods

  • 4 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Room Temperature Beer
  • 2 tsps Yeast
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsps Salt
  • 2 Tbs Olive Oil
  • Directions are from source given. Ingredients are an average of other beer pizza dough recipes.

    The Game Plan

    • Place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fixed with a paddle attachment and mixed until just combined. Replace paddle attachment with dough hook and knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 7 minutes (or knead by hand on a lightly floured countertop for about 10 minutes). Form dough into a ball, place in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. 
    • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Remove risen dough from bowl and punch down. Divide in half and shape each piece into a 10-12 inch round or 8-by-12 inch rectangle. Place rounds or rectangles onto pizza stones or parchment paper-lined baking sheets. For thin crust, bake pizza immediately. For medium to thick crust, let dough rest for about 30 minutes. 
    • Bake crusts without anything on them for about 5 minutes. Add meat and veggie ingredients and bake another 10 minutes. Add half the cheese and any herbs and bake another 3 minutes, then add remaining cheese and bake until cheese is just melted, about 3 more minutes. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

    Chicken Cheesesteaks with Peppers

    The Goods

  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 mixed bell peppers (ribs and seeds removed), thinly sliced

    Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. On a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, toss chicken with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Broil, without turning, until chicken is opaque throughout, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board (reserve baking sheet); let cool, and thinly slice. Set chicken aside.

    On baking sheet, toss together peppers, onion, garlic, and remaining tablespoon oil. Broil, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender and slightly charred, 8 to 10 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add chicken to broiled vegetables; toss, and spread in a single layer.

    Top chicken and vegetables with cheese; broil until cheese is bubbling, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Scoop out most of the doughy center from both halves of rolls; discard. Spread rolls with mayonnaise; fill with chicken and vegetables. Serve immediately.
