1 1/8 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
3/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1 1/2 – 2 cups bread flour , or all-purpose flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons salted butter
2 cloves garlic , minced
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large bowl or stand mixer combine 1/2 cup of the warm water with the sugar and yeast. Stir to combine and let rest for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 cup warm water, olive oil, salt and vinegar.
Begin mixing on medium-low speed and gradually add the flour –knead for a few minutes, or until the dough is smooth and elastic (it should be slightly sticky, but not so sticky that it sticks to your clean fingertip). Mine is usually ready with 1 1/2 cups flour) Cover the bowl with a dry towel and allow to rest in a warm place for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees F with a pizza stone inside or upside down cookie sheet inside.
Gently punch the dough down. Place a large piece of parchment paper on your counter and use your hands (or a rolling pin, but it’s easier with your hands) to spread the dough into a rectangle about 1/3 inch thick.
Mix melted butter and garlic in a small bowl then spread mixture evenly over dough, all the way to the edges. Top with parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.
Transfer the dough (still on the parchment paper) onto the hot pizza stone in the oven. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
Serve with dipping sauces like marinara sauce or ranch.
