  • Pour water into a large bowl. Sprinkle yeast into water, and let it stand undisturbed until dissolved. Stir in 1 cup flour, 1 tablespoon herbs, sea salt, and 2 tablespoons oil until well blended. Mix in the flour, 1 cup at a time until a thick and somewhat sticky dough forms.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic. Form into a ball, and place into an oiled bowl. Flip the dough to coat the surface. Cover the bowl with a clean dishtowel, and let it rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down, and divide in half. Shape into an irregular ovals, about 1 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle cornmeal over 2 baking sheets; transfer dough to pans. Brush each loaf with olive oil, and sprinkle the remaining herbs on top. Make several slashes in the bread, cutting through the dough with a knife. Cover the loaves with clean dishtowels. Let rise again until the dough begins to rise again, about 20 minutes.
  • Place baking sheets into a preheated 450 degree F (220 degree C) oven. Quickly splash a small amount of water onto the floor of your oven to create steam, and close the oven door. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes.

  • Punch down the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten into a rectangle and cut into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a stick about 7 inches long. Place sticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; let rest uncovered for about 25 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  • Pour about 5 quarts of water in a large, deep pot; stir in baking soda. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium. Carefully place pretzel sticks in the simmering water in batches for 30 seconds, flipping after 15 seconds. Remove from water and let drain on paper towels.

Pizza Dough

Yeast Breads

Author: Eknecht

From America's Test Kitchen. Our Absolute Favorite Pizza Dough. "this Dough Can Be Used For Any Size Pizza With Thick Or Thin Crust; Simply Adjust The Cooking Time To Fit The Pizza. Make Sure You Heat The Oven To 500 Degrees For Thirty Minutes Before You Start Cooking. Your Tiles Or Stone Need At Least That Long To Heat Up; If They're Not Properly Heated, Your Pizza Crust Will Be Thin, Blond, And Limp. Once The Dough For The Crust Has Been Topped, Use A Quick Jerking Action To Slide It Off The Peel And Onto The Hot Tiles Or Stone; Make Sure That The Pizza Lands Far Enough Back So That Its Front Edge Does Not Hang Off. For A Cornmeal-flavored Dough, Substitute Three-quarters Cup Of Cornmeal For Three-quarters Cup Of The Bread Flour."

Yield: 2 14 inch pizzas

  • Measure 1/4 cup of warm water into 2-cup measuring cup. Sprinkle in yeast; let stand until yeast dissolves and swells, about 5 minutes.
  • Add remaining 1/4 cup warm water plus remaining 1 1/4 cups tap water and olive oil.
  • Meanwhile, pulse flour and salt in workbowl of large food processor fitted with steel blade to combine.
  • Add liquid ingredients (holding back a tablespoon or so) to flour and pulse together. If dough does not readily form into ball, stop machine, add remaining liquid, and continue to pulse until ball forms. Process until dough is smooth and satiny, about 30 seconds longer.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured work surface; knead by hand with a few strokes to form smooth, round ball.
  • Put dough into medium-large, oiled bowl, and cover with damp cloth. Let rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface and use chef's knife or dough scraper to halve, quarter, or cut dough into eighths, depending on number and size of pizzas desired. Form each piece into ball and cover with damp cloth. Working with one piece of dough at a time, shape into rounds as thick/thin as desired. Use your hands to stretch the dough into shape, rather than a rolling pin.
  • Transfer to pizza peel that has been lightly coated with semolina, brush dough very lightly with olive oil before topping and cooking.
  • Use the following guide to determine cooking time for pizza crust with topping but without cheese. All pizzas need to be cooked an additional two or three minutes after adding cheese, or until cheese is completely melted.
  • 14-inch pizzas (Master Recipe makes 2) - 7 to 8 minutes.
  • 12-inch pizzas (Master Recipe makes 4) - 5 minutes.
  • 8-inch pizzas (Master Recipe makes 8)- 3 minutes.
  • 12-inch pizzas (Master Recipe makes 2) - 9 to 10 minutes.
  • 8-inch pizzas (Master Recipe makes 4) - 5 minutes.
  • 6-inch pizzas (Master Recipe makes 8) - 4 minutes.

The Best Philadelphia Soft Pretzels Ever

Yeast Breads

Author: Annisette

I Read Somewhere That Philadelphians Eat Nearly Half Of All The Pretzels Made In America. Well, These Pretzels Are To Die For, And Are Just Like The Ones You Pay Several Dollars For At The Concession Stand. I've Made These Many Times With My Kids, And We Absolutely Love Them, Especially Dipped In Warm Mustard Or Melted Cheese. Prep Time Is Approximate, And Includes Letting The Dough Rise For 30 Minutes.

Time: 1h12m

Yield: 12-15 pretzels

Number Of Ingredients: 9

  • In mixing bowl add warm water and yeast. Stir until the yeast is completely dissolved.
  • Add the sugar. Stir. Gradually stir in the flour. The dough will become stiff and dry. That's what you want.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the counter or on a board. Flour your hands, too. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes.
  • Form the dough into a ball. Place the ball of dough back in the bowl and cover the bowl with a dish towel. Let the dough rise in a warm, dark place for at least 30 minutes, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • While the dough rises, heat the oven to 400F degrees. Grease or butter a cookie sheet.
  • Fill a saucepan half full of water, add the baking soda, and bring the water to a slow boil.
  • When the dough is finished rising, put it on a floured surface. Flour a rolling pin and roll the dough into a square shape, about 1/4-1/2 inch (6-10 mm) thick. Cut the dough into 1/2-inch (or so) wide strips. They don't have to be perfect.
  • Twist each strip into a pretzel shape, pinching the ends so they don't fall apart. Be careful not to let the strips stretch too thin as you handle them.
  • Place a pretzel on a spatula and lower it into the boiling water for 5-10 seconds. It will puff up and float. Use the spatula to remove the pretzel from the water. Place the pretzel on the greased cookie sheet. Repeat this with the other pretzels.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg for 1 minute. Use a pastry brush to coat the top of each pretzel with the egg. Sprinkle salt over the pretzels.
  • Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve with warmed mustard or melted cheese. YUM!

  • Combine water, sugar, and yeast in a bowl. Let rest until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Add melted butter, 2 cups flour, and salt to the yeast mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon to form a very sticky dough. Dust your work surface with remaining 1/2 cup flour.
  • Turn dough out onto the floured counter. Knead, folding in the excess flour as needed, until dough is soft, slightly sticky, and elastic. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Combine sugar and most of the sea salt together in a bowl. Mix, taste, and add more salt as needed.
  • Butter a 12-cup muffin tin. Spoon some of the seasoned sugar into the cups and shake to coat. Turn tin over and return excess sugar to the bowl.
  • Transfer dough onto a floured surface and press into a rough rectangle. Roll dough into a rectangle about 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Grate cold butter onto the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Flatten butter using lightly floured hands. Fold rectangle widthwise into thirds. Press gently to square out the edges. Place dough onto a silicone-lined baking sheet. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Roll dough into a large rectangle again, pulling and stretching the corners as needed. Grate the second stick of butter over the surface. Pat down with floured fingers and fold into thirds. Roll back out into a rectangle and fold into thirds. Repeat rolling and folding one more time. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Sprinkle a generous amount of the seasoned sugar onto your work surface. Place dough onto the sugar and sprinkle more sugar on top. Roll into a large rectangle about 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick, turning and topping with sugar between rolls.
  • Use a pizza cutter to trim away uneven edges. Cut dough into 12 even pieces. Sprinkle more sugar on top. Lightly pinch each pastry into a crown shape by bringing all four corners to the center; place into the muffin cups. Sprinkle more sugar on top. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and puffed, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer onto a cooling rack while still hot. Let cool for 15 minutes.
