  • Summary

    Out of all the styles of pizza, we’ve chosen Crispy Cheesy Pan Pizza as our 2020 Recipe of the Year. With its crispy golden edges, gooey layer of cheese (right to the edge!), and thick yet delicate crust, it has a texture and taste that make you want more. Plus, the crust has just five simple ingredients: it’s easy to pull off in a home kitchen.   Our recipe incorporates four baking “tricks.” An untraditional, nearly no-knead method of folding the dough creates airy pockets in the crust. An overnight refrigerated rest allows the dough time to develop maximum flavor. Baking in a cast iron pan makes an audibly crispy crust for your flavorful assortment of toppings. And finally, the unique layering of cheese beneath the sauce acts as a barrier to minimize sogginess.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups (240g) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast or active dry yeast
    • 3/4 cup (170g) lukewarm water
    • 1 tablespoon (13g) olive oil + 1 1/2 tablespoons (18g) olive oil for the pan
    • 6 ounces (170g) mozzarella grated (about 1 1/4 cups loosely packed)
    • 1/3 to 1/2 cup (74g to 113g) tomato sauce or pizza sauce homemade or store-bought
    • freshly grated hard cheese (e.g. Parmesan Asiago Romano) and fresh herbs (oregano basil thyme) for sprinkling on top after baking optional
