Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate Ag Day yesterday! The event was a great success! For those of you that picked up one of our “Grow Your Own Pizza Garden” kits, please see below for the pizza sauce and dough recipes.
1 (15 ounce) Can Tomato Sauce 1 Tbs. Basil (fresh)
1 (6 ounce) Can Tomato Paste ½ tsp. Onion Powder
2 Garlic Cloves ½ tsp. Granulated Sugar
2 Tbs. Oregano (fresh)
In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients and pulse until smooth. Store in a resealable container until ready to use.
1 Cup + 1 Tbs. Water 2 ¼ tsp. Active Dry Yeast
1 tsp. Granulated Sugar 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Kosher Salt 1 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Heat water to between 110-115 °F. Sprinkle 2 ¼ tsp. active dry yeast over the water and then sprinkle 1 tsp. of sugar over the yeast. Let it sit until the water has become frothy. In a food processor, add 3 cups all purpose flour and 1 tsp. salt. Pulse for few seconds to evenly distribute the salt. With the food processor running, add the olive oil and then add the yeast and water combination until a dough ball forms. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and put the ball of dough in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to double in size, which takes about an hour and a half. Pull the dough apart and roll out to form the crust.
Be sure to send us a picture of your garden and pizza at firstname.lastname@example.org.
