Next time you craving pizza and you don’t feel like making dough head to Whole Foods market and pick some up. There is an abundance of everything is awesome in the produce department. Inside I grabbed all the main ingredients including the sauce, cheese and dough. The fresh dough comes in 22 ounce bags. So I basically cut the dough in half and let it proof for a couple of hours before the bake. My Baking Steel needed a good hour preheat anyway, so there was plenty of time for a good proof.
Overall, I was super happy with the pizza. It’s still better to make your own dough, but if your short on time and want to make pizza, Wholefoods pizza dough delivers.
- 1 Whole Foods pizza dough
- 3 oz. whole foods pizza sauce
- 2 oz. shredded cheese
- 1 jalapeno - slice thin
Preheat your oven at 500 F with the Baking Steel on the top rack for one hour
Divide the dough into 2 equal portions and let rest for a minimum of 2 hours. This dough is going to be difficult to stretch by hand.
Stretch out the dough into a round and place on your lightly dusted with flour pizza peel.
Distribute the tomato sauce over the top. Place cheese on next followed by the thinly sliced jalapeño. Launch.
Launch pizza onto your Baking Steel and bake for 5-7 minutes. Midway through the bake, open oven and rotate.
Remove and serve it hot.
