Artisan Bread in Five’s Pizza Crust

Artisan Bread in Five’s Pizza Crust

Ok, I am sure everyone is sick of me talking about how amazing the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day is, but in case you missed that memo I will remind you today:)

We made the master boule recipe and had huge success! We made a big crusty rustic loaf, 2 French baguettes, and 2 pizzas with just one recipe. It was so nice to have the dough in the fridge, whenever we were craving fresh bread or pizza, we just cut off a portion of the dough. This method really is magic.

Josh is a pizza fanatic, so of course we had to see if the dough lived up to our high pizza standards. We made 2 thin crust pizzas and the results were outstanding! The crust was perfect and again, it was SO easy!

So if you still haven’t tried this method, get moving! You will be so glad you did! I love that you can make bread, pizza, calzones, sticky buns, bagels, etc. Your choices are endless! So get the book and get baking!! Anyone can do it, I promise!

    I’m not sick of you talking about the artisan bread! You know why? because it reminds me to finally frigging make the darn bread already! lol
    It’s 8am and I would MUCH rather have pizza with my morning latte right now.

    Pizza is my favorite way to use this crust! I also use it for stromboli.

    That pizza looks equally artisan :) I envy Josh….I’d kill to sit on the couch and have someone deliver home-made pizza 😀

  11. Jacque — March 18, 2009 @ 6:06 am

    My first attempt at pizza dough wasn’t the greatest. I might just have to try this, though, it looks fabuolous!

  12. Allie — March 18, 2009 @ 6:17 am

    I love hearing you talk about fresh bread it makes me wish I had some right now. I have the book on my birthday wish list so I hope my hubby buys it as an early gift!

  13. Spryte — March 18, 2009 @ 6:19 am

    I keep wanting to make that bread and I never get around to it!

    Allie-I hope the hubby gets the hint..ha!

    That looks great. I will have to give this a try sometime.

  25. Erica — March 18, 2009 @ 7:20 am

    Sick of bread? Is that an actual possibility? The pizza looks so good! I am def much more of a thin crust fan! How are you feeling today?? I’m telling you- I’ve had almost no problems since moving up my protein…I really really hope it continues!

  26. Ruth Daniels — March 18, 2009 @ 7:24 am

    The book is awesome and you pizza looks terrific.

  27. Esi — March 18, 2009 @ 7:36 am

    Nice pizza! I have really got to get this book. I keep seeing so many wonderful creations from it.

  28. Melissa — March 18, 2009 @ 7:57 am

    I’ve heard CB talking about this bread too. I’m drooling. That pizza looks phenomenal!!

  29. Cathy — March 18, 2009 @ 8:57 am

    Yeah! You know that I am a believer — I made the bread at your urging, and it IS fabulous! I’ve done the boule and the baguettes, and still have some dough left. I am going to make this pizza tonight! We’ve got lots of veggies to use up!

  30. Sarah — March 18, 2009 @ 9:22 am

    Right now I’m making sandwiches on the panini press with the master recipe: Roll out dough into individual circles, fill like a calzone, seal up, and toss on the press until they’re done.

    Bagels are next on my list!

  31. Passionate About Baking — March 18, 2009 @ 9:35 am

    Couldn't find the book here & finally found the recipe on MotherEarth I think. I've made the boulle (part oat & part whole wheat flour added)=YUM! I've got dough in the fridge now & I'm thinking pizza for the weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

  32. Maria — March 18, 2009 @ 9:42 am

    Cathy-I am so glad you tried it. Let me know how the pizza works out!

    Sarah-I want to try the bagels too!

    Passionate About Baking-I want to try it with whole wheat flour, did it work?

  33. Pam — March 18, 2009 @ 10:03 am

    I really need to get the book – the artisan bread looks perfect as does this pizza.

  34. Reeni♥ — March 18, 2009 @ 10:42 am

    You’ve convinced me! I have to get the book. I think it was when you said “whenever we were craving fresh bread or pizza, we just cut off a portion of the dough.” That rocks! The pizza looks awesome!

  35. Natashya — March 18, 2009 @ 11:43 am

    I have been using whatever Art-in-5 dought I have going on in the fridge for quickie pizza crusts too – I agree, just one more reason that this is a great book to have on hand – for beginners and seasoned bakers alike.

  36. Sara — March 18, 2009 @ 11:46 am

    LOVE homemade pizza. I’m making pizza tomorrow night using one of Peter Reinhart’s dough recipes.

  37. Ingrid — March 18, 2009 @ 11:51 am

    Nope, not sick of bread, never! taking you at your word that this is the easiest bread to make I ordered the book, should be here Saturday. I’ll let you know how it goes and email ya with any questions. 😉

  38. Maria — March 18, 2009 @ 12:08 pm

    Reeni-I am glad I convinced you:)

    Ingrid-Let me know when you try it out!

  39. pinkstripes — March 18, 2009 @ 12:09 pm

    I love making my own pizza dough. your pizza looks delicious. I’m so going to have to get that book.
