Tasty Tuesday - Beer Pizza Date Night

A night in making pizza can be fun, especially for a couple looking for a cheap date night. 
It has become a family event every Saturday. My teen boys love the homemade dough and creating their own pizza with too many toppings. Hubby and I remember the days when just he and I would pour some wine and enjoy the time in the kitchen with only each other.

Here is the recipe I used for my
Beer Pizza Dough.


    • 1 1/3 cups water ( Or 1 Cup Water and 1/3 Cup Flat Beer for better flavor)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
    • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
    • 3 1/2 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast


1.   Add ingredients to machine in order.

2.   Set to “Dough” mode.

3.   Once completed, place in greased pan to rise about 20-30 min, and split in half.

4.   For easy storage, put in Ziploc bags, stack flat to be used as needed. Will be good for 2 days.

5.    When you are ready to make pie, slap the dough on a cornmeal/floured surface, roll flat, Hand spin if you are willing to trash the kitchen with flying pizza!  

6.   Add light layer of sauce and pre-bake at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes.

7.   Remove from oven and add toppings of your choice.

8.   Bake in oven at 400 degrees until done (approx 20 min, depending upon topping thickness).
