Hi, bread newbie here
Id just like to introduce myself. First time posting here. I have great interest in baking but little experience. I want to build my skills by trying new recipies, and i am interested in seeing what you all can make.
Today i am going to be baking some pizza dough. Feel free to criticize my method, i know my baking needs work and i want to improve.
2 cups flour
4.5 grams instant yeast
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp of rosemary and oregano
2/3 cups water (about, amount varies)
I first start with a cup of flour and the yeast. I mix that together then add the rest of the ingredients, other then a cup of flour. I add water to all the ingredients and stir till it is doughy, then i begin to add the rest of the flour in little by little. Once it gets firm enough, i knead it for about 20mins then let it rise for half an hour. I preheat the oven to 450 and bake it in a glass dish for 20 mins, take it out, brush olive oil on, and put it back in for 10 min. When its all done i let it cool for half hour.
The problem here is my dough is too..doughy. It is way too chewy on the inside even though the outside is cooked golden brown. What am i doing wrong here? I want nice, airy dough with defined bubbles. i dont get bubbles with my recipe. thanks for the help
