The Food Guys have a yen for pizza and pizza-making accessories: pizza stones, pizza peels, and the pièce de résistance: an outdoor portable wood-fired pizza oven. They're fans of baking Italian thin-crust, lightly-topped pizza outdoors in summer, when an oven, fired up to 750 degrees F, can cook an entire pizza in ninety seconds. (Or so claims Greg Patent.)
When they're in a pinch, Greg Patent and Jon Jackson like to use pre-made refrigerated pizza dough, because: "If the dough has been refrigerated for a number of days, it tastes better. There's been enzymatic action on the flour and aromatic compounds are released."
But making your own pizza dough is easy; you can find many basic recipes online. Dump three cups of flour, one package of instant yeast, two teaspoons of salt, two tablespoons of olive oil and a cup of water into a food processor and mix and you've got pizza dough. There's no need to add sugar. Let the dough rise on the counter, or if you're working ahead, for a couple of days in the refrigerator.
