The other post was about mixing dough in a food processor. I thought I would try to combine the two and see what happened.
The ingredients for the dough I used were:
1.25 cups AP
1 teaspoon yeast (I just tried IDY
8.5 Tablespoons water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
I. first mixed the IDY and water (that was 90 degrees F) and let it sit for about 25 minutes
2 put mixture into food processor
3 added 1 cup flour, pulsed food processor until mixed
4 added sugar, salt and oil, pulsed more
5 add 1/4 cup flour and pulsed until it looked like it was mixed
6 took out of food processor and patted with flour
7. put in ziplock bag and let it sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
8. refrigerated overnight.
9. used today
The dough was sticky so I put some flour on both sides of the dough. Rolled out the dough with a rolling pin and then docked on both sides. Put dough into aluminum Christmas tree mold (that I greased with vegetable oil) and cut dough with knife. I cut the rolled out dough at the top of the mold and gently patted it in mold and par-baked until I thought the dough looked par-baked. I then put sauce and cheese top of crust. Baked and then took out and put on deck until bottom looked finished.
I had left over dough which I balled and used later today for another pie. The taste of this crust was very tasty and crunchy. The crust was also very thin. I gave samples to my family and other stand holders. They all liked how crunchy the crust was. In conclusion, I will try this recipe again. It was easy to make, roll out and the final crust was great.. It was easy to prepare using the food processor.
