Thanks to Fr. Dominic for allowing us to use his recipe for Sweet Crust Pizza. You can find this recipe and more in his outstanding pizza cookbook, "Thursday Night Pizza, Fr. Dominic's Favorite Pizza Recipes."
One way to use this Sweet Pizza Crust is to make an Apple Pie Pizza.
- 1 package active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup lukewarm water
- 1/2 cup lukewarm milk
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 3 1/2 to 4 cups flour
In a medium-sized bowl, stir to dissolve yeast and brown sugar in warm water; let stand for about 5 minutes.
Stir in milk, salt, and melted butter.
One cup at a time, add 3 cups of flour, mixing each time until flour is thoroughly incorporated.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead for 5 to 8 minutes, adding small amounts of flour to keep the dough manageable. Lightly oil the surface of the dough and place in a medium-sized clean bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let Sweet Crust Pizza rise in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Makes two 12" to 14" Sweet Crust Pizzas medium-thick crusts, or three smaller ones
- Note from Fr. Dominic: "This is a basic sweet dough recipe, really --- if you added an egg you could make dinner rolls! --- but makes a nice crust for dessert pizzas."
