Classical Pizza Dough Recipe from Eastern Europe

Today we are showing you how to make a classical Eastern European Wood Fired Pizza. This pizza is amazing and has a totally different flavor profile. If any of you have traveled to Eastern Europe you will know that distinctive taste. For all of you who have not traveled to Eastern Europe, I will try to describe that distinctive taste. This recipe has eggs and milk in it, very similar to a biscuit in richness. Whole eggs can be added to the dough to provide better browning characteristics to the dough and to some extent also provide a richer flavor. The dough will roll out very easily since it is a soft dough. It is best rolled out by a rolling pin rather than hand stretching.

Ingredients for the Eastern European Dough Recipe:

  • 1 cup warm water 
  • 1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast 
  • 2.5 pounds 
  • 1 cup warm milk 
  • 1.7 ounces vegetable oil 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 teaspoon sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • +1 Cups of warm water if it needed it.

Making the Pizza Dough: 

  • Add the warm water and yeast in a bowl. Let the yeast activate. 
  • Add all the ingredients in your dough mixer and need it for 10 minutes. 
  • Let the dough rise while covered for about 2 hours at room temperature.
