This dough recipe is a 24 hour refrigerated rise recipe. Therefore, prepare the dough the night before and let it rise in a cold fridge. The next day bring the dough to roughly room temperature so it is easier to work with and preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
With an American style dough you don't want to toss it around too much. I find that tossing around a pizza will lead to a thin NY style center. With this pizza dough recipe you want it evenly thick so press it out well.
I form the dough mostly on my pizza peel then transfer it to the pizza screen which has been heavily sprayed with cooking spray. Spread it out to the edges of the screen. I worked the 17 inch dough recipe enough where it perfectly fit on the 17 inch screen.
First things first I added the sauce and shredded Mozzarella cheese.
Next I added the onions, peppers, sausage and pepperonis.
I baked this monster in a preheated 450 degree oven on the middle rack for about 15 minutes. I rotated the screen every 5 or so minutes.
Using the screen allows for a nice crisp American style dough. This dough recipe is soft and fluffy with a nice crisp on the bottom.
