Quick Beer Pizza Crust

If you love to bake, I hope you know who King Arthur Flour is. I’ve waxed poetic on why their flour is some of the best in the business, and they’re the only flour I use in my kitchen. Did you know King Arthur Flour has a blog too? The talented bakers at King Arthur Flour take to WordPress and post some pretty awesome recipes each week.

When PJ Hamel’s Quick Beer Pizza Crust came through my RSS feed, I knew I had to make it. I’ve had years of pizza experience – worked for some famous chains and some family owned pizza restaurants all through high school. But it’d been a long time since I felt the pillow-y softness of perfectly proofed dough in my hands.

Kneading dough can be a fantastically cathartic experience. Making this pizza crust brought back all those friend-filled after-school-job days, the days when I first realized I simply loved making food for people.

The addition of beer in pizza crust is both inspired and insane. Insanity in that James and I could NOT stop eating it.

You can use any pizza toppings you’d like, but I highly recommend our choices: marinara sauce, leftover grilled curry chicken, diced small (we used a pre-marinated package from Trader Joe’s), mushrooms, fresh basil, and lots of cheese.
