Where did the time go….I just realized it’s August!
This was a nice treat for the guests tonight as they enjoyed wine on the porch.
for the dough:
3/4 c warm water
1/2 tsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp yeast
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 c all-purpose flour ( divided )
1/2 tsp salt
for the parmesan butter:
3 Tbsp unsalted or salted butter, melted
1 1/2 Tbsps grated parmesan
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp sea salt
Place water and sugar in a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Stir until sugar dissolves.
Sprinkle yeast over the water and stir few times. Let sit until foamy.
Turn the mixer on low speed and add 1 cup of flour and salt. Mix until combined.
Add oil and mix well.
Gradually add as much of the remaining cup of flour as you can mix until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
In the meantime, preheat the oven to 220 degrees F and when it’s ready turn it off. Keep the door closed.
Grease the skillet.
Place dough onto a floured surface and fold the dough few times until you feel it’s smooth and not sticky anymore. Shape into a ball.
Roll out the dough into a size of your skillet.
Place in skillet. Stretch up the sides. Cover with a kitchen towel and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
Take the skillet out of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make indentations in the dough with your fingers.
Mix melted butter, parmesan, seasoning and sea salt in a small bowl. Brush the dough with half the butter.
Place skillet with dough in the preheated oven and bake 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush with remaining butter. Let cool until safe to the touch and slice. Enjoy.
