Vegan Pizza Dough
1 cup warm water
2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon granulated coconut sugar
3 cups unbleached organic all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons coconut oil
Step 1: In a measuring cup, place warm water. The water should be warm to the touch making sure it's not too hot because hot water will kill the yeast; and water that is too cold will not activate it. Pour the yeast into the water, add sugar, and stir until both ingredients dissolve and a beige mixture results. Let stand for 5 minutes, until a thin layer of creamy foam covers surface, which indicates that the yeast is effective. Tip: If bubbles/foam have not formed within 5 minutes, start over with a new package of yeast
Step 2: Combine 3 cups flour with sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in your yeast mixture and coconut oil. Using a spoon, stir flour into well, blending well to get rid of any lumps. Next, place dough onto a lightly floured surface. Dust your hands with flour and knead gently. Turn and repeat until the dough is silky and elastic (less than 5 minutes) Add a little Coconut oil to your hands if the dough is too dry. Tip: if you knead too much it overdevelops the gluten in the flour and results in a tough crust..
Step 3: Form dough into a ball and lightly coat with coconut oil. (Less than a teaspoon) Place dough back in mixing bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and drape a kitchen cloth over top..
Let the dough rise in a place warm place (68 to 72 degrees) until it has doubled in size (about 1 to 2 hours). When the dough is ready, punch it down using your fist, to eliminate the air bubbles..

Can the coconut oil and sugar be substituted? Due to allergieries is the only reason I'm asking🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻ReplyDelete
When I make dough, I do not use sugar and I mix the flour and yeast together then use an avocado seed oil cooking spray to make the dough manageable because I like the dough this way.
