What it does better? Cleans up the kneaded dough! Yup, and that stuff ain’t easy to get off. I was seriously impressed. The only down side is that I got too usde to the Vitamix cleaning itself and felt compelled to make the spatula clean itself too…if only.
Anyways, here’s the pizza dough recipe we used.
Makes 1 large pizza base or two small pizzas.
- 1 yeast packet
- 2 tsp of caster sugar
- 1 cup of warm water
- 2.5 cups of plain flour (wholemeal or half/half if you’d prefer)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbs of oil
- Put the yeast, sugar and water together in a bowl. Stir slowly till combined and leave to sit for 5 minutes.
- Put flour and salt in the Vitamix. Starting at 1 crank it up to 6 until a hole forms in the middle.
- Stop the Vitamix and add the yeast mixture (after the 5 minutes) and oil.
- If needed use a spatula to wipe/push down the sides of the jug.
- Starting at 1 again, switch to high mode- alternating between on and off for 5 times. (in bursts)
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 as necessary until the dough has formed a ball and is binded.
- Remove from the jug and place in a covered bowl somewhere warm for 15-20 minutes.
- Preheat a fanforced oven to 200 degrees celsius, and gather toppings for your base.
- After the waiting time, roll the dough out on a floured board till desired thickness and size.
- Top with desired toppings and pop in the oven for 16-20 minutes.
