MMMMM----------------CLASSIC ITALIAN PIZZA DOUGH--------------------- 2 c Lukewarm water; (72 to -75f) 1 1/2 ts Active dry yeast 7 c Unbleached all-purpose -flour; up to 8 1/2 tb Salt Olive oil * preferably mixed red and yellow heirloom varieties ** Ricotta salata, a salted and aged ewes milk cheese from Italy Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 550 degrees F or as high as your oven will go, for 30 minutes. Gently flatten a dough ball on a floured board and begin stretching into a rough circle about 8 inches in diameter Do not pound or pinch the dough or it will not stretch. Place the dough on a well-floured pizza peel or back of a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with some of the garlic. Leaving a 1/2-inch rim, cover the dough with one sixth of the tomatoes, alternating red and yellow slices. Place on the stone and bake until the crust is light brown, about 3 to 4 minutes. While the pizza is baking, prepare the next round of dough. When the crust is browned, slide out the oven rack and sprinkle with about 1/2 cup of the ricotta salata. Slide the rack back in and bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until the cheese is slightly melted and the crust is browned. Transfer to a plate and top with a pinch of oregano, a sprinkling of basil, and a drizzle of olive oil. Repeat with all the remaining dough balls. Serve hot. Note: Greek oregano is available at Middle Eastern and specialty stores. Makes six 8-inch pizzas Directions for pizza dough: Combine 1/4 cup of the water and the yeast in a large mixing bowl or heavy-duty mixer fitted with a paddle. Stir to dissolve the yeast in another bowl, mix together 6 cups of the flour and the salt. Add 1 cup of the flour to the yeast mixture and mix with a wooden spoon or on low speed in mixer. Stir in the remaining water and start adding the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing until smooth after each addition. Turn the flour out onto a well-floured board and knead, or change to dough hook on mixer and knead on medium speed, adding enough flour to make a soft but not wet dough. Knead until smooth and uniform, at least 5 minutes. Divide the dough equally into 6 pieces and form into balls. Flatten with the palm of your hand. Place on a well-floured baking sheet, 3 to 4 inches apart. Brush the dough with olive oil and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place for 2-1/2 to 3 hours, or until doubled. Makes six 8-inch pizza crusts. Cafe Lago is a Seattle restaurant institution famous for its wood-fired pizza oven. Fueled by a variety of woods, this oven fires up to 800 For 900 F, turning out pizza with a crisp crust and a hint of wood smoke. Toppings vary seasonally--this one is a summer specialty. Heirloom tomatoes deliver incredible flavor and color; to slice the tomatoes thin enough, use a serrated knife. Ricotta salata, a salted and aged ewes milk cheese from Italy adds a tangy jolt . The pizza is finished off with a sprinkling of fresh basil, crumbled Greek oregano for a distinct Mediterranean flavor and a drizzle of the finest extra virgin olive oil.
