“It’s easy to make savory Amish Friendship Bread dough for fresh pizza, stromboli, braided spaghetti bread, meatball bubbles and more!”
Prep Time: 20-30 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes for pizza crusts
Yield: 1-2 large crusts and 4 mini crusts
2 1/2 to 3 cups flour
1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
1/4 to 1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- In a medium bowl, mix flour and salt.
- Add in Amish Friendship Bread Starter and oil. Mix well with your hands.
- Add water as needed to get a good dough consistency. It should be well-mixed, but not too sticky.
- Add more flour as needed.
- Knead dough 10-12 times.
- Place your dough in a well-oiled bowl in a warm place.
- Let dough rise all day (if you mix in the morning) or all night (if you mix in the evening.)
- Then punch dough down and knead again a few times.
- Divide dough depending on your size of cookie sheet or use.
- Flatten dough into crusts on a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake dough in a 350° F (175° C) preheated oven for 5-8 minutes or until dough loses its sheen.
- Remove crust from oven, add pizza toppings.
- Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes.
Drafty or cool kitchen will cause the dough to not rise. Place the bowl of dough on a low setting heating pad to help the dough rise.
After the first baking, crust can be frozen. Dough can also be used for Stromboli, Braided Spaghetti Bread, Meatball Bubbles, and more. Make several recipes and freeze them until ready to bake.
