Chocolate Chip Pizza

Yield:
1 pie
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • Pizza dough:
  • A 1/4-ounce package (2 1/2 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 to 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package chocolate chips
Directions
  • In a large bowl proof the yeast with the sugar in 1/3 cup lukewarm water for 10 minutes or until it is foamy. Stir in an additional 1/3 cup lukewarm water, the oil, 2 cups of the flour, and the salt and blend the mixture until it forms a dough. Knead the dough on a floured surface, incorporating as much of the remaining 1/4 cup flour as necessary to prevent the dough from sticking, for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it is smooth and elastic.

  • Alternatively, the dough may be made in a food processor. Proof the yeast as described above and in a food processor combine it with the remaining ingredients. Process the mixture until it forms a ball, adding more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, if it is too dry, or more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, if it is too wet, and knead the dough by processing it for 15 seconds.

  • Put the dough, prepared by either method, in an oiled bowl and turn it to coat it with the oil. Let the dough rise, covered with plastic wrap, in a warm place for 1 hour, or until it is double in bulk, and punch it down.

  • Sprinkle an oiled 14-inch black steel pizza pan or black steel baking sheet with the cornmeal. roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a 14-inch round and fit it into the pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips.

  • Bake the pizza on the bottom shelf of a preheated 500 degree electric oven or on the floor of a preheated 500 degree gas oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
