Sous Vide Pizza Dough

sous vide pizza

When you think Sous Vide, I bet the first thing to come to mind is not pizza dough, right?! If pizza dough in a water bath sounds kind of nerdy, you’re right! It is-and we love it! 

Sous vide will quickly become your best friend in the case of this pizza emergency...Frozen Pizza Dough!!  Here is the scenario:  that legendary 72-hour pizza dough you made last week is in the freezer and your guests are arriving in 2 hours.  Shut the front door!  That dough will defrost at room temperature in about 5-8 hours.  Not going to work!

Don’t stress-we have your back. We are going to sous vide your frozen pizza dough back to life, fast-track!  Pull out your immersion circulator, Anova, or whatever brand you have and set the dial between 80-85 F to warm up the bath.  Make sure your dough is protected in a waterproof container and place it in the bath.  Less than two hours later your dough will be good to go - super pliable and ready to stretch!  

Get yourself a sous vide machine and get your pizza party back on schedule!  Emergency eliminated.

 The dough stretched out beautifully.  We topped this one with tomato sauce, shredded fontina and chopped white onion.
