Pizza Buns

Ingredients

For the pizza bun dough:
2 1/2 – 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast
1 cup of quite warm water (120-130° F.)
1 Tbsp. vegetable, canola or any other neutral tasting oil

For the toppings:
350 ml. (12 oz. or 1 1/2 cups) of your favourite pizza sauce
3 cups shredded cheese

Instructions

1.For the dough: In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the kneading hook, mix together 2 1/2 cups of the flour, the sugar, salt and instant yeast. In a measuring cup, combine the warm water with the oil. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Knead by hand or with the mixer until the dough comes together in a ball and is smooth. It shouldn’t stick to your hands or be dry and crumbly (**add more flour in 1/8 cup increments or more water in Tablespoons, as necessary to achieve this). Grease a bowl and place the dough ball into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, about 30 – 45 minutes, depending on how warm your kitchen is.

2.Get two baking sheets ready

3.Remove the dough to a floured cutting board. Cut the dough evenly in half. Cut each half in half again. Cut each piece in half again, to make multiple pieces.

4.Rolling: Dust a rolling pin and your rolling surface lightly with flour. Take a piece of dough and roll into a shape about 1/4-inch thick. Place the dough shape onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with each dough ball, placing each on the prepared sheets (you can place them fairly close together as they don’t spread much).

5.Topping: With all your rolled dough on the baking sheets, using a teaspoon from your cutlery drawer (not the measuring kind) top each piece with a heaping teaspoon of pizza sauce (about as much as it will hold) and spread it over the top, going as far to the edges as you can without it going over the sides.

6.Top with a generous amount of cheese. Repeat with all the buns.

6.Baking: Preheat oven to 375° F. Place baking sheets in the centre of the oven. Bake for 18-20 minutes (for thin buns – longer if you made fewer, thicker buns). then remove buns to a cooling rack.
