Four-Cheese Pizza

Servings: 4


Half of prepared Master Pizza Dough
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin Aged cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin mozzarella and Fontinella cheeses, shredded
1/4 cup (3/4 ounce) Wisconsin Parmesan or asiago cheese, grated
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian herbs
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Master Pizza Dough:
5 3/4 to 6 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 package Fleischmann’s Rapid Rise or Active Dry Yeast
2 cups water
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil

Cooking Directions:

Master Pizza Dough:

In large bowl combine 2 cups flour, salt and yeast. In small saucepan heat water and olive oil to 125 to 130° F. Add dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes with electric mixer at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes (20 minutes for Active Dry Yeast). Divide in half; shape and bake half according to selected recipe. Freeze remaining half.

Spread the pizza dough evenly on a 12" pizza pan. Spread sauce over crust. Distribute sausage evenly over sauce and top with remaining ingredients. Bake at 425° F for 18-22 minutes or until the crust is crisp and golden. Cut into wedges. Serve hot.
