Thanks to Fr. Dominic for allowing us to use his recipes for this Sweet Crust Pizza. They are from his outstanding pizza cookbook called: Thursday Night Pizza, Fr. Dominic's Favorite Pizza Recipes, Reedy Press, 2010.

One way to use this Sweet Pizza Crust is to make an Apple Pie Pizza.

Let Dough Rise for at Least: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: Two 12"-14" Medium-Thick Crusts

Ingredients:

  • Sweet Crust
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups flour

Preparation:

In a medium-sized bowl, stir to dissolve yeast and brown sugar in warm water; let stand for about 5 minutes. Stir in milk, salt, and melted butter. One cup at a time, add 3 cups of flour, mixing each time until flour is thoroughly incorporated. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead for 5 to 8 minutes, adding small amounts of flour to keep the dough manageable. Lightly oil the surface of the dough and place in a medium-sized clean bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let Sweet Crust Pizza rise in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Makes two 12" to 14" Sweet Crust Pizzas medium-thick crusts, or three smaller ones

Note from Fr. Dominic: "This is a basic sweet dough recipes, really --- if you added an egg you could make dinner rolls! --- but makes a nice crust for dessert pizzas."
