Ray's Pizza Crust Recipe

| | Comments (2)

My sister Becca needed a couple recipes while on vacation. Here are my pizza dough and her most excellent "Death By Chocolate" cake...

Pizza Dough
(makes enough for two large pizza pans)

2 1/2 C warm water
1 T yeast
3 T sugar
1 T salt
1/4 C oil ( I have used veg or olive and never notice a real difference)
6 to 7 C flour

Dissolve yeast and sugar in water. Add some flour. Then add salt and oil, mix in then add the remaining flour till a medium stiff dough is formed. Knead, cover, let raise till double or till the kids start screaming that they're starving. Roll out and put on pans (I spray mine with cooking spray then dust with cornmeal) top with toppings and bake at 450 for about 12 min. You don't have to let the dough raise a second time while on the pan but Bec says she did and it turned out well so take your pick!

Death By Chocolate Cake

1 pkg Devil's Food cake mix
1 pkg (3.9oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1 pint sour cream
3/4 C veg oil
1/3 C Tia Maria or Kaluah (do we even know what these flavorings are???) Bec uses water, I just ignore it all together!!
6 oz semi-sweet choc chips

Preheat oven to 350 grease bundt or ten inch tube pan.
Mix all ingredients except chips at medium speed for two minutes. Stir in chips. Pour into pan and bake one hour. Cool in pan on rack for ten minutes then invert. Decorate with sifted powdered sugar.


this is so cool rachel. say hello to dane for us and tell him thank you for sharing his wonderful family with one happy grandma and one happy grandpa.

HI Ray!
Tia Maria and Kahlua are liquers - Kahlua is a coffee flavored one, but not sure about the Tia Maria - maybe it is choc flavored (who knows). My resident lush is busy with a pt. or I would ask her. (Sorry - I know that is tacky but I do have some nurses that are quite the party animals!) Thanks for the recipes - I will defintely use them! Take care, neva
