Put beer in your pizza crust! Here's how

The Evolution of Pizza

When it comes to making pizza dough, it can become a real science experiment. But after a few test trials, Gourmetpompey found a way to incorporate beer (beer!) into her pizza dough—and thus, Beer Pizza was born. She found that warming the beer before mixing it with the dry ingredients was the winning trick to make a fluffy and beer-fragrant dough.

Beer Pizza

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 packet yeast
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup warm beer
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced green bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced yelllow bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced orange bell pepper
2 cups Pizza sauce; I pick a good kind with maybe garlic or basil in it and low sodium.
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1 pound hot Italian sausage, cut up; cook sausage until just slightly pink
2 tablespoons fresh chopped garlic
1 cup fresh mozzarella—nice thick slices for the top of the pizza
