Make Beet Pizza Dough
In the bowl of a stand mixer add 1 cup of warm water, sugar and yeast. Allow the yeast to bloom for 5 minutes.
Next, add the salt, flour and beet puree. Mix on low to incorporate all the ingredients, then increase the speed to medium. Add additional flour as needed to form a soft and spongy dough. Cover the bowl and allow dough to rise for 1 hour.
Get ready to roll and cook the dough! Preheat your oven to 475 F. Sprinkle cornmeal onto your pizza stone or sheet tray. Set aside.
Flour a countertop or large board to roll out the dough. If using a round pizza stone, divide the dough into 2 and using a rolling pin, roll out each portion into a circle. If using a large sheet tray use the entire dough and roll into rectangle shape.
To roll the dough, flour the rolling pin, start at the center of the dough and roll outwards, continue rolling around the dough until you have made your circle or rectangle. Place on your pizza stone or sheet tray.
Place your pan into the oven and par bake the crust for 8 minutes. Then your pizza crust is done!
*To continue making a pizza. Add your choice of sauce and toppings and then place back into the oven for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
