If you love making pizza dough at home you may be interested in experimenting with your dough to create some new flavor creations. In today’s post, were going to explore some of the top ingredients you can add to your pizza dough for improving flavors:
Herbs: infusing your pizza dough with dried or fresh herbs can be a fantastic way to pack in extra flavor. Adding herbs like rosemary or oregano can boost the flavor in your dough. Experimenting with dill or other herbs can also help bring tangy notes to your pizza.
Infused oils: adding infused oils to your dough like rosemary oil, roasted garlic, sage oil or truffle oil can make sure you have some great flavors to add into your dough. Around 3 teaspoons is all you’ll need to create a unique flavor.
Garlic: diced garlic in your pizza dough or roasted garlic can be a great way to add complex flavors into your pizza. Adding 2 teaspoons of diced garlic or 3 teaspoons of roasted garlic can change the flavor profile of your dough.
Beer: your favorite beer can have a massive impact when it comes to adding more malty flavors into your dough. Replacing 25% of the water in your dough with your favorite beer can really change the flavor.
Barley malt syrup: a Barley malt syrup can add extra sweetness and flavor into your dough. For dough that regularly calls upon sugar, try using this ingredient instead. This can add new sweetness into the dough and improve the way it browns. A teaspoon or tablespoon can be useful depending on the size of your dough recipe.
Consider these top ingredients if you are interested in changing the composition of your pizza dough for the better.
