  1. In a large bowl add the flour, semolina flour, yeast and salt and mix together. Add warm water and mix. Slowly add olive oil and start to knead. Knead in bowl for about 3 minutes or until combined and mostly smooth.
  2. Wipe out bowl and line with olive oil. Add ball of dough back in and combine with olive oil. Put damp cloth on top of bowl and let rise in warm place for 1 hour.
  3. Take dough out onto floured surface and knead once or twice. (Can place dough in fridge at this point up to 3 days or in freezer up to 5 months!)
  4. Sprinkle an even amount of semolina flour over entire surface of pizza stone (or pizza tray). Place pizza stone in cold oven and preheat oven to 450‎ºF
  5. With a rolling pin, roll out dough until large and round. Take out hot stone or tray and place pizza crust on top. Fold over sides slightly to fit on stone
  6. Prepare dough and place peaches and goat cheese on dough. Bake for 12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, add almonds and honey and bake for 8-10 more minutes
Notes & Tips:

This is my famous never fail pizza dough. Whole wheat white flour is a nice blend you can find in any supermarket but you can make this fully white or fully white or fully whole wheat and it still comes out superb!

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

  • When using fresh spinach in a salad, even if it is already dressed and “soggy”, the beauty is that the leftovers just taste like you cooked the spinach! So be sure not to throw out your leftovers and if you are feeling really nuts bring it to work and serve it ON TOP of your pizza slice!
