It's a good thing I started early because for a five ingredient recipe this takes a little time. After mixing and then kneading for a good ten minutes, (my pre-pizza gorgefest workout) I left the dough under a damp towel to rest for an hour.
The crust when baked was not as tender as I'd hoped. It felt fine while I was kneading it but I think it may be my fault for not letting it rest long enough. I was too hungry and excited to wait much longer than 15 minutes afer the second punch down and kneading.
We made three pizzas, one with just cheese for my daughter and two with veggies. As an experiment, I laid the Daiya down first with the vegetables on top while the other had the Daiya on top of the veggies. I think I had really high expectations for the cheese, never a good idea because as far as I'm concerned it did not live up to the hype. It was good and melted well on one of the pizzas but the pizza that had the cheese on top was a little dry and not as gooey. Flavour wise, again it was just okay, definitely not as salty as regular cheese. Despite my reactions to the product and dough, I managed to scarf down an entire dinner plate sized pizza all by myself. Now I need a nap.
