Napoletana Pizza Dough

This is the "best" pizza dough ever. Much harder to handle than the rest of others, but worth all the work and effort. It is an overnight dough from Peter Reinhart, however his instructions are for using electric stand mixer and I have successfully used my bread maker set on dough. Bake temperature is highest your oven will go. Mine is at 500 F for about about 9-10 minutes. I have used this recipe several times now and so impressed with this dough. The ingredients are for making six 9-inch to 12-inch pizzas and sauce and topping of your choice. This dough will be very soft unlike other pizzas dough. Very important to leave about 1/2 inch border around the pizza without the sauce so that edges puff up beautifully. Also, best not to overload on topping. I've used two types of topping schemes now - the pizza Margherita style (homemade tomato sauce, slices of mozzarella, basil and sprinkle of Parmesan only) and another version with homemade tomato sauce, grilled wild mushrooms, several pieces of salame, slices of mozzarella, basil and Romano and both are really incredible tasting to me. Peter Reinhart uses pizza peel and recommends pizza stone, but I have a heck of a time with using a peel and pizza stone is too big for my oven so I do not use and had no problems pizzas working out perfectly using this modified version. I am mostly putting this recipe up for my own ease of usage and retrieval, but wanted to also share with anyone who was interested in trying.
