- 1 1/2 cups warm water (110°F/43°C)
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 (1⁄4-ounce) package active dry yeast
- 3 1⁄4- 3 1⁄2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 8 ounces Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar or Cabot Sharp Cheddar, grated (about 2 cups)
In bowl of mixer fitted with dough hook, combine warm water and sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Sprinkle yeast on top and let stand until yeast is dissolved and foamy, about 10 minutes.
Add 3 cups of flour, oil and salt; knead mixture on medium speed for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic, adding more flour as needed if dough doesn’t clean side of bowl (it will still be slightly sticky).
Add cheese and knead for about 1 minute longer until well mixed in.
*Alternatively, make dough in food processor, kneading in cheese by hand at end, or make entirely by hand, kneading for 8 to 10 minutes.
Place dough in oiled bowl, turning to coat, cover with plastic wrap and set aside to rise until doubled in volume, 1 to 2 hours. (If you don’t wish to use all of dough immediately, you may refrigerate part of it for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months; bring back to room temperature before shaping and baking.)
Set EGG for indirect cooking (with convEGGtor) at 425°F/218°C.
Punch down dough and divide into 4 equal pieces. Press each piece into approximate 10-inch round. Brush top of each round with some of garlic oil.
Place rounds oiled-side-down on Pizza/Baking Stone and cook until browned on underside, 2 to 4 minutes.
Brush tops with additional garlic-thyme oil, turn rounds over with tongs and cook until browned on second side and cooked through to center, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Remove to cutting board. Drizzle with any remaining garlic-thyme oil, cut into pieces and serve.
