Club Sub Sandwiches with Mom's Pizza Dough Recipe

The other day my mom and I were discussing her pizza dough and what she does or doesn't put in it. I was surprised to find out that all she uses is flour, water and yeast. No salt, so sugar and no oil. I guess I always thought she used those ingredients for some reason.

Well, I am going to give that simple recipe a try here, in making the base for submarine club sandwiches.
These turned out perfect, just like Big Al's, the restaurant that inspired them.

Homemade Sub Buns
3 cups flour, plus extra for kneading
1 cup warm water, plus extra as needed
1 package active dry yeast
olive oil for bowl

Add flour to bowl of stand mixer and make a well. Add water and yeast. With dough hook, mix dough til it comes together into a ball, adding more water as needed.

Meanwhile, oil a large bowl lightly. Add dough and roll til covered with oil. Cover bowl with a towel and let rise in a warm place til doubled, about 1 hour.

Remove from bowl and knead a few times on a lightly floured surface. Cut dough in half and shape into two submarine shapes (whatever size you prefer). Cover and let rest about 15 minutes.

Preheat oven and pizza stone to 450°.

Bake subs about 10-15 minutes, or til golden brown. Cool and slice each in half lengthwise.
