Pizza Dough
Makes: 10 servings
Yield: 2 pizza crusts
Cook 10 mins
Ingredients
  • 2/3  cup  warm water (105 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1  package  active dry yeast
  • 1/2  teaspoon  sugar
  • 1 3/4 - 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
Directions

1. In a small bowl combine warm water, oil, yeast, and sugar, stirring to dissolve yeast. Let stand about 10 minutes or until foamy.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine 1 cup of the flour and the salt. Stir yeast mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.

3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth but just slightly sticky (3 to 5 minutes total).

4. Shape dough into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 45 minutes).

5. Punch dough down. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Use as directed in individual recipes.
