Nothing Special, but when making homemade pizza this is the go to dough.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 Tsp Active Dry Yeast (1 Packet)
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup Warm water (105ºF – 115ºF)
  • 3 Cups bread flour (can use bleached or all-purpose flour)
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil for dough and a little more in the bowl for rising

 

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 500ºF and place pizza stone in to preheat as well.
  2. Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mixture gets foamy, if after 10min no foam appears toss in trash and try a new packet of active dry yeast.
  3. Place the flour, salt and olive oil in the work bowl of a food processor.
  4. Pulse about 5 times to mix; scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the motor running, slowly pour the liquid yeast mixture through the feed tube. Process until a dough ball forms. Continue to let the machine run for an additional minute to knead.
  5. Lightly coat the inside of a large bowl with olive oil. Add dough, turn to coat in oil and cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm, draft free place for ~1 hr or until dough has doubled in size.
  6. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and gently fold over to deflate the dough.
  7. Form into desired crust size(s).
  8. Bake in oven for 5-7 minutes with desired toppings.
