    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    Love, love this recipe! So many great things to say about it: ridiculously easy to make, incredibly delicious, and it can be stored in your fridge for up to 2 weeks. Perfect for an afterschool snack or an easy dinner! Don't get overwhelmed by all of the instructions - you just have to read through them once - its basic pizza making.

    1. 1
      Combine warm water (about 100F), olive oil, yeast and salt in a 5-quart bowl; preferably, in a lidded (not airtight) plastic container or food-grade bucket.
    2. 2
      Measure the flour using a "swoop and sweep" method. Reach into the flour bin with your measuring cup, scooping up a full measure all at once, and sweeping it level with a knife.
    3. 3
      Mix until all of the flour is incorproated (kneading is not necessary) using a wooden spoon or a food processor with a dough attachment.
    4. 4
      Cover with a non-airtight lid.
    5. 5
      Allow to rise at room temperature for 2 hours.
    6. 6
      DO NOT PUNCH DOWN! You want to retain as much gas in the dough as possible. A reduction in gas will make your pizzas and flatbreads dense.
    7. 7
      Refrigerate and use over the next 14 days. Refigerate at least 3 hours before using.
    8. 8
      On Pizza Day.
    9. 9
      30 minutes before you're ready to bake, place a pizza stone at the bottom third of the oven and preheat it at your oven's highest temperature.
    10. 10
      Prepare and organize your toppings.
    11. 11
      Dust a pizza peel (or a large cutting board/flat cookie sheet) with enough flour or cornmeal to easily tranfer the pizza over to the hot stone.
    12. 12
      Pull up and cut off a 1/2 pound (orange-size) piece of dough.
    13. 13
      Using a little flour (enough so it won't stick to your fingers), stretch and shape the dough into a ball.
    14. 14
      Sprinkle your work area with a little flour. Using your hands or a rolling pin, roll out and stretch the dough until it is approximately 1/8" thick and 12" wide.
    15. 15
      Place the finished dough onto the prepared pizza peel and add the toppings of your choice.
    16. 16
      Carefully slide the pizza onto the hot stone (if it isn't sliding, you will need to sprinkle more flour or cornmeal between the pizza and the pizza peel, until it moves.
    17. 17
      Check for doneness after 8-10 minutes - it may take a few minutes longer. Turn the pizza around if the one side is browning faster than the other.
    18. 18
      Allow to cool slightly on a wire rack.

      I've had your recipe saved for some time now ,and today was my daughters 22 birthday and she wanted homemade pizza so I decided to use this recipe for my pizza crust , it was great! <br/>Followed your directions to a T ,didn't have a pizza stone so I baked it about 10 minutes on a pizza pan and then slid the pizza off of the pan right onto the oven rack that I had moved to the lower part of my oven and finished baking worked like a charm. The dough was very easy to work with and tasted great crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside ! <br/>I like that it made more than one or 2 crust's so now we can have pizza another night this week , it's really an awesome recipe one I will use again and again , thank you!

      Incredibly easy to mix up and it baked up really nice. It's going to be so convenient to have this on hand and ready to bake. Thanks for sharing the keeper recipe.

      Wow!! this is the best easy pizza dough there is. Simple and better with age. Just like life. Can be used for all kinds of recipes. Bead sticks, pizza, calzones, pita? and so on. Heat your oven roll the dough, top and cook. 5 min its cooking. Faster than take out and better.
