1/2 Photos of Grama Bonnie's Pizza Crust
1 hr 10 mins
This is my absolute favorite pizza crust. My grandmother has been making it for as long as I can remember. She's Irish and a wonderful cook but my Italian grandfathers' hand is definitely in this crust! It's shorter than most and has a flaky, tender, nearly pastry like texture. To get the full benefit of its yumminess I suggest cooking your pizza on a throughly heated pizza stone. (The active prep time includes the rising time and the cooking time is after the pizza has been rolled out and topped)

- 1Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
- 2Combine the yeast and sugar in a small bowl and add warm water. Warm means hot enough that you can only hold your finger in it for about 2 or 3 seconds but not so hot that you have to jerk your hand away.
- 3Allow the yeast and water to get bubbly, about 8 minutes.
- 4Add the yeast/water/sugar mixture and the olive oil to the dry ingredients.
- 5Gently mix with a wooden spoon and then switch to your hands. Dump the dough on a wooden board or counter top and knead until smooth and elastic (about 6-8 minutes). You may need to add more flour.
- 6When kneaded place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel. Set in a warm place and allow to rise until double (about 45minutes).
- 7After the dough has risen gently punch it down, knead again and then divide into two equal pieces. Each piece is enough for an approximately 11inch pizza.
