Recipe by Miraklegirl

This is an easy, really good pizza dough from the cookbook that came with my KitchenAid mixer. Last night, I topped it with grilled vegetables, pine nuts, and fresh mozzarella but the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!

I use this recipe all the time. It is important to only put as much flour as needed usually closer to 2.5 than 3.5 cups. Sometimes I double the olive oil, sometimes I add herbs to the dough such as rosemary or italian seasoning.
