1 3/4 cups
1 1/4 cups
( or substitute more flour)
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/4-1 1/3 cups
( enough to make a smooth, soft dough)
( optional, see note above)
olive oil, for brushing
- Mix together all dough ingredients and knead on a lightly-floured surface until smooth and soft. Do not over-knead; dough should hold together but look rough on surface.
- Allow to rise in a warm place, covered, for 45 minutes.
- Refrigerate dough for 4-36 hours, to allow dough to slowly rise and develop flavor.
- Shape into a 12-14 inch circle, brush with olive oil (if desired), and bake on a pizza stone or greased pizza pan at 400* F for about 10 minutes, or until just beginning to turn golden.
- Top and bake as desired.
