DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl combine salt, honey, olive oil, and cool water.
  • Mix well and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine warm water and yeast. Allow to proof for ten minutes.
  • After proofing combine honey mixture and yeast in one large mixing bowl.
  • Add flour, one cup at a time, into the combined liquid mixture. Dough is an art - depending on your paradigm you may want to work this with your hands, add a T of water if it is dry.
  • Place dough ball on lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
  • Place dough in covered buttered (melted) bowl and allow dough to rest for 30 minutes. A slightly warmed oven (90 degree) is great.
  • Divide into two equal sized dough balls.
  • If using a pizza stone, place stone in oven and preheat oven to 450 for at least ten minutes.
  • Roll out into two pies and add your favorite sauce and topping combinations.
