DIRECTIONS

  • Combine water and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the sugar, salt, and oil.
  • Add half the flour and mix.
  • Add remaining flour and knead until smooth.
  • Cover with a clean kitchen towel and put in a warm spot to rise for about half an hour.
  • On cold days, briefly warm your oven, then turn it off and put the bowl in there. Leave the lightbulb on to provide a bit of warming.
  • Punch the dough down and split into 2 to 3 pieces depending on how big you want your pizzas and how thick you like your crusts.
  • Press onto a greased cookie sheet or pizza pan until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick for thin crusts.
  • Spread your favorite sauce, sprinkle on grated mozzarella, add toppings, and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes.
