DIRECTIONS

  • In food processor fitted with metal blade, combine flour, salt and yeast; process until well mixed.
  • With the machine running, pour in hot water and oil (down the feed tube) and process 35 to 45 seconds, or until smooth; add a little extra flour if necessary.
  • Remove from processor and form into a smooth ball.
  • Place in an oiled bowl, turning ball until completely coated with the oil.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise, in a warm spot, for about one hour.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Lightly rub a small amount of olive oil on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  • Punch down pizza dough and, on a floured surface, roll out into a rectangle to fit your cookie sheet (your dough will be about 1/4 inch thick).
  • Place dough on oiled cookie sheet and spread your choice of sauce and toppings (and cheese!) on it; bake pizza for approximately 20 minutes.
