DIRECTIONS

  • Add sugar to water. Dissolve yeast in water.
  • Add 4 cups flour and salt.
  • Beat well with wooden spoon.
  • Add the rest of the flour one cup at a time.
  • When dough starts to pull away from the side of the bowl, turn out on floured board and knead until smooth.
  • Place dough in a bowl that has been oiled w/ olive oil.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk.
  • Cut into two portions and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Pat or roll out in pans.
  • I use 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 jelly roll pans.
  • Sprinkle edges of crust with cornmeal if you like.
  • Spread with your favorite sauce, cheeses and topping.
  • Most pizza is cooked on high heat 500°F+ for 15-20 minutes until cheese in the middle is bubbly and the bottom of the crust is browned.
  • A hint-- Pizza cooks from the outside in so don't overload the middle of the pizza too much-- and have the cheese,sauce and toppings go right to the edge.
