directions

  • Dissolve yeast and sugar in hot water.
  • Let sit for 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile mix flour and salt.
  • Pour yeast mixture over flour mixture and mix well with a heavy spoon.
  • Turn onto floured surface and knead for 2 minutes.
  • Spread into a 12-14" circle.
  • (I do this directly onto a pizza stone with a marble rolling pin).
  • If you roll it out on a counter top, transfer to a greased pizza pan, stretching to edges.
  • Cover with sauce and desired topping.
  • Bake at 500 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until edges are golden.

    I made a double recipe for a 16 inch pan, and while that was a little thick for my taste, my husband and picky son liked it. I also added some oregano, garlic powder and onion powder for a boost. Another thing I did was brush the pan and dough with olive oil. Seems like it made it easier to press out. I was concerned since I had doubled the recipe that it might not cook through, so as the oven was heating up, I placed the pizza crust in the oven while it warmed up, which took about 3 minutes. It all turned out very well, and though I made changes, I think it's a great base recipe. Thank you for posting!

    Worked really well, but I had trouble timing the baking on my pizza stone (cooked in the BBQ). Also, Is it not necessary to let the dough rise before rolling it out ? I did for about 10-15 minutes.
