2 ½- 3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 package of yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup very warm water (120-130 degrees)
Makes 2 pizzas.
In a large bowl mix 1 cup of flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Add olive oil and water. Beat with a mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes. With a spoon, stir in enough flour until it forms a soft dough and leaves the side of the bowl . On a floured surface knead for 8 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth and springy. Loosely cover the dough with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
