Classic Pizza Crust Recipe ~ PIZZA RECIPES
package active dry yeast
1/2 cups sifted flour
cup warm water
tablespoon cooking oil
large mixing bowl, combine the yeast, 1 cup of flour, and the salt. Mix. Next,
add the water and oil. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape the sides of
the bowl and continue to beat on high speed for 3 minutes. By hand, stir in
enough flour to make the dough stiff. Knead until smooth which can take up to
10 minutes. Place in a well greased bowl and turn the dough until it is lightly
and let rise for about 1 1/2 hours or until the dough has doubled in size.
Punch it down and chill for 2 hours. Cut the dough in half. On a floured
surface, roll the halves into 12 inch circle and about 1/8 inch thick. Brush
the surfaces of the dough with olive oil and add the toppings of your choice.
Cook at 425* for 25 minutes.
