Homemade Pizza DoughPrint This
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 Tablespoon sugar or honey
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 3 cups bread flour
- In the large bowl of a mixer, add yeast, water and sugar. Let rest for 8-10 minutes until blooming and frothy.
- Pour in salt, olive oil and 2 cups of flour. Mix until completely incorporated. Add the remaining flour, ¼ cup at a time, until you get a slightly tacky, but not sticky, ball of dough.
- Knead for 6-8 minutes. Your dough should have pulled completely away from the sides of the bowl and the bowl should be clean. If the dough is still sticking to the edges, add more flour and repeat the kneading time. (If going to freeze, divide into portions, wrap in plastic wrap and place in freezer bags. Remove ALL air while sealing baggies and place in freezer. To use, remove from baggie and plastic wrap, place in oiled bowl and let sit out to get to room temp and rise. About 6-8 hours)
- Lightly grease the bowl and turn the dough over to coat in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise 1 ½-2 hours, until it has doubled in size.
- Pull dough out, cut into two pieces. Place one piece in the refrigerator as you prepare your first pizza, stromboli or calzone.
