Pizza Dough

Try it you’ll like it… easily makes 2 crusts or one very thick large pizza. Great for calzones or breadsticks for dipping.

INGREDIENTS

SERVINGS:  8-12UNITS US
  • 2 14teaspoons fast rising yeast
  • 1teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 2tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 12teaspoons italian seasoning
  • 1 12cups warm water
  • 3 12cups flour

DIRECTIONS

  1. In large bowl, dissolve yeast and brown sugar in the water.
  2. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Stir the salt, oil and italian seasoning into the yeast mixture.
  4. Mix in 2 1/2 cups of the flour.
  5. Turn dough out onto a clean, dry surface and knead in more flour until the dough is no longer sticky.
  6. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl, and cover with a cloth.
  7. Let the dough double in size.
  8. Should take about 1/2 hour if in warm spot.
  9. Punch down and let rest a minute.
  10. Roll out, and prepare your favorite pizza.
  11. I use a pizza stone sprinkled with a bit of corn meal.
  12. Once I have the dough shaped I bake it plain for about 5-10 minutes, then pull out of oven and add toppings, just seems to work better every time.
  13. Bake in preheated oven 425 degrees until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
