Ingredients Jump to Instructions ↓

  1. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (may substitute whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the all-purpose)

  2. 1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast

  3. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  4. 1 cup warm water

  5. 1/2-1 tablespoon olive oil

  6. cornmeal , for sprinkling

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Mix a little sugar into the warm water.

  2. Sprinkle yeast on top.

  3. Wait for 10 minutes or until it gets all foamy.

  4. Pour into a large bowl.

  5. Add flour, salt, olive oil.

  6. Combine.

  7. Knead for 6-8 minutes until you have a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (add a bit more flour if you need to).

  8. Cover and let rest for 20-30 minutes.

  9. Lightly grease two 12-inch pizza pans.

  10. Sprinkle with a little bit of cornmeal.

  11. Divide dough in half.

  12. Place each half on a pizza pan and pat it with your fingers until it stretches over the whole pan.

  13. Try to make it thicker around the edge.

  14. If desired, pre-bake at 425 F for 10 minutes (I don't always do this).

  15. Then spread with pizza sauce and use the toppings of your choice.

  16. Bake at 425 F for 10-20 minutes longer or until bubbly and hot.

  17. Makes 2 12-inch pizzas.

  18. If you don't want to use all the dough, you can freeze it.

  19. Take a portion of dough, form into a ball, rub olive oil over it and place it in a freezer bag (the oil makes it easier to take out of the bag).

  20. When you want to make a pizza, take dough out of freezer and allow to thaw before using.
