Pizza Dough


3 ½ – 4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

1 packet instant yeast or 2 ¼ tsp dry yeast

1 ½ c lukewarm water


In a bowl mix together 3 ½ cups of the flour, the salt, and the sugar.  Make a well in the center and pour in the oil and water and yeast. Gradually mix in the flour until all is incorporated.  Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead it for 5-10 minutes, using the rest of the flour if the dough is sticky. Place it into a lightly greased bowl to rise for about an hour.  

Cut dough into two equal parts.  Flatten and shape each into a roughly 10 inch round, or one large pizza, and top as you like.  Bake in a 450 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes
