Homemade Pizza Dough
As promised, here is a good pizza dough recipe. It takes a little time and planning ahead, but is so worth it.
1 pkg. yeast
3/4 c. warm water
3 c. bread flour
1 t. salt
1 T. olive oil
1 t. honey
1. Combine the yeast and warm water in a mixing bowl.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients in order and mix in mixer at speed 2 for 10-12 minutes.
3. Place in a slightly greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth, then let rise for 1 1/2 hours.
4. Divide into two equal parts and roll into pizza crusts. (Sprinkle board with a small amount of flour or cornmeal to prevent sticking to the rolling pin.) Makes 1 large pizza crust or 8 individual crusts.
