Basic Pizza Dough
1 cup warm water
1 package active dry yeast
2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine the water, yeast, and 1 1/2 cups of the flour in a large
bowl. Mix well. Add the oil, salt, and remaining flour. With large
wooden spoon or your hands mix the ingredients together until
the dough holds its shape. You may need a bit less flour, so add
the last half gradually.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth
and elastic, about 5 minutes. If the dough becomes sticky, sprinkle
a bit more flour over it.
Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled 2-quart bowl. Cover the
bowl with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, and let the dough rest
until it has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
When the dough has risen, place it on a lightly floured surface,
divide it into two or more parts and roll them into balls. Cover
them with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes. The dough is ready
to be shaped, topped and cooked.
