Pizza Dough

My mom sent me this recipe and we use it every Friday night. It makes a delicious, soft, thick crust. Steve likes to cut it in half to make thinner pizzas.

1 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Stir water, sugar, and yeast til dissolved. Add olive oil and salt. Stir in flour until well blended. Let rest 10 minutes.
(I usually knead it at this point to increase the elasticity, but it's not written in the recipe.) Form dough and place on pizza stone. Add toppings. Bake 15-20 minutes at 425.

  1. We use this recipe about once a week, too! It also makes a really tasty foccacia with some coarse salt and chopped fresh rosemary on top. I also mix in a little garlic powder... yum! :)
