Kids favorite all across the country!
Makes two- 12″ deluxe pizzas.
1 1/2 cups – warm water (120° -130° F)
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Envelope active dry yeast
1 1/2 Tsp. –sea salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 Cups unbleached flour
Pour the warm water and sugar into a large mixing bowl, stir, then sprinkle the yeast on top. Stir the mixture until it’s dissolved and allow to sit for ten minutes until it’s bubbly.
Add the salt and olive oil and stir again to combine the ingredients. Add 1 cup of flour and stir until it’s well mixed. Add the second cup of flour and stir well. Add the 3rd cup of flour and combine. By now the dough mixture should be fairly thick. Place the last cup of flour on the counter or bread board and, with your hands, begin to combine and knead the dough.
You may need to add a dusting of flour from time to time to reduce the stickiness of the dough. Knead for 5 to 8 minutes or until the dough no longer sticks to your hands and it’s smooth.
Coat the dough with a thin layer of olive oil, and place it in the bottom of a large mixing bowl that has also been coated on the inside with olive oil. Cover the top of the bowl and set it in a warm place such an as un-lit oven.
Allow the dough to rise for 60 to 75 minutes. The dough will have grown to at least twice its original size.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Take the dough out of the bowl and cut in half with a knife. Take each dough portion and hand-mold them into balls. Roll each to a 12” circle and place on heated pizza stone or cookie sheet. Bake as is or top with favorite toppings for about 15 minutes or until browned.
