Pizza dough (12 – 6 inch pizzas)
- 1 package dry yeast (or 1 fresh yeast or a teaspoon of dry yeast)
- A scant cup of lukewarm water
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- A pinch of salt
- 1 tbs olive oil
Pour the warm water in mixing bowl and add the yeast. Let it stand for a few minutes to soften, then add flour, salt and olive oil, whisking the first cup in to mix it thoroughly, then adding the more to make bread dough.
Turn the dough out onto a counter with the remaining flour (don’t be afraid to use more).
After the bowl is clean, wipe it out, add a little oil to the bottom, put in the dough and turn it to coat. Cover and let rise until double in bulk, about one hour in a warm place.
Take one small ball about the size of a golf ball. Roll it into a disk 6 inches across and put it on a cookie sheet.
