Ingredients
  • 16 ounces warm water
  • 2 ounces dry packet yeast
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds high gluten flour
  • 1/2 ounce salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • In a small container, combine the warm water and yeast, and stir. In a large bowl combine the flour and salt, and mix together with the yeast and water. Mix together until a dough forms, and knead until smooth and elastic. The dough should be firm with a slight spring. Place dough in an oiled bowl, and cover until dough rises and doubles in size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Once the dough has risen, scrape dough from bowl onto a floured surface. Knead again, and shape into a disc. Cover dough and let rise again for about 45 minutes.

  • After the second rising, stretch dough out and shape it for your pizza. Dress the pizza as you wish, and bake for approximately 20 minutes.
