Ingredients

  • Makes two 1-pound balls

  • 1 1/2

    cups warm water

  • 2

    packets (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast

  • 1/4

    cup olive oil, plus more for brushing

  • 2

    tablespoons sugar

  • 2

    teaspoons coarse salt

  • 4

    cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

Directions

1.Place the warm water in a large bowl; sprinkle with yeast. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Brush another large bowl with oil. 2.Whisk sugar, oil, and salt into yeast mixture, then stir in flour with a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms. Transfer to oiled bowl; brush top of dough with oil. Cover bowl with oiled plastic wrap; let stand in a warm spot until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour. 3.Turn out dough onto a well-floured surface. With floured hands, knead until smooth, about 15 seconds; divide into two equal balls. To freeze dough, set balls on a plate (they should not touch); freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Then freeze in a labeled, resealable plastic bag up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
