Ingredients

  • Makes 2 13-inch pizzas (or 1 focaccia)

  • 1

    cup (250 ml) lukewarm water (regular water, the liquid that mozzarella is packaged in, or a mix—see Note)

  • 2

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3

    cups unbleached, all-purpose flour

  • 1

    packet (about 2 teaspoons) instant yeast

  • 2 1/4

    teaspoons fine sea salt

Directions

Place a baking stone or baking steel on the bottom rack of the oven. Heat the oven to its highest temperature (probably 500 or 550° F). In a cup with a pouring spout, combine the water and the olive oil. In a food processor, combine the flour, yeast, and salt. Pulse to blend. Add the liquid slowly through the feed tube, pulsing until just before the dough forms a ball, 15 to 20 seconds—you might not need all of the liquid. (Adjust as needed: If the dough is too wet, add a little more flour. If it is too dry, add a little more water.) Transfer the dough to a clean work surface and form it into a ball. The dough should be soft. Divide the dough into two equal balls. The dough can be used immediately or can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Punch down the dough as necessary. Note: If you use the water mozzarella is packaged in for the entire cup of water, taste a tiny bit first. If it's really salty, consider dialing back the salt in the dough.
