Basic Pizza Dough
- 3 2/3 C bread flour
- 2 1/4 oz 7g envelopes instant yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 C tepid water
- 2 T olive oil, plus more for the bowl
Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, add the water and oil, and stir to make a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured work surface about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
Roll the dough into a ball. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and turn to coat the dough. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm place until doubled in size.
